Now Playing – Cyrano de Bergerac - by EDMOND ROSTAND, adapted and directed by JOSEPH HAJ.  A swashbuckling romance.  Cyrano de Bergerac is the full package: he’s a poet, playwright and consummate swordsman. The only thing standing in the way of declaring his love for Roxane is his grotesquely large nose. When Roxane confides that she’s fallen for a handsome young cadet named Christian, Cyrano takes him under his wing, adds brains to his beauty, and through Christian expresses his own feelings to Roxane without her suspecting a thing. With wit, wordplay and rousing passion, Cyrano de Bergerac is a heroic comedy for the ages.  Running March 16 through May 5th.  Click Here for Tickets or call the Box Office at 612-377-2444.

A whip-smart comedy with a sharp edge, Cry it Out takes an honest look at being home with a baby, the power of female friendship, the dilemma of going back to work, and the effect class has on parenthood in America.  Running April 12th through May 12th at the Yellow Tree Theatre in Osseo.  Click Here for Tickets or call the Box Office at 763-493-8733.

May 3 & 4, 2019 - Moonshadow - An Evening of Cat Stevens by Michael Monroe - Minnesota's own Emmy Award-winning acoustic tunesmith, Michael Monroe, performs an evening of music by the tremendously popular British singer-songwriter. In the '70s, Michael Monroe looked like Cat Stevens, performed Cat tunes and even wanted to be him!  Stevens, whose music remains relevant five decades later said, ”Music can be healing... for what looks like a gigantic divide in this world, I feel I can point a way toward our common humanity again." Monroe shares this viewpoint and feels Cat's tunes are especially timely today.  Cat Stevens “had rare ability to combine the strength, fragility, and sometimes mystery of his highly personal compositions,” said the LA Times.  Michael Monroe has performed his original music for five decades. His hand-crafted Seaton guitars are made of 200 year-old reclaimed wood from the bottom of Lake Superior.  These “works of art,” his rich vocals and crystal/bamboo flutes showcase his signature mellifluous sound. Expect the best of Cat with songs like "Wild World," "Peace Train," "Father & Son," "Hard Headed Woman," "Where Do The Children Play," "Can’t Keep It In" and of course, "Moonshadow."  Be a part of this LIVE CONCERT RECORDING!  Get tickets at ChanhassenDT.com or call the Box Office at 952-934-1525.

Chanhassen Dinner Theatres’ renowned summer theatre camp program, CHAN DT MUSICAL THEATRE CAMP, returns this summer with exciting new themes for youths and teens.  Since 1994, over 11,000 kids and teens have learned about the magic of musical theatre as only Chanhassen can do it. This educational camp program is also terrific summertime fun. Kids and teens, ages eight to eighteen, are given opportunities to explore a wide spectrum of musical theatre components including voice, movement, costumes, scenery, stage combat, improv and more -- all taught by professional members of the Chanhassen acting company, designers and choreographers making the CDT student theatre experience rise above other offered theatre camp programs.  Camp sessions are available throughout the summer months for both half and full day, week-long sessions. This makes the perfect gift for grandchildren who love musical theatre or are looking to make new friends and boost confidence. To register or receive more info, call the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres’ box office at 952-934-1525 or go online to www.chanhassendt.com to watch a video and learn more.
