Performances will be at our home away from home, Dreamland Arts, in Saint Paul. Dates are Oct 19-21 and 26-28.

We are working on selection of 2 additional productions and will also participate once again in FastFest, sponsored by the Minnesota Association of Community Theaters.

This season's productions of "The Skin of Our Teeth" and "Heart Burns" played to rave reviews. Heart Burns won several awards at the statewide MACTFest Festival.

We are starting to gear up for our MACTFest weekend and then our summer blockbuster play!

We could use some support to fund the summer show, Wild! by local playwright Ann Frances Gerstner.

We are trying to raise $7,500 dollars to fuel our expansion and intend for ticket sales to keep us going into next season.

For every $100 contribution, you will receive one ticket to each of our spring and summer shows.

For a $250 contribution, you will receive 2 tickets to both spring/summer productions.

Here is a review of our fall show. Thanks for any help.

Hey folks, we just completed a successful run of "The Skin of Our Teeth" at the Howard Conn Theater in Minneaolis! Expenses were high (mostly space rental), but we survived.

We are requesting your help for mounting our next production, an evening of one act plays in February/March. One of them will be entered in a statewide competition.

A gift of any size is appreciated. Would you consider a small donation to help us keep presenting quality, affordable theater?
