The Most Magnificent Thing at Stages Theatre Company

StagesMagnificentThing2019April 27, 2019 at 10 a.m.
May 8 at 10 a.m.

Stages Theatre Company
1111 Mainstreet
Hopkins, MN 55343

The design process comes alive on our main stage this spring! A young girl has a wonderful idea. “She is going to make the most MAGNIFICENT thing! She knows just how it will look. She knows just how it will work. All she has to do is make it, and she makes things all the time. Easy-peasy!” But as the girl tries and fails, repeatedly, she finds invention is anything but easy. Working through her anger and frustration she “smoothes and wrenches and fiddles,” and she “twists and tweaks and fastens,” until she manages to get it just right. Our world premiere musical adaptation shows that it’s okay to make mistakes as we create, tinker and achieve. Click here for more information and to order tickets.

Matilda the Musical at Children's Theatre Company

7 p.m.

Children's Theatre Company
2400 3rd Avenue South
Minneapolis, MN 55404

Join us for this sensory-friendly performance of Matilda the Musical. Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, this is the story of Matilda. Her dreadful parents can't stand her. Her headmistress is a horrible, nasty, name-calling, life-sucking tyrant who puts kids in cupboards with nails and broken glass. This captivating girl-power romp revels in the anarchy of childhood. Celebrating the tenacity of the small, Matilda proves that the strength to be yourself (along with a little telekinetic power) will prevail at the end of the day. Click here for more information and to order tickets.

A limited number of volunteer seats are available for this performance. Volunteers welcome guests, hand out information from the AuSM resource table in the lobby, and often help with intermission activities. Volunteers are asked to arrive one hour prior to the show and are given a free ticket to watch. Click here to volunteer for this performance.
