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!

November 13th: Book of the Month Club! Variety and storytelling show based around classic authors and books.  This month: Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and the Dirk Gently, Holistic Detective novels.

November 20th: Script reading and talk back hosted by Sophie Peyton! New script, “The Flashlight Zone” by Michael Weingartner. The Flashlight Zone is an experiment in Flash Theater – twenty short science fiction plays performed in under an hour. These plays take a look at strange futures and the ways that we in the present hold onto our humanity in the face of a rapidly changing world. Aliens and Robots and Time Travel abound, but so too do questions of love, identity, and purpose.

November 27th: Monday night performance of Romeo and Juliet

December 4th: Game Night!  Board games in the lobby for all.

December 11th: Rev. Matt’s Monster Science Ensemble, Walk the Dinosaur. click here for more info
