All American Boys

April 29 - May 22, 2022 • Ages 10+

By Jody Drezner Alperin and Vicky Finney Crouch | Based on the book by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely | Directed by Theo Langason and Cody R. Braudt

The journey of two teen boys and a life-altering incident

Twin Cities Premiere!

“At once timely and timeless, funny and wickedly smart... about what it means to be a young man in America— across lines of race—and what it means to be a GOOD person in America—across lines of Everything.” – Jacqueline Woodson

The lives of two high-school boys, one black and one white, powerfully intersect after a violent act of racially motivated police brutality. Unfolding through the boys’ alternating perspectives, the story follows their journey as they grapple with the devastating impact of racism as it reverberates through their families, school and town. Stages Theatre Company and Capri Theater are proud to bring this important play, based on the award-winning book by Brendan Kiely and National Book Award winner and Ambassador of Children’s Literature, Jason Reynolds, to Twin Cities audiences.

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, he is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. But he’s not prepared for the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, who is determined to exercise control over the town’s youth. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges pins a father longing for the son he lost against a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.

To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated Top Forty score, augmented with dynamic new songs, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind.

Footloose first burst onto the silver screen in 1984 and proved to be one of the year’s most successful motion pictures. The soundtrack recording reached #1 on the Billboard charts, and went on to sell over 17 million copies worldwide, generating such Top Forty hits as its title song and “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” (both of which received Academy Award nominations), plus “Almost Paradise,” “Holding Out For A Hero,” and “I’m Free (Heaven Helps the Man).” With a screenplay and lyrics by Oscar winner Dean Pitchford, the story focused on young people, much like his previous, and wildly successful movie musical Fame.

Book by George C. Wolfe
Music by Jelly Roll Morton
Lyrics by Susan Birkenhead
Additional music and musical adaptation by Luther Henderson

Directed and Choreographed by Kelli Foster Warder
Music Supervision by Sanford Moore

Featuring Reese Britts and Andre Shoals

Born to a Creole family in turn-of-the-century New Orleans, Jelly Roll Morton was a classically trained pianist who was fascinated by the ragtime, blues and jazz sounds happening around him. From the back alleys of New Orleans to the dance halls of Chicago and the clubs of New York, the Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning JELLY'S LAST JAM tells the troubled story of the self-proclaimed inventor of jazz with spectacular dance breaks and a smokin’ jazz score.

Theater Latté Da is grateful for the generosity of our Production Sponsors, David Feroe and Linda Svitak.

Handsome, clever, and rich Emma Woodhouse wants nothing more than to share her talents with the world.  What better way than her own TV show?  Showrunner George Knightley and research assistant Harriet Smith do their best to keep Emma on track, but that doesn't prevent Austen's feisty heroine from giving her opinion on the love lives of Austen's other beloved characters, from the Bennets to the Dashwoods and everyone in between.

Aethem Theatre is thrilled to present this whip-smart and rollicking world premiere play that takes audiences on a whirlwind tour through Jane Austen's beloved catalogue with joy and laughter.

Written and Directed by Kayla Hambek. Stage Management by Amara Gerlach. Costume Design by Olivia Schwab. Lighting Design by Peter Gustafson. Featuring Gabriella Abbott, Raúl Arámbula, Maddie Ripperger, Lois Estell, Nissa Nordland, Eva Gemlo, Kayla Dvorak Feld, Noah Hynick, and Brendan Veerman.
