“The boy stared at the star and felt a pang in his heart, a tingling in his spine, a whisper in his ear.” This winter we continue our collaboration with Escalate Dance for a ninth season in a dance-inspired adaptation of Peter H. Reynolds’ tribute to “off-the-path” thinking. From the award-winning author of The Dot and Ish comes an encouraging tale of self-determination, creativity and hope. What is inspiration? Where can your experiences take you? How do you chart your way? Join us young and old alike for a lively journey through the constellations to find your own North Star.

The hit musical comedy that's become a Twin Cities Valentine's tradition returns IN-PERSON for its 10th season! That’s right, we’re celebrating ten years of this “touchingly beautiful… heartrending and hilarious” show (Say Entirely, theater blog). 'Til Death is the perfect Valentine's date night in the perfect venue. "One of the best spots in Saint Paul to cozy up for Valentine’s” (@visitsaintpaul)

’Til Death gives couples a chance to go on an actual, much needed date– to laugh together, cry together and be reminded why they got into this whole beautiful mess in the first place. That’s ultimately what ’Til Death celebrates: the beauty, strength and richness of resilient love.

’Til Death follows the story of Ethan and Olivia, a couple in marital midlife crisis who find themselves stuck in a remote cabin with Leslie and Freddie, eccentric newlyweds who are "perfectly perfect for each other.”
