Human Combat Chess is a recurring show featuring different matches in a fictional sports league playing the sport of Human Combat Chess. Each team fields 16 players of all shapes and sizes that are assigned positions identical to those in the classic game of Chess, who are then ordered to move by their respective Kings. The similarities to Chess begin to unravel when a player moves into a piece occupied by another, as they now fight over the square! This choreographed fight can end with either piece as the victor, holding the square.

To bring you the most entertaining fights possible, we've assembled the best team of fight directors in the Twin Cities area. While some of our actors are taking the board for their first time, we give them ample rehearsal time to make sure each fight is a unique, exciting experience for the audience. This gives the audience the adrenaline rush of MMA with the reassurance that the fighters will come out of it safely.

Human Combat Chess combines the drama of theatre with the edge of your seat thrill of sports, and there's something for everyone. The event is family friendly. If you would take your kids to a hockey game, you should bring them along to Human Combat Chess!

 “Two houses, both alike in dignity”—except these guys are about as undignified as they come. See, there were two sets of twins separated years ago. And now, one Antipholus searches the world over for his missing twin (and missing parents), while his servant Dromio tags along looking for his long lost brother too. And these long lost brothers are somehow in love with a set of sisters. Did I mention that both sets of brothers are identical twins? Yeah, it’s that kind of play. One of Shakespeare’s earliest (and most fun) comedies gets a Circus-world twist.

Is there anything more fulfilling than finally getting your house truly, deeply clean? We may never know because The Clean House is a side-splitting comedy about a cleaning lady who’d rather perfect her stand-up routine than clean the house. As she spends her days not cleaning, she befriends her boss’s sister—who lives only to clean. Toss in a love triangle and some sibling rivalries and you get a whimsical and moving portrait of humanity, reminding us that the messes and disappointments of life can be the most unexpectedly fulfilling times of all.

All’s Well That Ends Well explores how we can grow up under pressure. In this play, we find Helena, a poor orphan, in love with Bertram, the son of a count. When Helena saves the life of the King of France, he grants her permission to marry whomever she chooses, and she chooses Bertram. Unfortunately, Bertram thinks Helena is beneath him, and abruptly leaves her. What follows is a “problem play,” a story of forgiveness, grace, and learning to have humility as we mature which is as messy and beautiful as a life well lived.
