    The Royal Family - AD/ASL show

    Free Sensory Tour Available at 10:30 AM. By George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber, directed by Rachel Chavkin. Performed by Guthrie Theater. For the Cavendishes, the “Royal Family” of Broadway, the show must go on. Set in 1920s Manhattan, this American classic (loosely based on the legendary Barrymore family) centers on three generations of actors, each at different stages in their careers. From an aging grande dame to a promising ingénue, together they confront a choice between secure, yet dull domesticity and an erratic, egocentric yet potentially fulfilling life on the stage. A brilliant, fast-paced valentine to the Great White Way. Tix: DISCOUNT: Reduced to $20 for AD/ASL, $25 for Captioning (regular $15-62); phone: 612-377-2224.

    We Are Proud to Present - AD/ASL/OC show

    By Jackie Sibblies Drury, directed by Taibi Magar. Performed by Guthrie Theater. Going off-script can sometimes be the best way to tell a story. Three black and three white American actors rehearse a stage presentation about a genocide in 1900s colonial Africa. Questions arise when they realize that summarizing the event doesn’t do justice to the people it affected, and while they struggle to understand both sides, they make connections between the past they are portraying and the issues confronting them in the present. Equal parts comedy and drama, We Are Proud to Present sparks powerful conversations about race, nationality, ethics, exploitation and sovereignty, while exposing the issues both in humorous moments of failed communication and striking moments with haunting artistic discoveries. Every Dowling Studio performance includes a discussion component. Tix: $9 general admission; phone: 612-377-2224. Website: http://www.guthrietheater.org/visit/access_services or www.guthrietheater.org/plays_events/plays/we_are_proud_present.

    7:30 pm - 10:00 pm at Guthrie Theater, Dowling Studio, 818 2nd St. S., Minneapolis.

    On the Line - ASL show

    Regional Premiere by Joe Roland, directed by Kathy Hendrickson. Performed by: North Hennepin Community College Theatre.

Lines are drawn, crossed, and double-crossed in this raw, powerful and often hilarious story about loyalty, love and the crippling power of unbending principles.

Contains strong language. Interpreters: Bernadette Halverson (CI/CT, NAD IV) and Becky Fulwider. Tix: $10; senior, student, child, matinees $7. Phone: 763-493-0543. Email: mricci@nhcc.edu.
