THE BAREBONES HALLOWEEN SHOW
As Muck Would Have It - Oct 27, 2007 - Oct 31, 2007

The show begins with the arrival of spirits at a carnival on the Mississippi River bank. Audiences are guided down a ghostly trail to an old river town. The arrival of Huck and Jim (from Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn) causes a town controversy from which the two have to flee. From there we follow their adventures down the river encountering wildlife, spirits, tourists and river history.

This year’s Halloween Show is located at the base of the North Entrance to Hidden Falls Park. The entrance is off of Mississippi River Boulevard, roughly 1/4 mile south of the Ford Parkway Bridge. On site parking is available.

Frankenstein Incarnate: The Passions of Mary Shelley by Anne Bertram, * World Premiere *
Directed by Carin Bratlie -

Theatre Unbound
October 26-November 17, 2007 at Neighborhood House in the Paul and Sheila Wellstone Center,
179 Robie Street E in St. Paul

“Frankenstein Incarnate was written especially for our company,” says Unbound Artistic Director Stacey Poirier. “We started out wanting to adapt Frankenstein for an all-female cast, but the more we learned about the life of its author, Mary Shelley, the more we saw how her experience overlapped and intertwined with the story that made her famous. The play brings a new spark of electricity to the story by reanimating the real life horror that inspired it.”

November 8-18 at Bryant Lake Bowl Theater

This regional premiere takes a hilarious look at the American traditions of happiness (and sadness) as five actors and one cellist tell the story of Tilly, a melancholy bank teller, who has a way of making everyone fall madly in love with her.

mixes the absurdity of Pirandello and Fellini and the edgy prettiness of Edna St. Vincent Millay. Off-beat, lyrical, and just a little bit nutty... Chicago Times
