SOMETIMES STORIES CAN SAVE THE WORLD

Best enjoyed by AGES 7 & UP

“In most fairy tales, princesses are beautiful, dragons are terrifying, and stories are harmless. This isn’t most fairy tales.” When Princess Violet and her best friend Demetrius discover a forbidden book in a hidden room, they unknowingly release the evil Nybbas into their world. The two friends pair up with an ancient dragon to try and save their kingdom, but the wicked creature’s triumph or demise all depends on how the story is told. This enchanted tale by the Minneapolis-based, Newbery Winning author of The Girl Who Drank the Moon comes to life on our stage in an enthralling adventure about the power of stories to change the world.

  • Drama

In Euripides’ tale of hubris and tyranny, a disguised Dionysus descends on the city of Thebes to prove Zeus is his father and settle a score with his mortal adversary King Pentheus. His attempts to tear the people’s loyalties away from the king cause a frenzy of emotion that lands Dionysus in prison. But Pentheus’ misguided attempt to suppress the god’s influence tests his leadership and threatens to bring his family to ruin. With striking visuals and bewitching beauty, legendary director Anne Bogart gives this ancient tale a modern, razor-sharp edge.

“We’re all of us meant to be heroes”. Join us for the regional premiere of playwright Keith Bunin’s unforgettable tale of adventure, love, loss and redemption. Drawing on a vast array of influences from the Bible, to The Odyssey, to Shakespeare, The World Over masterfully speaks to the original beauty and goodness of the human person, while showing just how far we’ve fallen. At once wholly fantastical and profoundly truthful, Bunin never leaves us without humor or hope in this epic story of a man in search of his home. Adam believes he is the lost prince of Gildoray, but nobody else in the world believes that Gildoray even exists. Adam will journey the world over, battling monsters, enduring shipwrecks, and daring deeds of heroism, to search for his lost kingdom and save his people.

"THE WORLD OVER is exceeding wise: a profound, insightful, thought-provoking examination of the most fundamental aspects of our humanity.” -NYTheatre.com

When you gotta go, you gotta go, but it's a new world— where everyone has to pay to pee!

Oh, what terrible times are these! A 20-year drought has forced the town to regulate water consumption; therefore, Urinetown has outlawed the use of private toilets. The citizenry must use public, pay-per-use amenities owned and operated by Urine Good Company, a malevolent corporation run by the corrupt Caldwell B. Cladwell.

Is there someone out there who will stand up to this tyranny? OF COURSE there is... it's a musical after all! Laugh, cry, hold your water until intermission, but don't miss the latest from Theatre 55.
