Commonweal Theatre Company announces 2014 season


Fri, Nov 22nd, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

LANESBORO, Minn. — In 2014, the Commonweal Theatre Company will embark on season 26 and lay the groundwork for the next 25 years of producing quality theatre as southeastern Minnesota’s premiere professional resident theatre company. “With 25 seasons under our belt”, says Commonweal Executive Director Hal Cropp, “we’re excited to offer plays in 2014 that will thrill, provoke, and entertain our audiences, both old friends and new. We will continue to showcase the company’s versatility, which has long been the hallmark of the Commonweal. So, all in all, I believe Season 26 will have something for everyone.”

The 17th Annual Ibsen Festival in April will open Commonweal’s 2014 season with Henrik Ibsen’s epic drama, Brand – the latest in a series of world premiere adaptations by acclaimed playwright Jeffrey Hatcher. In his blinding search for a new vision of humanity, fundamentalist pastor Brand holds himself and his followers to the rigid ideal of “all or nothing.” As his faith is tested again and again, Brand goes the distance, clinging to his beliefs and risking everything on his journey.

Commonweal’s summer repertory offers a double-bill of laughs and adventure, starting in the spring with the hilarious Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring. A classic American comedy, where beneath the grace and lace of spinster sisters living in Brooklyn, there lies a sinister secret that sets in motion an escapade of mayhem and hilarity! Side by side with this fun comedy is an adventure based on Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days. After a simple hand-shake, Victorian superhero Phileas Fogg agrees to an outrageous wager to travel the entire globe, and every step puts his fortune – and life – in danger. Action, adventure, and fun for the whole family!

In the fall, Commonweal will bring to the stage a witty and charming romance surrounding a mystery at Sidley Park estate. Arcadia by Tom Stoppard is a masterpiece where vibrant and brilliant minds gush over passions for everything from costume parties to chaos theory. This Tony Award winning play is sure to be a new favorite for Commonweal audiences.

Rounding out the 26th Season will be a madcap and crazy comedy where three actors tell Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and then some!) in only 90 minutes! Audiences will be laughing all the way into the New Year!

The best deal to see all 5 shows is through a Season .....
