King Lear
After years of ruling Britain in peace, a respected King Lear decides to relinquish his crown and divide his kingdom among his three daughters. But when their love and loyalty falter, so does Lear’s sanity. This play is a gripping portrait of fathers, daughters and a once-mighty ruler thwarted by his own hubris and betrayed by a vanishing mind.

TA-DA! Saturday Puppet Shows for Kids
Tickets: $7 suggested donation ($2 for Powderhorn and Phillips residents)
Our associate artists and friends bring stories from around the world to life to inspire and delight children of all ages. Some performances are in English; others are in Spanish. We find that children love puppetry in any language.
Come for the show and stay for the family Make-n-Take activities in our classroom at 11 a.m. each Saturday. These puppet-making workshops are based on the show of the day and led by accomplished puppeteers. Registration for workshops is recommended and can be made in advance at the 10 a.m. show or by calling 612-721-2535 the previous week. The workshop price is $5 for children and $3 for adults.

Anna in the Tropics
Florida, 1929: a Cuban-American family eagerly awaits the arrival of a new lector to read aloud to their cigar factory workers. When he introduces them to Anna Karenina, a hot and humid Tampa factory starts to mirror the scandalous Russian aristocracy of Tolstoy’s classic. Love, revenge, passion and tragedy abound in this award-winning drama.

Safe at Home
Directed by Mixed Blood Artistic Director Jack Reuler and featuring 18 actors, this nine-scene thriller uses baseball to examine flawed U.S. immigration policies, racial politics, America’s obsession with celebrity and the collision of personal ethics with massive entertainment and media dollars.
For 90 minutes, audience members will travel in small groups throughout the St. Paul Saints’ stadium, encountering scenes in a locker room, press box, luxury suite, men’s room and more. They will be voyeurs into the intimate conversations of umpires, managers, mascots, politicians, fans, vendors and players—performed by a multi-national cast—all while venturing into stadium spaces rarely visited by the public.
