Is she trying to steal Woolsey's legacy now that she cannot have his love, or might she truly possess a gift the world can’t understand?

If Violet has her way, the doctors will cut those memories out of Catharine’s brain forever. “…Williams at the peak of his talent…his most devastating statement about corruption in the world.” –New York Times

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.

"Nevermore" blurs the line between fact and fiction, exploring the events that shaped Poe's character and career, and giving powerful expression to Poe's words "all that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream." We are pleased to continue our October tradition of combining outstanding theatrical entertainment with an excellent meal, right in the Mantorville Opera House. Advanced ticket purchases are absolutely required, so Omar and his team know how many and what kind of meals to make. Early Bird tickets are only $30 for dinner and show. Regular tickets are $35 and reduced rate tickets are $33. "Nevermore..." is produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (www.playscripts.com) The Mantorville Theatre Company presentation of "Nevermore - The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe" is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

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.

Description: If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab?

Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

Description: This Shakespeare comedy, "Much Ado About Nothing" is about two couples who's love stories are intertwined from the very beginning of the play. One story follows the formal, romantic relationship between two people. In order for these two people to wind up together it will take the involvement of their friends in the proposal. The second, follows the story of a more sarcastic couple who pretends that they do not want anything to do with one another for the majority of the show. They even go to the extent of saying that they never want to be married, until their friends help them to realize that they secretly have a love for each other. In the end, will this wind up as a traditional Shakespeare show with love and death, or just love?

Also visiting are Edward and Midge whose romantic assertions are likewise thrown into the mix. As the list of romantic associations grow so does the list of potential suspects when Cristow is shot dead. Nearly everyone has a motive but only one of them did the deed.
