Based on the popular 1988 MGM film, “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave and with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical musical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (“The Full Monty”) and was nominated for a staggering eleven Tony Awards.

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

Shrek the Musical
Book and Lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire; Music by Jeanine Tesori
June 26-July 1
Detailed schedule here.
Ted Paul Theatre
Made possible by Orthopaedic & Fracture Clinic and Farrish Johnson Law Office

"Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek ..." And thus begins the musical tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and feisty Princess Fiona who resists her own rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero: Shrek!

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

 

The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940
By John Bishop
July 11-14
Detailed schedule here.
Andreas Theatre
Made possible by TRIO Programs

As a composer, lyricist, actors and director prepare a production, bodies start to drop in plain sight, knives spring out of nowhere, masked figures drag their victims behind swiveling bookcases, and accusing fingers point in all directions. The murder mystery does get solved—but not before the audience has been treated to a sidesplitting good time.

Tickets: $16 regular; $14 for seniors ages 65 and older, children under 16 and groups of 15 or more; and $11 for Minnesota State Mankato students.
