Presented by The Minnesota Shakespeare Company and Actors Theater of Minnesota, William Saroyan’s sparkling The Time of Your Life won both the 1940 Drama Critics Award and the Pulitzer Prize. The play is set in 1939 San Francisco at Nicki’s Saloon and Entertainment Palace — a waterfront cabaret catering to a population of eccentrics, drifters, lovers, immigrants, and young hopefuls. San Francisco Bay’s shipping industry is stirring, transforming through pre-war unionization, and military anticipation. Rollicking music of the 1930s, played by a live band, gives atmosphere and rhythm to a cast of thousands. Mikel Clifford directs.

Dame Edna Everage is probably the most gifted and talented woman in the world today: housewife, investigative journalist, social anthropologist, talk show host, swami, childrens book illustrator, spin doctor, Megastar, and Icon. With Olivia Newton-John, Kylie Minogue and Nicole Kidman, she is one of a remarkable succession of female stars to emerge from Australia.

When Michael Walters first donned the “wisteria” coif and rhinestone glasses in early 2001, he never dreamed he would still be performing the Character today - not to mention gaining the blessing of Dame Edna’s original creator, Barry Humphries or having the honor of appearing with Mr. Humphries at a special event on his Birthday in 2010. Walters says he was equally surprised when he discovered that producers all over the world would be eager to present his impeccable impersonation.

Flanagan is dead, but don’t be sad because remembering his life is all about laughs! Back by popular demand, it’s Flanagan’s Wake, the hilarious, interactive Irish funeral. Come celebrate the life of our dear friend, Flanagan, by hoisting a pint and joining in on the tales that unfold.

Join the villagers of the beautiful Grapplin, County Sligo, Ireland, as they tell tales, sing songs and toast the memory of one of their own. Pay your respects to glowering Mother Flanagan and to the poor grieving fiancée, Fiona Finn. Listen to a eulogy written by County Sligo’s best-known writer, Mickey Finn, and tip a pint with Brian Ballybunion, himself a weaver of tales. Share memories of your own experiences and misadventures with dear, old Flanagan, or simply enjoy the stories and songs of the locals as they recall Flan’s life. Cross yourself with the blessings from St. Gregory’s parish priest, Father Damon Fitzgerald, or cross your fingers that local pagan Kathleen Mooney doesn’t cast a spell on you. Mayor Martin O’Doul will preside over the proceedings with an iron hand (and a parched throat) as he leads in grieving as only the Irish can.

Leslie Jordan in Show Pony

Get ready once again MINNESOTA! He’s baaack! Arriving at St. Paul’s CAMP BAR for a 5-show limited engagement, LSELIE JORDAN returns to Twin Cities territory with his very own special “night at the races,” one man show. As one of American pop culture’s most recognizable, enduring (and endearing) personalities, the diminutive dynamo rides back into town.

Galloping back in to St. Paul at CAMP BAR with his latest on-stage, autobiographical romp, “SHOW PONY”, LESLIE JORDAN, the delightful, Deep South Dandy saddles up for an evening of horse feathers hilarity! “SHOW PONY” is Jordan’s reflections on the never ending, relentless quest for sustainability and longevity in “La-La Land”; still having to pay your dues, life on the road and what it takes to truly stay relevant and in the race. In true thoroughbred form, he remains characteristically frank, charming, selfeffacing and wicked!

An admitted, inveterate name dropper, any Jordan show is peppered with those star encounters that seem to only happen to him as he continues to have projects literally fall into his lap that surround him with the biggest names in show business. From being banged on the conker with a frying pan by BETTY WHITE (BOSTON LEGAL) to trying to convince his director friend at the helm of the Oscar winning megahit, THE HELP that he’d be just as feasible in the EMMA STONE lead role as the now mega star was to being surrounded by an orgiastic collection of screen legends (JESSICA LANGE, ANGELA BASSETT, KATHY BATES) where getting his eyeballs carved out by a melon baller (AMERICAN HORROR STORY) triggered his natural instinct to cajole for more scene-stealing screen time, Jordan as always simply can’t and doesn’t hold back.!

*This is a very adult production with strong language and not for those offended by modern roast humor. *Must be 18+

The Comedy Roast of Mr. Scrooge combines the oldest traditions from comedy—savagely mocking someone—and the holidays—imbibing in one too many ‘nogs and telling everyone what you really think. All the classic, beloved characters from A Christmas Carol finally get their chance to give Scrooge what’s coming to him in words that Charles Dickens never even knew.

Starring some of the Twin Cities’ funniest, this irreverent and VERY adult show is the perfect anecdote for those who prefer a little more spice and a little less nice to their holidays. This ain’t your average Christmas Carol!

“I had the best of times! Tis a far, far funnier thing than I did!” — Charles Dickens

“Exceeded even my expectations!” — Pip

“It was so funny, I peed my knickers!” — Mrs. Dickens
