NEXT TO NORMAL – Music by Tom Kitt, Book and Lyrics by Brian York (July 7-12)
Produced by Yellow Tree Theatre (Osseo)
Directed by Ben McGovern
This Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning rock opera tells the story of a mother battling bipolar disorder and the affect the illness has on her family. Her kaleidoscope of feelings—anger, yearning, sorrow, loss and guilt—coexists in every note in this contemporary musical of muscular grace and operatic force. Unflinchingly honest yet still hopeful, Next to Normal is a feel-everything musical that packs a seismic emotional punch with the electric momentum of a heavy metal concert, the lyricism of a music box and the twanging heartbreak of a country ballad. “A brave, breathtaking musical.”—NY Times
2 SUGARS, ROOM FOR CREAM (July 14-19)
Written, produced, directed, and performed by Shanan Custer and Carolyn Pool (Twin Cities)
Winner of a 2013 Ivey Award, this show takes an honest and silly look at why we drink coffee and other things. It is a series of scenes and original music performed by two beloved Twin Cities performers, Shanan Custer and Carolyn Pool. Sit back and enjoy what audiences called “well-crafted, sweet, sassy and totally delicious!”

LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS – by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman (August 4-9)
Produced by Daleko Arts (New Prague)
Directed by Amanda White Thietje
Based on a 1960 low-budget film, this comedy horror pop musical tells the story of nerdy Seymour Krelborn, who happens upon an unusual (and, as it turns out, lucrative) plant. The plant seems to have a craving for blood and soon begins to sing for his supper. As Seymour’s aspirations for fame and fortune grow, so does the flytrap, until mayhem and murder ensue. The music in this winner of four New York awards for Best Musical is in the style of early 1960’s doo-wop, rock and roll, and Motown.
Back by popular demand with TWO concerts May 29 and 30: The Fabulous Armadillos and Collective Unconscious in 'Takin' It To The Limit: An Eagles Tribute'.
