    By Michele Riml; Directed by Mary M. Finnerty. Performed by: Park Square Theatre. Your favorite married couple is back in the perfect, laugh-a-minute comedy.

    All the Way - OC show

    Regional Premiere by Robert Schenkkan, directed by Ron Peluso. Performed by: History Theatre. 1963. The day that JFK was assassinated in Dallas, Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) became the 37th President of the United States. The country was in shock and yet the business of the nation continued. The top priority was the Civil Rights Act, and in this Tony Award-winning Broadway play, LBJ (played by Pearce Bunting), Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (Shawn Hamilton) and Minnesota’s Hubert H. Humphrey (Andrew Wheeler) take on a Congress divided on this hot button matter of policy. The KKK bombed black churches, Freedom Riders disappeared into the night, George Wallace held a tight grip on Alabama, and Bobby Kennedy posed a challenge to LBJ in the coming election and tensions ran high. “With cinematic sweep with an eye toward teasing out our parallels to our current gridlock, Schenkkan traces the first year of LBJ’s presidency.” – Entertainment Weekly. “…jaw dropping political drama.” – Variety. Tix: Reduced to $20 for ASL/AD/OC patrons (regular $26-52, student $15); phone: 651-292-4323. The accessible entrance is on the east side of the building off Cedar Street; the theatre has six spaces for wheelchairs, plus companion seats; hearing enhancement devices and Braille or large print playbills are available.

    The Music Man - ASL show

    Book, Lyrics & Music by Meredith Willson, Directed by Angela Timbermann, Music Director: Anita Ruth, Choreographer: Michael Gruber. Performed by: Artistry. Fast-talking con-man Harold Hill creates fanfare in River City, Iowa, when he convinces the town’s parents to pony up for uniforms, instruments, and more for a children’s band he’s going to lead. But there’s one catch: he knows next to nothing about music. Planning to make a speedy departure with money-in-hand before River City gets to the bottom of his plot, Harold is waylaid by an unexpected connection with the town’s young librarian. With a sweeping, unforgettable score, this well-woven story of redemption set against a backdrop as American as apple pie asks all of us what we’d be willing to stick around and fight for. Featuring Michael Gruber as Harold Hill. Tix: Reduced to $29; regular $41, Senior (62+) $36, Next Generations (30 and under) $12; phone: 952-563-8575; info@artistrymn.org.
