A Lutheran take on the classical "hero" journey, RISE UP, O MEN is the story of men (and women) who become larger than themselves; it's the story of a group of farmers and John Deere dealers, and church basement ladies, who rise to the requirement of heroism in order to help their community and its future. RISE UP, O MEN is a new musical featuring the men of the church and your favorite church basement Ladies who serve them. The year is 1964, in the basement kitchen of the Lutheran Church in rural Minnesota. As these hard-working farmers discuss their scrap lumber piles and their tractors and preparations for the Centennial Celebration, they unintentionally disrupt the order of the kitchen...but that's what happens when you let the roosters in the hen house.

This sidesplitting, uplifting peek into the lives of the rural Norwegian Lutherans who audiences first fell in love with in 2005 is the sixth chapter of the story begun in the original Church Basement Ladies. In Rise Up O Men, series familiars Mrs. Mavis Gilmerson, Mrs. Vivian Snustad, and Mrs. Karin Engleson are busy with preparations for the church’s 1964 Centennial Celebration, and the menfolk of the parish have their own problems to solve. Karin’s husband Elroy, farmer Carl and Great War vet Arlo are joined in brotherhood by series staple Pastor E.L. Gunderson. Their camaraderie unites them as they deal with furnace salesmen, looming retirement, rival Protestant denominations, the Pastor’s bad jokes, and Arlene’s even-worse cooking.

On Sneetch Beach, there’s a line in the sand—Star Bellies on one side, Plain Bellies on the other.  That’s the way it is, was, and will be.  At least until the sneaky and greedy Sylvester Monkey McBean comes to town with his Star On machine.  Suddenly, the difference between the haves and the have nots—those with stars and those without—isn’t so clear. What will the Sneetches do now? In this rousing and inventive musical adaptation of Dr. Seuss's powerful parable about the surface things that divide us, it will take a courageous friendship between an unlikely pair of Sneetches to find the answers. 

This work is supported by a Theatre Commissioning and Production Initiative grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. 

This production was commissioned, developed, and originally produced through Children’s Theatre Company’s Threshold new play development lab in Minneapolis, MN.

Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

Florida, 1929: a Cuban-American family eagerly awaits the arrival of a new lector to read aloud to their cigar factory workers. When he introduces them to the classic Anna Karenina, a hot and humid Tampa factory starts to mirror the scandalous Russian aristocracy of Tolstoy’s classic. Love, revenge, passion, and tragedy abound in this award-winning drama.

[CRUZ] HAS TURNED OUT MANY WONDERFUL PLAYS — BUT NONE MORE SHIMMERINGLY BEAUTIFUL.
