  • Drama

Wayward Theatre Company is committed to bringing work outside of traditional theatre settings, allowing audiences to engage with texts and spaces in new and exciting ways. Next up on Wayward’s site-specific docket is Shakespeare’s brilliant tragedy; Macbeth, playing at the historic James J. Hill House.

As a follow-up to our extended, sold-out run of Hamlet in the spring of 2018, Macbeth will be the company’s most ambitious endeavor to date. Working side by side in partnership with the Minnesota Historical Society, Wayward will utilize this historic landmark in ways patrons of the arts and of the Hill House have yet to experience.

Macbeth, considered by many to be Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy, brings audiences deep into the minds of an ambitious couple, hellbent on power and position. A supernatural prophecy calls a would-be king and queen to action and as they work to realize their greatest dreams, their world turns suddenly into a living nightmare.

NOTE: There are staggered start times of 7:00 PM and 7:30 PM for this production.

This innovative staging of the thoroughly fun and engaging piece is guaranteed to motivate joyful S-M-I-L-E-S on all the audiences faces.

Music Theatre International describes the musical as the:

Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.

A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.

Internationally acclaimed theatre artists, Ping Chong and UMTAD Assistant Professor Talvin Wilks will create the fourth iteration of  Collidescope: Adventures in Pre and Post Racial America  in collaboration with University of Minnesota undergraduate and graduate students.  Originally conceived in 2014 as a response to the unjust murder of Trayvon Martin, the debate around Stand Your Ground Laws and the seemingly perpetual police violence against members of the African American community, Collidescope offers a collision course view of the legacy behind the history of racial violence, racism and social injustice in America. As seen through the gaze of an intergalactic time traveler, the investigation of this peculiar “nature” moves back and forth in historical time, specifically with a focus on the American psyche represented by contemplations of noted historical and contemporary writers and political figures. Utilizing archival documents and source texts, fictional and non-fictional, Collidescope engages the audience in a discourse interrogating the motives and justifications behind this legacy.  This fourth installment will inject unique events from Minnesota’s history into the greater picture of race, racism and citizenship, to connect the dots between America’s troubled racial history and its ongoing consequences.

VIOLENT DELIGHTS
Created by Penelope Parsons-Lord
Based on the works of William Shakespeare

“Through some of Shakespeare’s most famous works, and unsettling renditions of old songs, we confront and grapple with the psyches that populate the nexus of passion, violence, humour and play.”
- Sydney Fringe Festival

In Violent Delights, we explore Shakespeare's obsession with the worst of human behavior as it lives side-by-side with love and passion. Eight actors take audiences on a journey through pleasure, pain, sexuality, and violence using some of the Bard’s most well-known works. At turns comic and sinister, tragic and raucous, Violent Delights is bloody good fun.

Violent Delights will be performed throughout the Twin Cities as ‘pop-up’ performances between October 18 - November 2. 

All performances are pay-what-you-can!

One mom. One daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you'll never forget!

ABBA's hits tell the hilarious story of a young woman's search for her birth father. This sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother's past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.

The story-telling magic of ABBA's timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship, creating an unforgettable show. A large cast, non-stop laughs and explosive dance numbers combine to make Mamma Mia! a guaranteed smash hit!

A tea cup sits on a pink saucer that has the words "feed your head" engraved in gold script. The cup is filled with steaming hot tea.  A pat of butter carved into a profile of a person's head floats in the tea. Surrounding the cup and saucer are: a silver spoon filled with sugar; an ornate, blue and black, sugar bowl with its lid ajar; a small white saucer holding square pats of butter, and Queen of Hearts playing card. This all sits on a white linen tablecloth.

THREE NIGHTS ONLY.  October 31 - November 2.

Don’t miss this unique and theatrical event. 

Feed Your Head is an immersive experience inspired by Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Tea Party. Audience members will attend a curious “orientation” as new employees of the fictitious Best Butter Company. 

Step into Alice’s shoes and encounter a host of curious characters – like, Bunny, an unwavering Best Butter Company optimist and your orientation guide. Be enchanted by a topsy-turvy “financial presentation” by The Accountant (sleight-of-hand master, Steven Paul Carlson). Savor butter from Rochdale Farms, bread from Baker’s Field, and scent design by the Olfactory Scent Studio. This is not a horror event. Feed Your Head runs October 31st through November 2nd with three performances a night. Preview night is Wednesday, October 30th. 2019.
