Touring live theatre group to perform in Harmony

On Thursday, May 8, The Animal Engine Theatre Company will present two public performances in Harmony, Minn. The play “ Petunia and Chicken” will first be performed at 1 p.m. at Fillmore Central High School’s Stage Gym & later at 7:30 p.m. at the Jem Theatre on Main Ave., Harmony.

All are invited to attend either performance of this live play. After the 1 o’clock performance the actors will meet with those interested for a theater workshop study session.

The New York-based Animal Engine Theatre Company will perform in Harmony as part of a 13-community tour around the Midwest. A two-person play created and performed by Carrie Brown and Karim Muasher, “Petunia and Chicken” borrows text, characters, and story from all three of the novels in Willa Cather’s Prairie Trilogy (My Antonia, O Pioneers!, and Song of the Lark) to create a fun and moving work of historical fiction which is an epic story of love and loss as big as the prairie itself. Petunia, an indomitable immigrant girl determined to tame the wild land around her, meets Chicken, a right-smart boy with dreams of great adventures. As the joys of their youth give way to the harsh realities of adulthood, they struggle to stay together. The story is brought to life with imagination, movement and song. Audiences have described it as “ fun, clever, and charming” as well as “simple and touching.”

“Petunia and Chicken” has won a number of awards including the 2013 Cincinnati Fringe Festival Artists’ Pick of the Fringe, the 2013 League of Cincinnati Theaters Best Overall, and the 2014 Frigid New York Festival Favorite Award.

Sponsors Fillmore Central Schools and the Harmony Arts Board have collaborated to bring this talented group to Harmony. Partial funding for the event is made possible by the Southeast Minnesota Arts Council’s Opportunity Grant Program.
