Applause. Applause. Live theater is back, including at the Minnetonka Theatre, one of the premier high school programs in the Midwest. Make plans this month and in February for chances to see talented performers and crew doing what they do best—presenting live theatrical productions.
The Minnesota State One Act Competition is slated for January 28, and the theater will present Annie Baker’s play Circle Mirror Transformation. The story follows the lives of a handful of small-town Vermont residents, who gather weekly at the local community center for an acting class. Hearts are quietly torn apart, and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won. It reverberates with seduction and sorrow until the play’s final devastatingly gentle scene.
Cue up February 18–27 for Clue, live on stage in the Studio Theatre. Murder and blackmail are on the menu when six guests assemble for an unforgettable night. Who did it, with what and where? Was it Mrs. Peacock in the study with the candlestick? How about Colonel Mustard in the library with the wrench? Was Miss Scarlet up to no good? Have some giggles, and keep guessing throughout the performance, inspired by the classic board game.
