Joy and power from the godmother of rock-and-roll

Back by popular demand! Bringing fierce guitar playing and swing to gospel music, Sister Rosetta Tharpe influenced rock musicians from Elvis to Jimi Hendrix and Ray Charles. The story begins in a funeral parlor in Mississippi, as Rosetta and her young protégé, Marie Knight, prepare for a tour that will establish them as a great musical duo.

Songs like “I Looked Down the Line” drive home the sorrow of living in the Jim Crow South, while “Didn’t It Rain” and “I Want a Tall Skinny Papa” will have you dancing in your seat.

Romeo and Juliet’s young love puts them at odds with an ancient family feud. Despite duels and disaster, one boy and one girl believe they can and must be together. A tragic whirlwind of catastrophes and secrets comes to life in this passionate, youthful rendition of Shakespeare’s greatest love story. Love can still conquer all.

A play of magical realism and profound reconciliation

Set in the landscape of Chile’s Atacama desert, this play takes you on a metaphoric quest beginning with the meeting of two strangers searching for the remains of children killed by the Pinochet regime. Chile’s history becomes an examination of the opposing choices, views, and actions that tear families and countries apart; and explores the transformative possibilities that can lead from transgression to redemption.

AIRNESS

Proscenium Stage
By Chelsea Marcantel
Directed by Angela Timberman

Finding your family and your inner rock star

Where do five oddball rock fanatics go to express their inner shred genius? Dingy bars and cramped stages all across the nation vying for a place at the National Air Guitar Championship. Following them on their quest to achieve ‘airness’ on the long road to qualification, this righteous and smile-inducing comedy shows how community is forged in unexpected places.

Proscenium Stage
By Jeffrey Hatcher
Directed by
Michael Evan Haney

An edge-of-your-seat mystery

Sherlock Holmes is dead, or is he? Dr. Watson receives a telegram from a mental asylum: three patients are claiming to be Sherlock Holmes. Did the world’s greatest sleuth fake his own death? Who’s the real detective and who are the imposters? Tight, clever, and full of suspense, this is Jeffrey Hatcher (Sherlock Holmes and the Ice Palace Murders; Mr. Holmes; The Good Liar) at his best.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
