We are very excited to be presenting a new adaptation by Steven LaVigne of the most famous of all of Sherlock Holmes' cases! Calling all mystery-lovers!! You don't want to miss this!! (And if you like Sherlockian trivia, please visit our Facebook page for weekly quizzes!)
During the past few (theater-less) months, we have featured not only actors that have performed with us since our start in 2017, but also directors, techies, and every play of our past four seasons. This will be a continuing feature - with the most recent roster of actors being featured will be from our upcoming production of "HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES". If you like this feature and want to see your own star shining brightly on our Facebook page and webpage - think about auditioning for us in the future, or volunteering to work on our tech crew!
LIVE theater is once again alive and well! We hope you will join us for the rest of our 2021 season with an original adaptation of Sherlock Holmes' most famous mystery, "HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES" AND our Board of Directors is hard at work deciding our 2022 season!! You will be notified as soon as we decide!!! (and thank you AGAIN for supporting our theater!!!)
If you have had a chance to drive by Lake Nokomis Presbyterian Church on 46th Street and 17th Avenue (our normal performing space), you will have noticed lots and lots of construction this past summer. The construction on the school is now complete, and they have been wonderful neighbors to our theater group! During our "down time" this winter, we hope to re-cover the stage floor and the steps in front of the stage.
"SHAKESPEARE UNDER THE STARS" was only a concept that we were hoping would come to pass in the age of COVID - we are VERY happy to announce that our FIRST outdoor show done late June/early July 2021 was enthusiastically accepted by rousing crowds each night! Please check out our Facebook page for more pix of the show!
We pride ourselves on attracting and welcoming new performers to each show we do! We also love our actor/techie friends who continue to make us a wonderful theater family! in 2019 (our last full theater season),we had over 22 NEW faces appearing in our three mainstage productions!! And - as always - we welcome our talented and enthusiastic returning players! Please stay tuned for info on our 2022 season - FOUR SHOWS, including our first musical!

Our 2021 summer show, Shakespeare's "TWELFTH NIGHT", had to be postponed (twice) from 2020 - due to COVID restrictions, and we felt very fortunate to have a wonderful outdoor performing space next to Lake Nokomis Neighborhood Center become available so we could - at last! - perform this play!! Thanks SO much to the staff at Nokomis Park, as well as the staff at Lake Nokomis Presbyterian Church, who allowed us to perform indoors during a rainy performance! We look forward to performing back at our "home" at Lake
Nokomis Presbyterian Church this fall - and will continue to follow COVID restrictions during our rehearsals and performances.
We currently have a Youtube video to view of two scenes of our production of "TWELFTH NIGHT" both on our Facebook page and webpage. We are currently working on a few short preview with actors for "HOUND OFTHE BASKERVILLES"! We also have numerous short videos for viewing on our Facebook page - including Antonio the Pirate and Feste the fool from "TWELFTH NIGHT". We did numerous short ZOOM films in 2020, including three for 2020 FASTFest, which went virtual due to COVID, and will continue to work on these for our own future mini-ZOOM festival!! STAY TUNED!!!
