Pop Goes the Noggin is a dark comedy that speaks to the special needs in all of us.

A new play by Michele Lepsche, directed by Kari Steinbach

It’s 1972, American Pie rules the airwaves, Vito Corleone rules the cinema, Nixon rules politics and Nurse Triplet rules Ward 1 at Loon Lake State hospital. Yet, nothing rules the ladies of Ward 1 except thoughts of cheese curds, Neil Diamond and the Minnesota State Fair. Pop Goes the Noggin follows the journey of these determined ladies as they set out on their quest to fulfill their furtive dreams.

Written by Michele Lepsche and directed by Kari Steinbach, the cast includes Greta Grosch, Ellen Apel, Catherine Justice, Tyus Beeson, Elizabeth Efteland, Katherine J. Lee, Taylor Evans and Isabel Middleton-Watts. Design by C. Andrew Mayer, Shirley Harvey, Kurt Jung and Katie Phillips, with Sarah Salisbury as stage manager.

The Golden Record Project

7:30 pm
Runs 70 minutes

The Sandbox
3109 E 42nd St Minneapolis, MN 55406

Presented by Sandbox Theatre
  • Drama
  • Experimental

If you could send a message out to the universe just to tell them our world was here, what would you say? What would you share?

Join Sandbox for an intimate aural and visual event celebrating NASA’s Voyager Golden Records. The Golden Record Project is part art installation, part performance, part interactive museum. It’s a search for connection, a hopeful call to other worlds, and a declaration that we are here.

In 1977, a NASA project led by astronomer Carl Sagan, and writer/producer Ann Druyan, launched time capsule discs they called Golden Records into deep space aboard two NASA Voyager satellites. President Jimmy Carter called them, “a present from a small, distant world, a token of our sounds, our science, our images, our music, our thoughts and our feelings. We are attempting to survive our time so we may live into yours.”

In Sandbox’s Golden Record Project, a multi-disciplinary collection of twin cities artists, along with our audiences, will explore the cultural, historical and current significance of the original Golden Records, and through this exploration, create a new record of our own.

How has our world changed? What would you send out today?

About Us: BARd Shakes is a local performance group started in 2015 by students from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and inspired by the Back Room Shakespeare Project in Chicago. BARd Shakes puts its own special twist on Shakespeare's classics and brings them alive in the unconventional and intimate settings of bars around the Twin Cities! In the past, we have tackled such shows as, Twelfth Night, Romeo and Juliet, Henry IV, Part 1, and A Midsummer Night's Dream to name a few. Our motto: "Locally-Source Actors, Crafted Brews, Refreshing Drama."
