When the little red truck from Missoula Children’s Theatre pulls into Faribault, it has everything it takes to mount a full-scale musical production of Hansel & Gretel… except the cast. That’s where the local children come in. On Monday they’re cast as characters. By Saturday, they’ve gained character – the kind that really counts. The Missoula Children’s Theatre proudly presents an original musical adaptation of the Brothers’ Grimm age-old tale of a journey, a secret and a grand adventure as Hansel and Gretel get lost in the deep, dark woods. They quickly find they’re not alone and they meet the Nasty Nasties, sweet little Wallybirds, Crafty Cooks and Gingerbred Men. There’s music and laughter and thrills and chills. So join the fun as Hansel and Gretel learn the secret of the Wildwood!

Presented by ILLUSION THEATER
THURSDAY, MARCH 14, 2013 at 7:30 pm – Adults $15, Students $9
For over 35 years, Minneapolis-based Illusion Theater has been using the power of live theater to catalyze personal and social change. People are still talking about the superb production of Willa Cather’s “My Antonia” that Illusion brought to the Newhall stage in 2011. This year they bring “Bill W. & Dr. Bob” a universal human story of the dangers of isolation and the healing power of fellowship. In 1929, famous New York stockbroker Bill Wilson crashes with the stock market and becomes a hopeless drunk. Dr. Bob Smith, a surgeon from Ohio, has also been an alcoholic for 30 years, ofter going into the operating room with a hangover. Through an astonishing series of events, Bill W. and Dr. Bob meet and form a relationship, helping to keep each other sober. “Bill W. and Dr. Bob” is an amazing and often amusing account of the two men who pioneered Alcoholics Anonymous, as well as the story of their wives, who founded Al Anon.
“A DOLL’S HOUSE”
Presented by COMMONWEAL THEATRE COMPANY
THURSDAY, MARCH 21, 2013 AT 7:30 PM – Adults $15, Students $9
The Commonweal Theatre Company of Lanesboro, Minnesota produces one of Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen’s plays each year and remains the only theatre company in North America with such a commitment. Known as the father of modern drama, Henrik Ibsen is considered one of the world’s greatest playwrights. His ability to turn revolutionary philosophical ideas into brilliant social dramas inspired the likes of other modern playwrights. This year, Commonweal takes Ibsen on tour with one of his most notable plays, A Doll’s House (1879). Controversial in its time, the drama criticizes the traditional roles of women and men in 19th Century marriage.
