THE MOST MAGNIFICENT THING

THE DESIGN PROCESS COMES ALIVE! A STEM-INSPIRED STORY!
WORLD PREMIERE

APRIL 12 – MAY 12, 2019
ALL AGES

The design process comes alive on our main stage this spring! A young girl has a wonderful idea. “She is going to make the most MAGNIFICENT thing! She knows just how it will look. She knows just how it will work. All she has to do is make it, and she makes things all the time. Easy-peasy!” But as the girl tries and fails, repeatedly, she finds invention is anything but easy. Working through her anger and frustration she “smoothes and wrenches and fiddles,” and she “twists and tweaks and fastens,” until she manages to get it just right. Our world premiere musical adaptation shows that it’s okay to make mistakes as we create, tinker and achieve.

AGES 7 & UP

HIDDEN HEROES is based on the book Hidden Human Computers: The Black Women of NASA. By Sue Bradford Edwards and Duchess Harris. Published by ABDO Publishing, Minneapolis, MN. Copyright © 2017

“It doesn’t matter what you look like, what your size is, what your color is. You can be anything you want to, but you do have to work at it,” says Annie Easley’s mother to her young daughter. In the 1950’s and 60’s the black women of NASA fought against racial and gender discrimination for a place on the leading edge of math, science and technology. Be inspired this spring, as we tell the stories of how these women were influenced as young girls to eventually make critical contributions that launched US astronauts into space and returned them safely back to Earth.

The Gun Show by EM Lewis

Featuring Lauren Diesch, directed by Emily England

From a farming community in rural Oregon to the big cities of Los Angeles and New York, playwright EM Lewis takes aim at her own relationship with firearms in “The Gun Show.” An actor shares Ms. Lewis’s unique perspective and true stories about America’s most dangerous pastime as if they were her own, with brutal honesty and poignant humor. Leaning neither right nor left, “The Gun Show” jumps into the middle of the gun control debate, and asks “Can we have a conversation about this?”

In the madcap comedy tradition of Lend Me a Tenor, the hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s.  At the moment, they're playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with five actors.  On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George's dalliance with a young ingenue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom:  Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his move remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel.  Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter's clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they're actually performing, caused by Charlotte's deaf old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George's body.

It’s the age of artificial intelligence, and 85-year-old Marjorie – a jumble of disparate, fading memories – has a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her.

In what’s considered her signature theatrical piece, once hailed as “the theater event of the year” (Time), Tony Award-winning director and playwright Mary Zimmerman juxtaposes the ancient and the contemporary in a visually stunning theatricalization of Roman poet Ovid’s powerful masterwork, Metamorphoses. Performed in and around a large pool of water, a ravishing effect, an ensemble of actors embodies figures from Greek mythology to share both well-known and rarely told stories of transformation.

SET A ft. Taylor Seaberg and Dua Saleh - Thursday, Friday & Saturday May 9-11 @ 7:30pm

Weirdo_Indigo Child

Written and directed by Taylor Seaberg. Featuring Taylor Seaberg, Salecia Barry and Nia Madison.

Weirdo_Indigo Child is a loosely autobiographical, audio/visual play about Evelyn (Evy) Ngiri (Salecia Barry), a genderqueer, Kenyan-American who spends their life growing up on military bases with an adoptive white father enlisted in the Air Force and a hyper-religious, assimilated Black mother. Evy is a boisterous, outspoken, and political black punk rocker going through the growing pains of adolescence and coming-of-age queerness with their confident and charismatic best friend, Cicada Otieno (Nia Madison). The play follows Evy’s search for validity in their identity and conflict over joining the military reflecting their race, sexuality and gender through love of playing the electric guitar and punk music.

A black genderqueer kid floating in the cosmos, Taylor Seaberg is an experimental, multi-instrumentalist and looping artist. They have performed at an MPR sponsored album release show for Chastity Brown's "Silhouette of Sirens" at the Fitzgerald Theater, a Greenroom Magazine sponsored show for Oshun, as well as Minneapolis Institute of Art's Third Thursday Art + Lit events.

Féminaal

Written by Nina Morrison
Directed by Alison Ruth

Féminaal presents a world that satirizes the misogyny in French New Wave Cinema and the culture at large: set in 1960s Paris and the Present Day, this work imagines a setting where women are celebrated for their excess and debauchery and never held to a bizarrely high standard of historical accuracy. A genre-defying and hilarious new play, Morrisons work combines progressive feminist ideals with raucous comedic antics to create a theatrical landscape at once familiar and utterly original.

Performance held at:

Vandalia Towers

BORN 1880. DIED 1911. BURIED…1970…

From his humble beginnings to his improbable end, Elmer McCurdy’s mortal coil did a lot of shufflin’. He pulled on his boots, saddled up his horse, and proceeded to take a long, tragic stumble on the wrong side of the law. From the minute he plopped a ten-dollar Stetson on a five-cent head, it was destined to end with a sharp case of lead poisoning. But for Elmer, dying with his boots on was just the beginning.

If you’re looking for a typical Wild West showdown, well, there you ain’t. If you’re looking for a history lesson, there you ain’t neither.

But head on down to the nimbus spread and we’ll yarn you a yarn of how Grits Crabcake, Li’l Britches, and the most cow-handed, sidewindin’, four flushin’, lowdown, fiddleheaded, green horned, flat-out worst bandit ever came to ruination. And how Elmer done got hisself kilt.

And then, what happened next.
