Presented by Wayward Theatre Company
  • Drama

Wayward Theatre Company is committed to bringing work outside of traditional theatre settings, allowing audiences to engage with texts and spaces in new and exciting ways. Next up on Wayward’s site-specific docket is Shakespeare’s brilliant tragedy; Macbeth, playing at the historic James J. Hill House.

As a follow-up to our extended, sold-out run of Hamlet in the spring of 2018, Macbeth will be the company’s most ambitious endeavor to date. Working side by side in partnership with the Minnesota Historical Society, Wayward will utilize this historic landmark in ways patrons of the arts and of the Hill House have yet to experience.

Macbeth, considered by many to be Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy, brings audiences deep into the minds of an ambitious couple, hellbent on power and position. A supernatural prophecy calls a would-be king and queen to action and as they work to realize their greatest dreams, their world turns suddenly into a living nightmare.

NOTE: There are staggered start times of 7:00 PM and 7:30 PM for this production.

Bain Boehlke returns to the Twin Cities to direct R.C. Sherriff's powerful, multi award-winning masterpiece.  Set in the front-line trenches near Sant Quentin in 1918, towards the end of the First World War, Journey’s End gives a powerful (and beautiful) glimpse into the harrowing experiences of a British Army infantry company, whose story plays out in the officers’ dugout over four days in March, 1918.  With a German offensive imminently approaching, each man is trapped, the days ticking by, the tension rising and the attack drawing ever closer.

Featuring: Jim Ahrens, Aaron Boger, Kevin Fanshaw, Peter Christian Hansen, Craig Johnson, Timothy Kelly, Bob Malos, Carl Schoenborn, Henry Sillman, Benjamin Slye, Alan Sorenson, Caleb Wagner

With the design talents of: Sarah Bauer, Bain Boehlke, Amber Brown,  Kathy Maxwell, C. Andrew Mayer, Carl Schoenborn

Ghost Quartet

7:30 pm
Runs 90 minutes

Elision Playhouse
6105 42nd Avenue North, Crystal, Minnesota

Presented by Theatre Elision
  • Musical

“Ghost Quartet” is a song cycle about love, death and whiskey from Dave Malloy, the Tony-nominated creator of the Broadway hit “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812.”  A camera breaks and four friends drink in an interwoven tale spanning seven centuries, with a murderous sister, a treehouse astronomer, a bear, a subway, and the ghost of Thelonious Monk.  The story draws from several fairy tales and "ghost stories", including Snow White and Rose Red, Edgar Allen Poe's Fall of the House of Usher, and One Thousand and One Nights (commonly known as Arabian Nights). There may also be some Princess Zelda references you might recognize. Cast members present the story and music as a "concept album" and accompany themselves on keyboard, violin, ukulele, guitar, mandolin, banjo, autoharp, dulcimer and 9,000 percussion instruments.  The audience may also be called upon for additional percussion and whiskey drinking.

This 90 minute musical is performed with no intermission.  

Wednesday, October 30th - Post-Show Whiskey Tasting

Thursday, October 31st - Post-Show Halloween Party - Come in costume, get free drink coupon!
