OUR FOUR-SIDED FRIEND RETURNS!
ALL AGES
Spookley the Square Pumpkin sprouts up this autumn in our JC Studio! 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 returns this fall to encourage everyone to “dare to be square!”

A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so when the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the women quickly escalates into a game of practical jokes and one-upmanship, revealing hidden truths that neither wants exposed. Written by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, Ripcord is uproarious and heartwarming comedy.

VIOLENT DELIGHTS
Created by Penelope Parsons-Lord
Based on the works of William Shakespeare

“Through some of Shakespeare’s most famous works, and unsettling renditions of old songs, we confront and grapple with the psyches that populate the nexus of passion, violence, humour and play.”
- Sydney Fringe Festival

In Violent Delights, we explore Shakespeare's obsession with the worst of human behavior as it lives side-by-side with love and passion. Eight actors take audiences on a journey through pleasure, pain, sexuality, and violence using some of the Bard’s most well-known works. At turns comic and sinister, tragic and raucous, Violent Delights is bloody good fun.

Violent Delights will be performed throughout the Twin Cities as ‘pop-up’ performances between October 18 - November 2. 

All performances are pay-what-you-can!
