"The time is out of joint..."

A king has died. His widow has hastily remarried. The king's son has returned home to find rot and corruption beneath the pristine facade of the state. As the nation is thrown into a whirlpool of chaos, lives are uprooted, and revenge, ambition, and madness reign unchecked. Welcome to Elsinore.

Both timeless and strikingly relevant, Shakespeare’s harrowing exploration of identity, justice, and coming-of-age remains one of the greatest and most complex stories in the western canon. Join the SYT Core Ensemble as they delve into the mysterious, unsettling world of Hamlet.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the backroom of the bowling alley.

The world is a series of ever growing dumpster fires. No, seriously. Look around you. There's one there, one over there, two back there, and one in-between that vaping hut and organic pet food kiosk. Ain't nobody got time for that. Let the savviest comedy troupe in town make you forget about all that, at least for 80-90 minutes depending on applause breaks with sketch, song, stand-up, and some serious silly, slightly off-center.

Join the colorful characters of the London’s Music Hall Royale—a delightfully loony Victorian theater troupe—as they present The Mystery of Edwin Drood, based on Charles Dickens’ final, unfinished novel. The story centers on the young and charming Edwin Drood, who has been mysteriously murdered—but, by whom? His leering romantic rival? Mysterious twins newly arrived from Ceylon? Or, someone else more dastardly and villainous?

Unfortunately, Dickens passed away before revealing the culprit. So, in order to solve the mystery, the killer must be chosen by audience vote, revealing a different ending each night.

A winner of five Tony Awards in 1986, this charming and inventive show-within-a-show is a rip-roaring whodunit and a rollicking evening of jolly good musical fun.

Vanishing Point

Book & Lyrics by Liv Cummins & Rob Hartmann; Music by Rob Hartmann; Original Concept & Additional Lyrics by Scott Keys

Directed by Kari Steinbach

Aviatrix Amelia Earhart, evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson, and author Agatha Christie each vanished mysteriously: Agatha disappeared for eleven days; Aimee disappeared for three weeks; and of course Amelia vanished completely. Vanishing Point, a musical comedy-fantasy, brings these three women together as they solve the mystery of their disappearances from their own lives. The show has a cast of three: the women play not only their central role but also each others’ mothers, husbands, friends, reporters, and so on.

See this incredible performance on 12 select dates between March 6 and 22, 2020 at the Black Box Theatre inside the Bloomington Center for the Arts at 1800 W Old Shakopee Road.

Vanishing Point is a production of The Chameleon Theatre Circle and is part of the 2019-2020 Performance Series presented by Bloomington Center for the Arts, a division of the City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department.

THE RED SHOES takes its title from a classic Hans Christian Andersen story of a young girl and a pair of red shoes, and thrillingly re-imagines it as a film noir fairytale.

Somewhere in the heart of the Big City, our heroine is hiding in a tiny apartment, fearful of venturing out, or of letting anyone (or anything) in. But she’s not alone. A pair of haunted red shoes is delivered to her doorstep, and they propel our her into a harrowing film noir adventure through the labyrinths and spiral staircases of her own mind, where she must face down her fears of what lurks in the subway tunnel, and discover what fate has in store for her up on the rooftop! 

Equally humorous and hair-raising, THE RED SHOES draws inspiration and influences from vintage detective novels, black and white film noir movies of the 1930s and ’40s, and case studies of amnesia and multiple personality. The inventive use of manipulated objects, dolls, and masks provide a dream-like quality to the unfolding adventure.
