  • Drama

The world premiere of “What Guys Really Want” features true, heartfelt stories of masculinity told from the male perspective and portrayed through a series of gripping vignettes.

The narrow definition of masculinity in our society creates a tremendous challenge for boys and men to be their true, authentic selves. Boys and men are inundated with negative messages from the media, movies, music, peers and family, as to how they should act and behave. Often these expectations contradict their true feelings.

This production raises awareness and creates a conversation about how masculinity is shaped and formed amongst boys and men — too often in an unhealthy way — and how we as a community can change that.

As with all productions, Chain Reaction Theatre Project is partnering with local social services organizations to spark discussion and inspire community action around the issues central to the play.

CREATED and DIRECTED by Shelley Smith with many contributing writers.

FEATURING: Naved Baysudee, Emily Carlson, Justin Cervantes, Elizabeth Efteland, Nolan Henningson, Mai See Lee, Eric Marinus, Jordan Mitchell and Evan Slack.

This season's collection of One Acts will delight audiences with a variety of short plays, comedies, and dramas. Talented students will present five unique one-act productions, including our competition piece for the Minnesota State High School League's Section 6AA One Act Play Festival on January 22 and 23, 2019 at Edina High School.

Over 60 Hopkins students serve in a variety of roles - as actors, stage managers, and production crew - sharing their passion and skills in the art of theater in an up-close and intimate environment. The five plays span a variety of themes and topics, probing into what makes us human, how we relate to each other, what it means to live in a democracy, and how we react to violent events. The MSHSL competition piece adds unique challenges, because of a ten-minute set-up time restriction during which all technical aspects for the play must be completed. "The one act play is all about economy and focus." says Royal Productions director Natalie Foster. "While the number of characters in a one act vary, the protagonist's storyline dominates and their journey is the focal point. The format really encourages these students to dive deep into the craft in a relatively short period of time." "I am amazed by the range and depth of these students, and I'm proud of all that they've accomplished," says Ms. Foster. "I hope that our community will come experience it for themselves."

The story begins with a motionless tableau, the actors frozen in mid-action, their faces conjuring an ancient frieze. At the snap of fingers, the spell is broken and the statues spring to life. And so, this classic story of civil disobedience unfolds. Director Meagan Kedrowski adapts Sophocles’ timeless tragedy with help from the Ensembles. Kedrowski’s “thoughtful approach juxtaposes the rituals of fate and sacrifice against the wounded family dynamic at the heart of this play. The results are powerful.” (Star Tribune)

When an American basketball team travels to Beijing for an exhibition game in 1989, the drama goes deeper than the strain between countries. For two men with a past and one teen with a future, the game is a chance to stake their moment in history and claim personal victories off the court. Tensions rise right up to the final buzzer as history collides with the action in the stadium. Rapid-fire comedy meets poignant reflection in this perceptive new play inspired by the life of playwright Lauren Yee’s father. Contains mature language.

From the groundbreaking, gender-bending Split Britches theater company comes a political satire that explores aging, anxiety and “doomsday” theory through conversation and collaboration with an array of elders and artists. Named after the buried or forgotten munitions of war known as UXOs, this unique production combines darkly playful Dr. Strangelove-inspired performance with a daring new protocol for public discussion — the Situation Room. As the performers contemplate where UXOs are located, how much energy they contain and what would happen if they were uncovered, they suggest that this potentially dangerous ammo may also be a metaphor for our unexplored desires.

From the basement to the barn, your beloved Church Basement Ladies are back and getting busy with life outside the kitchen. After the last of the hotdish is served, the coffee pot is emptied, and the Jello molds are put away, these steadfast, sturdy women head to their farms, peel off their good girdles, and get on with their daily chores. In between picking eggs, milking cows, and dusting knickknacks, they congregate with some of the other lovable folks who inhabit this rural community: Earl, who delivers the mail up and down Rural Route One; Fergus, the hired man; and Tillie, who chronicles the action for the Fish County Weekly.

With plenty of crazy antics, loads of fresh laughs, and spanking new original songs, YOU SMELL BARN celebrates rural life in the 1950’s. And, at the center of it all, are your favorite Church Basement Ladies. Whether you’ve seen several versions, or are new to the world of the basement, the 7th in the Church Basement Ladies series is a musical treat for all.

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend at his charming converted French farmhouse with his side-dish, a Parisian model named Suzanne. The first order of business: get his wife, Jacqueline, on a train to see her mother. Second order of business: pick best friend Robert up from the train station because when you’re dating a model it’s hard to keep it a secret, so why bother…

In an effort to impress his paramour, Bernard has hired a Cordon Bleu cook to prepare a flawless dinner. Of course, even the best-laid plans often go awry. Which is what happens when Jacqueline decides to skip mother’s house after all. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as each of the characters are forced to improvise at breakneck speed.

FLOWERS FOR THE ROOM | a new musical

book by Jessica Lind Peterson
lyrics by Blake Thomas
music by Blake Thomas and Matt Riehle
directed by Jason Peterson
musical direction by Matt Riele

FEBRUARY 1st – MARCH 3rd, 2019

Allison and Jake have only just begun their new lives when a tragic accident changes everything. Trapped inside her own mind, Allison (Jessica Lind Peterson) hears the world around her, but the world cannot hear her. Julie (Norah Long), a recently divorced social worker and reluctant medium, attempts to convince Allison to hold on. Magic meets mundane as the unconscious mind collides with the reality of hospital life. As days turn to weeks, Jake (Zachary Stofer) loses hope of getting his wife back and both must decide whether to continue the fight, or to finally let each other go. With a story by award-winning playwright Jessica Lind Peterson (String, Miracle on Christmas Lake) and a gorgeous original score by contemporary folk sensation Blake Thomas, Flowers for the Room is a stunning new musical about human resilience and the power of choice.
