Theatre in the Round The Metromaniacs
 
In aristocratic Paris, poets are the rock stars of the day, and young people have gone métromanie (“crazy for poetry”). And Damis has developed a particularly severe case – he’s fallen in love with the work of a mysterious poetess. Plot twists, complications, and mistaken identities – all in rhymed verse – tumble to a happy ending in this new telling of a 1738 French farce.
 
   
C.S. Lewis Onstage Apr 27 - Apr 28, 2018  
Pantages Theatre C.S. Lewis Onstage
 
C.S. Lewis is most famous for writing the bestselling The Chronicles of Narnia fantasy series, but he was also well-known for his personal and public transition from non-believer to devout Christian. The one-man play The Most Reluctant Convert, adapted from Lewis' own thoughts and writings on the experience, stars award-winning actor Max McLean, who portrays the author as he endures the death of his mother, works through his complicated relationship with his father and walks the path from staunch atheist to one of the most influential Christian intellectuals of his day. After successful runs in New York, DC and Chicago, see the philosophical exploration the Chicago Sun-Times called "bristling, provocative, highly entertaining," when C.S. Lewis Onstage brings one of the past century's most interesting personalities to life on stage at the Pantages Theatre in Minneapolis.

Set in '60s Baltimore, this musical tells the story of lovable plus-sized teen Tracy Turnblad -- a social misfit who becomes a local celebrity by dancing on TV's Corny Collins Show. Tracy's love of dancing leads her to become an unlikely heroine, triumphing over both snotty teen queens and racial segregation. And she does it all without mussing a hair of her stylish 'do.
