The citizens of River City have got trouble… That’s a capital T, that rhymes with P and stands for “Professor” Harold Hill. He’s a charming, fast-talkin’ traveling salesman who goes city to city starting youth marching bands. Hill promises to teach the kids and raises the money to purchase the instruments and uniforms. There’s just one person who can’t tell the difference between a trombone and a treble clef – Professor Hill.  Everyone is simply enamored by Professor Hill, everyone except for the suspicious town librarian, Marian Paroo.

On a campaign to rid River City of the impending demise of their youth, Professor Hill condemns a variety of activities – including Mayor Shinn’s new pool table in the town parlor. Shinn, incensed, begins an investigation into Professor Hill’s true credentials.  Marian sees right through Professor Hill’s marching band scheme. She’s ready to tell Professor Hill off until she sees her self-conscious little brother, Winthrop, shed his shyness when he picks up a shiny, new cornet. The trouble really begins when Marian’s heart beats a little faster for Professor Hill.

Get into a little trouble with Meredith Willson’s five-time Tony Award-winning musical featuring the unforgettable songs “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Ya Got Trouble,” “Wells Fargo Wagon” and “Till There Was You.” Don’t miss this classic, all-American musical for every generation.

Written by Jones Hope Wooten
Directed by Eric Morris

This touching comedy centers around five Southern women who became friends on their college swim team. The group sets aside a long weekend every August to recharge their relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives. The play begins 22 years after they graduate from college. "The Dixie Swim Club" focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce and aging) that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives in the second act, these friends, proving the enduring power of 'teamwork', rally around their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. It is really a study in friendship and how it grows and changes through the years. 

Jones Hope Wooten are the authors of “Golden Girls” and “Savannah Sipping Society”

THE SHOW

The Crane Theater
2303 Kennedy St NE #120 Minneapolis, Minnesota 55413

Presented by E/D
  • Experimental

THE SHOW, a new contemporary performance by E/D, is a glitter bomb of feminine force that rips off the band-aid of pretense and lets the mess flow. Featuring E/D’s signature combination of journey, abstraction, and unforgettable imagery, THE SHOW is inspired by the angst of girlhood, the women we’ve always wanted to be, and how ugly things are always ugly, even when you cover them in sequins.

It’s loud. Unapologetic. Undeniably exciting. And is proudly made by women artists for everyone.

Created & Performed by Emily Michaels King and Debra Berger

All seating is general admission.

Opening Night: March 13
Pay What You Choose: March 16 and 18
Talkbacks: March 15, 16 and 18
Closing: March 22

Parking and the entrance to the theater are located at the back of the building. Look for the yellow door. There is also ample free street parking available in the evenings.

The Crane is a fully accessible venue. The main entrance is accessible via an external wheelchair lift. Once inside, the theaters, lobby, and restrooms are all at the same grade.
