Catch it again or for the first time! Spookley the Square Pumpkin sprouts back into our Hopkins Jaycees Studio for an encore performance this autumn! When Spookley arrives in the pumpkin patch he is teased by all the other pumpkins because of his odd shape. Even after his new friends—the boisterous spiders Edgar, Allen and Poe—try to convince him to run for the Pick of the Patch contest, Spookley still isn’t sure he has what it takes. However, a threatening storm may just give Spookley the inspiration to discover his own worth. This imaginative puppetry extravaganza filled with memorable music will surely encourage you to “dare to be square!”

Flavio Betrayed - A Commedia 
Oct 13 - 29, 2017

By Scott Ford
This high-spirited comedy, written by Resident Director Scott Ford, is filled with disguise, deceit, insults, romance, friendship, stinky cheese, and contemporary pop culture references. It follows the delightfully convoluted story of our hero Flavio, whose best friend is trying to steal the hand of his beloved Isabella, while her father attempts to marry her off to another suitor who is considerably past his prime. It is up to Isabella’s faithful and clever servant Pedrolino to dodge danger and keep them together.

Scott Ford’s ridiculously silly play had its world premiere performance at Anoka Ramsey Community College and Lyric Arts couldn’t be more proud to give this show its professional debut.

Presented by Bucket Brigade
  • Musical

Jeremiah and Vanessa Gamble, the creative team behind Kingdom Undone, and ‘Til Death: A Marriage Musical, present their newest labor of love, Sam’s Son, a Prohibition-era Americana musical loosely inspired by the biblical story of Samson.  While this musical is not that story specifically, it is inspired by themes in the original story– purity, hypocrisy, judgment, and liberation. Jeremiah says, “I saw that the Prohibition era echoed those same themes and has striking parallels with our country today.”

St. Paul’s tainted bootlegging history is not lost on the authors.  Their unique performance venue is Art House North, a 100+ year old church in the West 7th neighborhood of St. Paul, and home to their theater company, Bucket Brigade. The show will take place on both levels of the church, the upper level holding much of the action, while the downstairs lobby is transformed into a speakeasy serving German pretzels from Brake Bread and draft root beer from Vine Park Brewery.

SYNOPSIS:  Gifted with unnatural strength, Sam Jr. wants to accomplish great things, but his reverend father seeks to shelter him from the wide world.  When a Prohibition agent comes digging for secrets in the town of Goode, Sam and his father get caught up in a tangled mission of truth, where lies get revealed at great cost.
