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!

October 2nd: Reading of Night of the Living Ted, an original play by John Youker.  Every zombie apocalypse starts somewhere. This is the story of the interns, scientists, A.I., and undead janitor that doomed us all.

October 16th: Production Managers’ Meet Up, organized by Technical Tools of the Trade.  We’ll be bringing in Sara Shives of the Jungle Theater (and many other gigs across the globe!) and Karen Quisenberry of the Minnesota Opera to speak briefly about their work, their careers and their organizations. Q&As will follow all sessions, with open mingling in the relaxed environment of the Phoenix Theater lobby! Come meet and learn from your fellow arts workers and employers!
