Project Success has more great theater opportunities for MPS middle school students! This time, we are in partnership with History Theatre, Theater Latte Da, Katha Dance Theatre, Full Circle Theater Company, and Guthrie Theater! These opportunities are 100% free of charge and if students and families need transportation to a performance, Project Success can provide that. Registration is simple and can be done here! Our upcoming theater opportunities include:
Christmas of Swing at the History Theatre: Friday, 11/19 at 7:30pm. Xmas Eve 1944. In this all-new reimagining of History Theatre’s holiday classic, the Andrews Sisters open their mailbag, and letters from men and women serving overseas dance their way into the USO show and into our hearts. These powerful and enlightening stories from people of diverse backgrounds remind us of the importance of family, service, and of a nation united for the common good.
Shaamya – Of Equality in partnership with Katha Dance Theatre at Park Square Theatre: Sunday, 11/21 at 2pm. Inspired by the poetry of writer and activist Kazi Nazrul Islam (1899-1976), Of Equality uses dance, music, and spoken word to attempt to draw parallels between the experiences of today’s communities of color and those expressed by Nazrul Islam back in the early 20th century. Note: The performance will include ASL interpretation as well as a post-show discussion.
A Christmas Carol at Guthrie Theater: Six performances between 11/19 and 12/2. In this Charles Dickens’ beloved classic, a miserly and miserable man, Ebenezer Scrooge greets each Christmas with “Bah! Humbug!” until he is visited one Christmas Eve by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future. This world-premiere adaptation stays faithful to the text and invites audiences to experience the wonder of the holiday season through all-new scenery, costumes, props, lighting, and sound.
Elf the Musical, Jr. at Stages Theatre: Sunday, 12/26 at 1pm. After being raised as a would-be elf at the North Pole, Buddy the Elf's enormous size and poor toy-making abilities causes him to embark on a journey to discover who he really is. Through his heart-felt determination to win over his new family, Buddy shows us all the true meaning of Christmas. This heartfelt and hilarious musical is filled with memorable music and lots of laughs for the whole family to enjoy.
