Powerful and poetic, Skeleton Crew is an emotionally bracing and relevant story of working class survival amidst the eroding American dream. Running January 31 Through March 1, 2020, at YellowTree Theatre, 320 5th Ave. SE, Osseo, MN.  For tickets call 763-493-8733 or click here to order online.

March 6 - 8, 2020 - Park Center Senior High Musical: URINETOWN - Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is an hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America's greatest art forms.  In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!  Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the "comedic romp" into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.  Urinetown is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.  https://www.mtishows.com7300 Brooklyn Blvd, Brooklyn Park, MN 55443.  March 6, 7, 2020 @ 7:00 p.m., March 8, 2020 @ 3:00 p.m., March 12, 13, 14, 2020 @ 7:00 p.m.  Tickets are $8 adults, $6 students/seniors, 763-569-7673 ticket hotline http://www.pcshmusical.com
