Borealis Bards "The Little Prince"


  October 25-26-27th

This play/musical tells the

 story of a world-weary 

and disenchanted Aviator 

whose sputtering plane

 strands him in the Sahara 

Desert and a mysterious, 

regal "little man" who appears 

and asks him to "Please, 

sir, draw me a sheep." 

Triple Espresso


  November 5th

Triple Espresso tells the story of three guys whose bid for showbiz fame and fortune ended in 4-minutes of magnificent failure on national television. Hugh Butternut, Buzz Maxwell, and  Bobby Bean tell their rags-to-rags story earnestly, with hysterical results. Butternut is a musician, a vulnerable soul with a lounge lizard smile; Maxwell is an uncertain magician with an attitude; and Bean is an irrepressible, all-over-the-map entertainer with big dreams. The laughter is infectious and the comedy appeals to everyone from first graders to college students to baby-boomers to grandparents. 

Cantus "One Giant Leap"


 January 10th

One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind…”The moon, stars, and the tapestry of the night sky all are responsible for some of humanity’s oldest legends and mysteries. History is filled with stories of daring innovators who had the audacity to dream of one day conquering the sky. In One Giant Leap, Cantus explores and celebrates the allure of upward exploration, the triumph of the human spirit, and striving for excellence through innovation and technology.

James Sewell Ballet


January 31st  

James Sewell Ballet was founded in New York City by James Sewell and Sally Rousse and brought to Minnesota in 1993. Combining their expertise, vision and chutzpah they envisioned a close-knit company of dance artists willing to both challenge their physical limits and expand their notions about ballet. Over two decades later, critically acclaimed JSB performances move and delight audiences across the country. The embodiment of the original vision is a professional company of dancers performing innovative work that explores the technical boundaries of ballet. 

Church of Cash


February 28th  

Whether you are an ‘ol timer that grew up listening to Mr. Cash in your tractor or a young soldier driving your tank across the deserts of the Middle East with the Man in Black in your headphones, the Church of Cash will bring his music, with style and energy to fans everywhere. What the Church of Church has that no one else can match is their loyalty to the song and the message that Johnny left to all of us. The band merely keeps this word alive with a youthful spirit
that has entertained audiences completely.
