Commonweal Theatre continues Fillmore/Houston County free nights


Mon, Apr 6th, 2015
Posted in Lanesboro Business Announcements

LANESBORO, MN — The Commonweal Theatre Company announces performance dates for its 2015 Free County Night Program. Theatre lovers living and/or working in Fillmore or Houston Counties are invited to attend Ibsen’s later masterpiece The Master Builder on Thursday, April 16; the exuberant musical tribute Woody Guthrie’s American Song on Thursday, May 7; the classic farce Charley’s Aunt on Thursday, June 25; the incredibly funny and uplifting Outside Mullingar on Thursday, September 17; and the beloved adventure of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe on Thursday, November 19.

Following the tradition of the past two seasons, the Commonweal is renewing its commitment to local charities through a “pay it forward” approach. As a non-profit, the Commonweal relies on generous donations from audiences and corporations to sustain programming; in turn, the theatre extends that generosity to the community five nights a year with the offer of free tickets. The intention is to remove any cost barrier for Commonweal’s closest neighbors to attend their local professional theatre. The 2015 Season will again take the Pay It Forward approach a step further and encourage patrons to contribute items to a social or service organization chosen based on specific themes of season productions. The opportunity to donate will be available for the entire run of each production, but primarily focuses on those patrons attending the complimentary performances.

Previous Pay It Forward events have been very successful. In 2014, the Commonweal collected a large variety of books on behalf of Southeastern Libraries Cooperating, specialty items for Neo-Natal Units of Rochester hospitals and more than 75 new art supplies during the run of Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and then some!), which were donated to the Mayo Clinic’s Eugenio Litta Children’s Hospital.

For the Commonweal’s first production of the season, The Master Builder, the partner charity is Habitat for Humanity. Donations of new and like-new small hand tools (hammers, saws, screwdrivers, etc.) and hardware supplies (nails, staples, hinges, screws, etc.) will be collected on behalf of the local chapter.

All performances begin at 7:30 p.m. and while admission is free of charge to residents and employees of Fillmore and Houston Counties, seating is limited and reservations are strongly recommended at least two weeks in advance. There is a limit of four tic .....
