Theater

My Man Godfrey

Apr. 27-29, F/Sa 7:30pm, Su 2pm Little Theatre of Owatonna Directed by Jon Terrill. In the depths of the Depression, Godfrey, a “forgotten man,” is rescued from his packing-crate home by ditzy socialite Irene Bullock. Irene offers Godfrey a job as butler. Falsely accused by Cornelia of stealing the famous Bullock Pearls, Godfrey uses the opportunity to recover his personal finances and, when the Bullocks end up going broke, rescues them by getting them all (gasp!) jobs in The Dump, a new nightclub Godfrey has built to provide work for his friends and for the Bullocks, too. Tickets: $16 adults, $14 students, available at 507/451-0764, at the box office, or at littletheatreofowatonna.org starting the Saturday before the show opens. The Honeymooners: The Really Lost Episodes

Apr. 27-29, F/Sa 7:30pm, Su 2pm Olde Pine Theatre, Pine Island The stage adaption of the original Honeymooner sketches from Jackie Gleason’s Cavalcade of Stars originally aired in 1951. Tickets: $15, $10 students and seniors ages 65 and older, available at oldpinetheatre.ticketleap.com/the-honeymooners or 507/491-2639. The King’s New Clothes

Apr. 27-28, 7:30pm; Apr. 28-29, 2pm Northfield Arts Guild Theater A delightful retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen story. The vain and childish king is duped by schemers who convince him that they can make him a unique suit of clothes that is not only beautiful, but magical – it can only be seen by those who are honest. What will happen when the king is presented with his new threads? The King’s New Clothes is a funny and fast-paced parable about pride, delusion and human nature. Great for all ages. Tickets: $6, available at northfieldartsguild.org, 507/645-8877 or at the Northfield Arts Guild. Don Quixote

May 3-5, 7:30pm Arcadia Charter School, Northfield Don Quixote and Sancho Panza ride again! Here they are guided by their creator, Miguel de Cervantes, in person. The intrepid Don Quixote and his loyal squire, Sancho Panza, are spurred on by Cervantes to battle giants – or are they windmills? Rescue princesses – or are they swineherds? Attack armies – or are they sheep? Idealistic Don Quixote and pragmatic Sancho Panza learn to deal with the unexpected and the inexplicable as they travel and quarrel through the arid plains of La Mancha. Tickets: $6 adults, $4 students.

The Addams Family: A New Musical

May 10, 7pm; May 11-12, 7:30pm; May 13, 3pm Sheldon Theatre, Red Wing An original story that’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents. Red Wing High School Musical Students show just how talented they are with this annual end-of-the-year musical. Tickets: $13-$20, available at sheldontheatre.org. Anne of Green Gables

May 11-12 7pm, 12-13 2pm Lakeville Area Arts Center When a high-spirited, red-headed orphan girl is sent to live with the Cuthberts at Green Gables, they claim a mistake has been made since they had asked for a boy. But before Marilla and her quiet brother Matthew can send her back to the orphanage, Anne’s winsome ways capture their hearts and her winning personality and funny antics captivate all who come to know her. Audiences will enjoy this charming adaptation of Anne’s adventures from childhood to maturity. Tickets: $13, available at 952/985-4640 or lakevilleareaartscenter.com. Latino (And Friends!) Play Festival 2018

May 11, 18-19, 7pm; May 13, 3pm Northfield Arts Guild Theater A diverse group of high school students come together in an acting and playwriting class to figure out what their topic is for their final theater production. Social media? Real-life human connections? Does Facebook separate or divide us? Fake news? They don’t always agree on the answer, but the one thing they all agree on? They need to finish this assignment! Tickets: $15 suggested donation at the door. All proceeds benefit the Latino (and Friends!) Play Festival. Lyric Theater: Bat Boy the Musical

May 12, 10pm; May 13, 1pm Lion’s Pause, St. Olaf, Northfield Bat Boy: The Musical was inspired by a series of tabloid headlines published in 1992 by The Weekly World News claiming that a terrifying creature, half-man and half-bat, had been discovered in a cave, escaped and was being pursued by government officials. In this musical rendering of the story, a group of spelunking teenagers discover the creature. For lack of a better solution, the sheriff brings him to the home of the local veterinarian, Dr. Parker, where he begins to assimilate to human life and become a part of the Parker family while trying to keep his penchant for sucking human blood under control. With a beat-driven rock score, Bat Boy provides a compelling theatrical metaphor for the dangers of prejudice, intolerance and provincialism.

AUDITIONS:

Find something for everyone at

Next to Normal

May 14-15, 6:30pm for women and 7:30pm for men, Northfield Arts Guild Theater Directed by Eric Parrish. A contemporary sing-through musical with an electrifying book and music. Actors should prepare 36-bars of an up-tempo contemporary or rock style ballad. No advance registration is required. The show features a six-person cast ranging in age from 16-55. A tremendously moving and intimate musical, Next to Normal was one of Broadway’s biggest hits, winning the Pulitzer Prize and three Tony Awards for its heartbreaking, humorous and unflinchingly authentic look at a suburban family struggling with the effects of one family member’s bipolar disorder. Each character’s journey is punctuated by powerful music. Rehearsals are tentatively scheduled to begin May 29 with tech week July 20 and performances July 27-29 and Aug. 2-5.

MUSICIANS Gary Rue

A performer and composer, Gary Rue has been playing music for audiences throughout the western hemisphere since the mid-sixties, beginning with various town halls in the upper Midwest and graduating to East Coast “tent” tours that included the Big Apple (Carnegie Hall as music director and duet partner for Gene Pitney) and on to far-flung points in Canada and the Caribbean. Early along the way, Rue began writing music of his own, and was rewarded with some of his songs being recorded by Nick Lowe and Helen Reddy, as well as many prominent regional artists. He is the author of nearly 80 scores for music theater (including The Stinky Cheese Man, which toured the U.S. and China with Dallas Children’s Theater), a 2010 Minnesota Music Hall of Fame Inductee and an active touring musician and educator.

Berndt Evenson has been in various musical groups since he was a teenager. While playing numerous festivals and clubs in the surrounding Midwest, he was toiling with the sounds that would soon develop into what is now known as Alluvion. His latest release, The Deepest Depths of Shallow Waters, is a whole new beginning in more ways than one. It is an impressive new turn and continues to show that Alluvion’s releases are anything but predictable. The Alluvion concert experience features live midi tweaking, guitar & analogue ribbon improvisation, and heavily effect-driven layered vocals. Evenson seems determined to assure audience members that this is not typical electronic dance music or garage rock; however, once you have seen or heard Alluvion, that becomes delightfully apparent.
