Description: It’s a story so well-known it scarcely needs an introduction, yet surprisingly the Guthrie has produced it just twice before. Set in Verona, where the rival houses of Capulet and Montague have had a long-standing feud, Romeo and Juliet is Shakespeare’s famous tragedy of star-crossed lovers, filled with all the passion of young love. Underscored by ingenious wit and astonishing beauty, the play pits the bitterness of resentment against the intensity of romance.

Description: A well-woven story of redemption set against a backdrop as American as apple pie makes The Music Man an indisputable classic. Fast-talking con-man Harold Hill creates fanfare in River City, Iowa, when he convinces the town’s parents to pony up for uniforms, instruments, and more for a children’s band he’s going to lead. But there’s one catch: he knows next to nothing about music. Planning to make a speedy departure with money-in-hand before River City gets to the bottom of his plot, Harold is waylaid by an unexpected connection with the town’s young librarian. With a sweeping, unforgettable score, The Music Man asks all of us what we’d be willing to stick around and fight for.

Description: Jeremiah and Vanessa Gamble, the creative team behind Kingdom Undone, and Til Death: A Marriage Musical, present their newest labor of love, Sam’s Son, a Prohibition-era Americana musical loosely inspired by the biblical story of Samson. While this musical is not that story specifically, it is inspired by themes in the original story– purity, hypocrisy, judgment, and liberation. Jeremiah says, “I saw that the Prohibition era echoed those same themes and has striking parallels with our country today.” St. Paul’s tainted bootlegging history is not lost on the authors. Their unique performance venue is Art House North, a 100+ year old church in the West 7th neighborhood of St. Paul, and home to their theater company, Bucket Brigade. The show will take place on both levels of the church, the upper level holding much of the action, while the downstairs lobby is transformed into a speakeasy serving German pretzels and draft root beer. SYNOPSIS: Gifted with unnatural strength, Sam Jr. wants to accomplish great things, but his reverend father seeks to shelter him from the wide world. When a Prohibition agent comes digging for secrets in the town of Goode, Sam and his father get caught up in a tangled mission of truth, where lies get revealed at great cost.
