I Come from Arizona  
Children's Theatre Company I Come from Arizona
 
Gabi Castillo, a bright, 14-year-old Mexican-American girl living on the South Side of Chicago, is accepted into a very different, elite high school. Through her Global Perspectives class, she learns secrets about her past and her parents, discovers her own inherited strength, and begins to understand what it means to take risks. In today's world of immigration raids and Dreamers, fear and uncertainty, Gabi inspires a modern-day lesson in bravery, courage, and finding power in what seems like a powerless situation.
 
   
Last Stop on Market Street  
Children's Theatre Company Last Stop on Market Street
 
Six-year-old CJ is (reluctantly) staying with his (extremely over-the-top) Nana, in a world considerably different from the one he's used to (his phone and tablet). The disagreeable (and, let's just admit it, whiny) child is dragged on a bus ride that's loud and gritty and weird. Guided by his veritable force-of-nature Nana, CJ travels a little closer to his roots and sees that things are not always what they seem. This is one wild and crazy, hip-hop, eclectic, heart-thumpin', toe-tappin' joy ride.
 
   
Mary Poppins  
Bloomington Center for the Arts Mary Poppins
 
Beloved governess Mary Poppins will visit Artistry Theater this fall, delighting audience members of all ages. This classic, set in Edwardian London, tells the story of Jane and Michael Banks - two kids who wish for a "kinder, sweeter" nanny to rescue them from the revolving door of strict caretakers. When Mary Poppins descends (literally) on their home, Jane and Michael get what they wished for, and so much more. Featuring all the classic tunes, chimney sweeps, and spoons-full-of- sugar you know and love, Mary Poppins is equally perfect for a nostalgic date night for two and an all-family theater outing. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Cirque du Soleil: Corteo Opens Nov 8  
Target Center Cirque du Soleil: Corteo
 
Clowns have gotten a bad rap, pop culture-wise, in the last few years. But the lovable character at the center of Cirque du Soleil: Corteo is definitely not It. Instead, he's a beloved entertainer who imagines his own funeral procession in the form of a festive and lavish parade, accompanied by flying angels. As he passes from this life, the comedian's reverie blends past reality with heavenly fantasy, creating a spellbinding world brought to life under the bigtop by dazzling costumes and sets. The drama of the real lives of traveling performers merges with the surreal to create Cirque du Soleil's trademark visuals and a mysterious journey you can't forget. This amazing show is packed with Cirque's seemingly impossible acrobatics, "for a display of human physicality that defies the laws of physics" (LA Weekly), as well as lyrical and playful music that will fill the Target Center in Minneapolis.
 
   
Elf The Musical Opens Dec 5  
Ordway Center for the Performing Arts Elf The Musical
 
Take a hilarious hit movie, add in some seriously impressive song-and-dance numbers, and tie a big Broadway bow around it, and you've got the sweet family treat known as Elf the Musical. Fasten your sleigh belts for a fun ride that follows the story of Buddy, who as a little boy mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole, where he's raised as an elf. He grows up unaware that he's an actual human, but his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities eventually force him to face the truth. With Santa's permission, Buddy sets off on a journey to New York to find his birth father, discover his true identity and help the city remember the true meaning of Christmas -- and this sparkling holiday show, coming to the stage of St. Paul's Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, will no doubt do the same for you and yours.

His tale takes her on an extraordinary adventure to the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of the Sugar Plum Fairy. Experience the beautiful choreography of Loyce Houlton danced by Minnesota Dance Theatre company members, guests artists and children of the School, with the brilliant music of Tchaikovsky played by the 44-piece Nutcracker Orchestra and led by Philip Brunelle.
