It’s Not You, It’s Me
by Don Zolidis
Directed by Kelly Huff.

Whether your boyfriend is a Canadian secret agent or monk in training, or your girlfriend is a psychic or pathological liar, one thing is for sure: they are about to dump you. Exploring the painful art of breaking-up through comedic, awkwardly realistic characters, this series of wildly hilarious scenes are sure to make you feel relieved not to be the receiving end of those five fatal relationship words.

This Is a Play   
by Daniel MacIvor
Directed by Brock Lammers

A smart, funny play about a play ~ the creative process counterbalancing the sheer sweat, bad wigs and tricks of performance. MacIvor‘s spoof sets up (and knocks down) what actors might be thinking about while performing.

Amadeus is a play by Peter Shaffer, which gives a highly fictionalized account of the lives of the composers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri. In the play, significant use is made of the music of Mozart, Salieri and other composers of the period. The premieres of Mozart’s operas The Abduction from the Seraglio, The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, and The Magic Flute are each the setting for key scenes of the play. Amadeus won the 1981 Tony Award for Best Play. It was adapted by Shaffer for the 1984 Academy Award winning film of the same name.

Written by Woody Allen and premiered on Broadway on November 17, 1966, playing 598 performances at three different Broadway theaters, Don’t Drink the Water is a cascade of comedy. This affair takes place inside an American embassy behind the Iron Curtain. An American tourist, a caterer by trade, and his wife and daughter rush into the embassy two steps ahead of the police who suspect them of spying and picture taking. It’s not much of a refuge, for the ambassador is absent and his son, now in charge, has been expelled from a dozen countries and the continent of Africa. Nevertheless, they carefully and frantically plot their escape, and the ambassador’s son and the caterer’s daughter even have time to fall in love.

Two heart-warming family favorites for the holidays presented live on stage for just one ticket. In The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, the Herdman children invade the local church, after being told they serve snacks, just in time to be cast in the annual Christmas Pageant. Christmas will never be the same again. Then, the classic TV special, A Charlie Brown Christmas comes to life, with all its wonderful characters caught up in the rush of the holiday season, until Linus reminds them of the true meaning of Christmas.

These activities are made possible in part by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the State’s general fund and its arts and cultural heritage fund with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
