Wicked Wenches Parody Troupe presents Clue: A Parody to Die For!
Every person in this house has the perfect motive for murder!

Join us for an evening of mystery, murder, and seduction set in the 1950s.
On a dark and stormy night, nine strangers gather at a mysterious dinner party catered by four familiar staff and hosted by an elusive Mr. Boddy. The appearance of three seemingly uninvited guests is sure to spice things up in this live action remake of the beloved board game!

Can you guess who-done-it? Is it the shrink with the lead pipe in the billiard room? Or the widow with the rope in the conservatory? And who would want to kill the cook? Dinner wasn't that bad!

Dress up as your favorite Clue character and take pictures in our selfie both for more fun!

This who-done-it Amuseical incorporates a variety of dance styles including Vaudville, Aerial Arts, Pole Dance, Belly Dance, and More!

Cash and Credit for Ticket Purchases and Concessions (snacks & sodas & ADULT BEVERAGES!!!)! Thank you for your continuing support of Minnsky Theatre and The Wicked Wenches Cabaret!

Vaudeville is adult comedy dance theater and is 18+ as there will be adult themes!

Flatten the curve, fire up the imagination! An online, on-demand audio puppetry experience intertwining stories of the crossing of the Red Sea and the Trail of Tears.

Opening Saturday, March 21 at 7 pm (for World Puppetry Day) continuing through May 1

Wherever you are and whenever you want during this run, tune in to hear:

A 3500 year-old Jewish woman recounts her crossing of the Red Sea as a 6-year-old Cherokee boy bears witness to the Trail of Tears. Together, they fill in parts of history that often go missing. With the music by Greg Herriges, slide across centuries and continents to travel the rich emotional landscape from struggle to triumph. Directed by artist/activist Laurie Witzkowski and featuring images of the puppets, by photographer Bruce Silcox, puppetry artists Shari Aronson and Chris Griffith (Cherokee tribal member) weave a story inspired by their own ancestries.

Recommended for adults and youth ages 9+ (Through the Narrows features intense subject matter and verbal descriptions of historically accurate violence)

Presented by The Local Music Scene
  • Improv
  • Cabaret/variety

The Mourning Wood performs THE LOCAL MUSIC.
Again & Again improvises SCENEs inspired by the lyrics.

Every month, The Local Music Scene invites a local musical guest to perform their original songs, and local improvisers to create improvised comedic scenes inspired by the lyrics.
Produced and hosted by Philip Simondet.

The Mourning Wood
The Mourning Wood is a new band that performs Horror-Folk & comedy covers. Born out of the minds of an eclectic group of outspoken nerds, the band found their name when Aiden the Kilted Wonder took a walk in the woods, saw a tree, and it made him sad.
You can expect to hear comedic folk originals, dark traditional music, and awkward covers with a strong lean towards socially aware topics.
They can be found performing at Convergence, MN Renaissance Festival, and various other venues around the Twin Cities.

Again & Again
Again & Again is John Eisenrich, Samantha Baker Harris, and Eric Heiberg (Chico Carlucci). Together, they have more than 40 years of improvising experience between them. They focus on bringing sincerity to their otherwise, ridiculous characters and scenes. But above all else, they're fun, and they like you too. Come find us.
