Looking to meet other theater artists?
New to town?
Bored on a Monday night?

Monday Night Mingles is a casual way to get better connected to the theater scene in Minneapolis. Get a drink, order in food, participate in a round of collaborator speed dating, talk about your fringe script, be thoroughly weird without upsetting the muggles.

Stick around after for a changing series of events. See below for the line-up!

January 8th:  A reading of Under, a new play by Rachel Teagle. Celeste and her moody teenage daughter don’t see eye to eye, and that’s before the mole people emerged from the ground and kidnapped all surface dwellers into the darkness. A comedy about empathy but mostly about mole people. Directed by Daisuke Kawachi.

January 15th: PWYC Performance of Glowing Ember’s “The Maids”.  More info coming soon.

January 22nd: Some of the best songs are stories.  What better pairing than a night of music and storytelling?  “Music and Stories” alternates the original music of Sullivan Fox with stories provided by some of the best local storytellers, performers & writers, all sharing their perspectives on relationships.  Admission is free!  90 minute show with a short intermission.  Adult themes.

January 29th: The first public reading of a new play by Tim Wick. “Ursa Major” is a horror/western that tells the story of a young woman looking to find the bear that killed her father.

February 5th: Game Night!  I’ve just gotten the Labyrinth board game; come help me try it out!

February 12th: Reading of new play “Diner” by Maureen L. Bourgeois, with discussion and talk back led by Sophie Peyton.
