SOMETIMES STORIES CAN SAVE THE WORLD

Best enjoyed by AGES 7 & UP

“In most fairy tales, princesses are beautiful, dragons are terrifying, and stories are harmless. This isn’t most fairy tales.” When Princess Violet and her best friend Demetrius discover a forbidden book in a hidden room, they unknowingly release the evil Nybbas into their world. The two friends pair up with an ancient dragon to try and save their kingdom, but the wicked creature’s triumph or demise all depends on how the story is told. This enchanted tale by the Minneapolis-based, Newbery Winning author of The Girl Who Drank the Moon comes to life on our stage in an enthralling adventure about the power of stories to change the world.

Presented by Frank Theatre
  • Drama

A powerful play exploring British colonialism in southern Africa and the use of Christianity for cultural disruption.

Set in 1896 Rhodesia, a young girl whose father has passed away is to be traded, by her uncle, to an older man with ten wives in exchange for a number of goats. She escapes this forced marriage by taking refuge in the home of an African teacher in the Catholic church. In exchange, she is given a new name, forbidden to practice her traditional beliefs, required to wear clothing of the colonizers, and, eventually, is cut off from her family to prove her Christian faith. As tensions in the surrounding villages grow, THE CONVERT explores the struggle between tribal customs and the ways of the British settlers, between traditional African beliefs and the Christianity brought by the colonizers. As tensions rise in the nearby villages, resistance could mean death.

 “After producing ECLIPSED nearly a decade ago, we have been pursuing the rights for THE CONVERT and we couldn’t be more thrilled to embark on this adventure,” says director Wendy Knox. “In some ways, THE CONVERT is a very unFrank play: it’s a big, historical, realistic, three-act play! Thematically, however, it’s right up Frank’s alley. During auditions, I had two actors, who were unfamiliar with Frank’s work, ask why I was doing this play. I answered that I thought the play was an excellent exploration of the roots of white supremacy, and that the play had much to contribute to the larger conversation we are still having, and need to be having today.”

“The Convert is shown…to be a work considering questions of racial, political and religious identity and assimilation with a provocative intelligence …” —The Guardian

“Where do you belong? It’s a question that just about everyone has to face, sooner or later, in Danai Gurira’s The Convert. And the further we go, the more complex that question becomes. It’s a terrific play — a rich, thoughtful, carefully crafted piece..” —The Financial Times

Is it a comedy? A drama? An American fable? Well, it’s all of that — and more — because it’s a look into the unique mind of Hertel Daggett, a recluse who lives in a junk pile and talks to dead animals as the owner of an abandoned pet cemetery. But his monologues and philosophical musings are interrupted when a smarmy realtor uses Hertel’s ex-wife and long-lost mother in a plot to develop his beloved cemetery into a shopping mall.

“We’re all of us meant to be heroes”. Join us for the regional premiere of playwright Keith Bunin’s unforgettable tale of adventure, love, loss and redemption. Drawing on a vast array of influences from the Bible, to The Odyssey, to Shakespeare, The World Over masterfully speaks to the original beauty and goodness of the human person, while showing just how far we’ve fallen. At once wholly fantastical and profoundly truthful, Bunin never leaves us without humor or hope in this epic story of a man in search of his home. Adam believes he is the lost prince of Gildoray, but nobody else in the world believes that Gildoray even exists. Adam will journey the world over, battling monsters, enduring shipwrecks, and daring deeds of heroism, to search for his lost kingdom and save his people.

"THE WORLD OVER is exceeding wise: a profound, insightful, thought-provoking examination of the most fundamental aspects of our humanity.” -NYTheatre.com

Written by Jones Hope Wooten
Directed by Eric Morris

This touching comedy centers around five Southern women who became friends on their college swim team. The group sets aside a long weekend every August to recharge their relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives. The play begins 22 years after they graduate from college. "The Dixie Swim Club" focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce and aging) that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives in the second act, these friends, proving the enduring power of 'teamwork', rally around their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. It is really a study in friendship and how it grows and changes through the years. 

Jones Hope Wooten are the authors of “Golden Girls” and “Savannah Sipping Society”

Walker Commission

“A visceral embodiment of grief and loss combined with a fierce proclamation of the ecstasy of living.” —Montclair Local

One of dance/performance’s most astonishing experimental voices, Faye Driscoll wraps up her Walker-supported trilogy—Thank You For Comingwith a moving requiem on art, the body, loss, and human connectivity. Space builds on and diverges from Driscoll’s earlier works, beloved by audiences across the country, with “an exhilaratingly personal culmination of the series” (Artforum). The intimate new performance piece, presented within an immersive installation on the McGuire stage, is informed by art-historical imagery and emerges as a collaborative creation between the artist, her astute design collaborators, and the audience.

Contains mature content.

In conjunction with the performance, Driscoll will extend the conceptual underpinnings of her trilogy to the Walker’s Gallery 7. Faye Driscoll: Thank You For Coming (February 27–April 19, 2020), the artist’s first gallery installation, will combine objects, sound, and video to create an environment that invites and challenges us to become active makers and participants.

Directed by Kari Steinbach

Aviatrix Amelia Earhart, evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson, and author Agatha Christie each vanished mysteriously: Agatha disappeared for eleven days; Aimee disappeared for three weeks; and of course Amelia vanished completely. Vanishing Point, a musical comedy-fantasy, brings these three women together as they solve the mystery of their disappearances from their own lives. The show has a cast of three: the women play not only their central role but also each others’ mothers, husbands, friends, reporters, and so on.

See this incredible performance on 12 select dates between March 6 and 22, 2020 at the Black Box Theatre inside the Bloomington Center for the Arts at 1800 W Old Shakopee Road.

Vanishing Point is a production of The Chameleon Theatre Circle and is part of the 2019-2020 Performance Series presented by Bloomington Center for the Arts, a division of the City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department.

Written by Lauren Gunderson, Silent Sky takes place in the early twentieth century, when Henrietta Leavitt and a group of women “computers” pursued astronomical research at the Harvard Observatory under the supervision of a male scientist. Their work proved to be crucial to the development of the field. Henrietta herself had to balance her dedication to her work with the demands of her family, health challenges, and the possibility of personal relationships. The achievements and difficulties of a woman scientist in a challenging historical period combine in this thought-provoking and engaging play. Come listen to the music of the spheres!

In this dark film-noir tale, aging silent film queen, Norma Desmond, refuses to accept that her time in the limelight has finished. She lives as a recluse with the deranged beliefs that her stardom is as strong as ever.

The screenwriter believes he can manipulate her, but soon learns the difficulty of such a task. Furthermore, his ambivalence about their relationship, coupled with Norma’s demented unwillingness to let go, leads to some damaging consequences for both parties involved.

Starring William Holden, Gloria Swanson, and Erich von Stroheim (1950).

The trouble really begins when Marian’s heart beats a little faster for Professor Hill.
