Swimmy, Theatre for the Very Young – Aug 4 - 19, 2017

Journey with us to the depths of the ocean as our Theatre for the Very Young series continues this season with the subtly beautiful tale of Swimmy, based on the Caldecott Honor book by Leo Lionni. Being a different color doesn’t stop Swimmy from teaching his fellow fish to think “outside the box.” His uniqueness is just the thing to inspire his school to work together to ward off impending danger. Swimmy may also just inspire our youngest audiences to join in this imaginative under water adventure.

Blood Debt: A Fringe 2017 Production

5:30 pm
Runs 60 minutes

Bryant-Lake Bowl
810 W Lake St. Minneapolis, MN 55408

Presented by Degenerate Theatre
  • Drama

 

Can one truly justify excessive wealth? Blood Debt is a brutal play that addresses economic inequality. A Person has kidnapped a Billionaire, and forces him to pay a debt in blood while questioning his morals and decadent lifestyle. At this point in our culture, the topics and issues in Blood Debt, though conveyed to the extreme, have never been more relevant. Therefore, this production serves to remind us that, “Poverty is hell. Oppression is torture. And pain is the greatest bonding element. “

Blood Debt, written by local playwright, Austin Lee, marks the premiere production for Degenerate Theatre and features the talents of Holly Peterson and Jeffery Goodson as the Person and Billionaire, respectively. This production contains strong language and violence. It is intended for mature audiences only.

“Loucks has the master storyteller’s art locked.” CRITIC’S PICK Cincinnati CityBeat

“Loucks displays great breadth in his acting, as he skillfully slips under the skins of six different characters, imbuing each one with their own intonations, postures and characteristics.” Charleston Post and Courier

“Loucks is an excellent performer, and theatergoers should watch for him in any future shows. The Biscuiteater is recommended for all.” Central Texas Live Theatre
