Children’s Theatre Company (CTC) is proud to
announce the world premiere production of
The playwright met with and interviewed 25 people who were children in the city of Austin, Minnesota during the P-9 Strike against Hormel in the 1980s to gather their stories and perspectives. The play explores how pivotal events that occurred during the strike affected relationships inside and between three families.
While five kids dream of space camp, tennis teams, and out-of-state college, they find their families and community suddenly divided by picket lines and opposing agendas. This is the story of having the strength to stand up for what you believe in, the challenge that comes in disagreeing with those you love, and the humor that helps keep friendships alive.
“My wish is for our audiences to leave the theatre inspired to collaborate with their neighbors for the good of their communities,” stated the director Will Davis.
The show is recommended for everyone ages 9 and up. Ticket prices range from $15 through $71 (subject to change) with ACT Pass tickets for $5. For more information, visit us online at www.childrenstheatre.org or call the ticket office at 612-874-0400.
