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.

  • Comedy

Ah, love. Young and gooey, explosive and fiery, brotherly, unrequited, enduring. A Midsummer Night’s Dream revels in the myriad ways we find to love one another and the lengths we go in order to build and protect our most precious relationships.

Often called “an almost perfect play,” Shakespeare’s comedy tumbles out of the city into a fantastical wilderness of moonlight and magic as lovers and would-be poets  – seeking  freedom, romance and inspiration – stumble upon the forest realm of the fairy king and queen. What follows is a fast-paced, hilarious and heartfelt adventure where ridiculous antics lead to magical moments in unexpected ways.

Presented by HATCH Dance & Poolboy
  • Dance

HATCH Dance joins City Pages’ 2017 Best New Band, Poolboy on stage for an evening of contemporary dance and alternative music July 5-8, 2018 at The Southern Theater. Featuring the world premiere of Isotope, an exploration of the shadow self through music and movement.

Melding modalities and approaches, Helen Hatch (choreographer) and Seth Conover (music) collaborate creating an interdisciplinary performance, bringing together artists from Minneapolis, and merging two worlds that rarely intersect. Featuring dancers Berit Ahlgren, Helen Hatch, Kacey Hauk, Anton LaMon, Jadyn Reddy and Christian Warner.

HATCH Dance is a contemporary dance company presenting the choreography of Helen Hatch. A graduate of the Ailey/Fordham BFA program in New York, Helen performed with Minnesota Dance Theatre from 2011-2017. Helen’s choreography has been presented at the Ailey Citigroup Theater, the 2011 Jacob’s Pillow Inside/Out Festival, 2014 MN Fringe Festival, and most recently at Minnesota Dance Theatre. In 2012, Minnesota Monthly named her one of their “10 Artists to Watch” stating that she “embod[ies] ballet’s tension between technique and emotion. In her own choreography, blending ballet with vigorous American movement, this edginess leaves you breathless.”

Poolboy is a slow-burning, atmospheric alternative band from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Their songs are hosts to entities they don't quite understand. In 2017, they were named City Pages' Best New Band. “The music is impressionistic like psych, though it’s more perturbed — odd and indistinct, it’s music that captivates regardless of how it’s categorized.”-Jerard Fagerberg, City Pages

  • Musical

It's 1957 and two rival gangs, the Jets and the Sharks, are prowling the streets of Manhattan's West Side. When Tony falls for Maria, the sister of a rival gang member, a rumble is planned. Like Romeo and Juliet they're caught in an ages-long feud with no escape, even as they pledge their love for each other. Through the genius of Bernstein and Sondheim, incomparable hits like "Maria," "Tonight," "Cool" and "I Feel Pretty" are merged with the greatest love story ever told in this larger-than-life musical.
