Cinderella  
Children's Theatre Company Cinderella
 
. Originally created by CTC, this panto style musical mixes together the heart-warming story of Cinderella (played by new Acting Company member Rajane Katurah) and a Victorian Christmas party with lavish period costumes, grandiose sets and holiday carols, with pop culture references, shameless physical comedy, audience participation, and gut-busting gags. Freshly updated with new pop songs, you'll jeer at the deliciously dysfunctional stepmother (played by CTC Company Member Autumn Ness) and stepsisters (played by Ashawnti Sakina Ford and Kimberly Richardson) as much as you'll cheer for Cinderella in her quest to attend the magnificent ball that will change her world.

Backed by a band known as the "Ladies in Waiting," the all-woman ensemble crosses the spectrum of modern-day pop with a soundtrack that has stormed to the top of the global charts. Don't miss this entertaining show when it reigns at the Ordway in St. Paul on its way to Broadway.

The Viking and The Gazelle  
Mixed Blood Theatre The Viking and The Gazelle
 
The Viking and The Gazelle is a romantic comedy about the budding courtship of a Twin Cities couple with the role of race thrust upon their relationship. African-American Michelle was born and raised on Chicago's Southside, while white Robert is from the Minneapolis suburb of Hopkins. Sparks fly in the hearts of the new couple, yet a happy ending is no foregone conclusion. With a cast of seven characters, Michelle and Robert find love's battlefield surprisingly fraught with the biases of society, including with their trusted confidants; not to mention Robert's deep dark secret. After rave reviews and enthralled audiences during this year's Minnesota Fringe Festival, The Waterfront Productions is remounting a re-envisioned version of The Viking and the Gazelle at Mixed Blood Theatre. Written by Dr. William and Suzanne Bengtson, and directed by Sha Cage and E.G. Bailey, this play delivers one of the most important messages of the holiday season - love and acceptance.
   
what if  
The Lab Theater what if
 
what if is the proposition to look at ourselves, our world in different ways. Letting our imaginations take flight and carry us to where we did not think possible. Or didn't know was there. Or would prefer not to look at. What if we could see through another's eyes? What would that look like? What if the mirror was held up to nature, but instead of seeing what's reflected we saw what was inside? What would it say? What if we could? What if we did? So ... what if? From the company that brought you The Prodigious Life of Clara S., Speechless and Refugia. Featuring Sarah Agnew, Steven Epp and Nathan Keepers. Directed by Dominique Serrand. Talk backs on Sunday, December 15 and Thursday, December 19.
