Mark Twain wrote: "There are five kinds of actresses: bad actresses, fair actresses, good actresses, great actresses–and then there is Sarah Bernhardt." It's 1899 in Paris, and legendary diva Sarah Bernhardt needs a crowd-pleaser to save her debt-ridden theatre company. So she decides to ditch the dresses and tackle her most ambitious role yet: Hamlet! The city watches to see whether this bold plan will be her legacy or folly. High comedy and human drama collide in this vivid account of a 19th century woman issuing a challenge to the system. And it's as timely as ever.

Set in the 1590s, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as “The Bard.” When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing, and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical.

Collide Theatrical Presents SKOL!

When a mysterious illness befalls a Viking clan, a young woman is called to fulfill her destiny as a great warrior leader in a battle for the cure with the Christian army. Inspired by the Norse gods, her journey tests the boundaries of her faith, shakes the ground of the relationships with the men dearest in her life, and causes her to question the definition of female strength. 


Inspired by recent evidence of the grave of a female Viking holding the accoutrements and injury marks of a prestigious warrior, the discovery cast a new light on gender roles in Scandinavian history. Collide tells the story through its signature blend of high-energy dance styles and explores this fascinating story with an original pop rock/rap score composed by Twin Cities musician Mike Michel (Bill Mike Band), with lyrics by vocalists Rush Benson (Ordway) and Katie Gearty (Dakota Jazz Club). 


Created by Collide Artistic Director, Regina Peluso, the production stars Renee Guittar and Jarod Boltjes.
