By Scott Z. Burns (a premiere)

After Caitlin Gabriel survives a deadly shooting at her high school, she struggles to tell her story to her parents, the authorities, and anyone who will listen. But there are other narratives that gain purchase in the media and paint her in a different light. This bold and chilling play asks us to examine the truth and the lies that claim to heal us.

The Odd Couple (Female Version)

A Comedy by Neil Simon

7:30 p.m. May 31-June 3

Andreas Theatre

Made possible by the General Mills Gift Matching Program

Detailed schedule here.

Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon's hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of The Odd Couple.  Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit.  The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Constanzuela brothers. But the hilarity remains the same.

Tickets: $16 regular, $14 discounted (over 65, under 16 and groups of 15 or more) and $11 for current Minnesota State Mankato students.


The Mystery of Edwin Drood

A Musical by Rupert Holmes

7:30 p.m. June 14-17

Ted Paul Theatre

Made possible by anonymous donors

Detailed schedule here.

This wildly warm-hearted theatrical experience kicks off when the Music Hall Royale (a hilariously loony Victorian musical troupe) “puts on” its flamboyant rendition of an unfinished Dickens mystery in The Mystery of Edwin Drood.  The story itself deals with John Jasper, a Jekyll-and-Hyde choirmaster who is quite madly in love with his music student, the fair Miss Rosa Bud.  Now, Miss Bud is, in turn, engaged to Jasper’s nephew, young Edwin Drood.  Our title character disappears mysteriously one stormy Christmas Eve – but has Edwin Drood been murdered? And if so, then whodunnit?  You decide!

Tickets: $22 regular, $19 discounted (over 65, under 16 and groups of 15 or more) and $15 for current Minnesota State Mankato students.
