Performance Options

The Improvised Shakespeare Co.

Not many Shakespearean productions start off with the audience hollering suggestions to the actors, but without these the Improvised Shakespeare Co. doesn’t have a show. With their pentameters iambic and their thous in place, the players depict power struggles, mixed-up identities, elven meddlers, and thrilling sword fights all while matching one of the Bard’s styles: tragedy, comedy, history, or space opera. The troupe got its start in Chicago’s iO Theater and was named Ensemble of the Year by the Chicago Improv Foundation.<p>

Valentine’s Day Comedy Special for Lovers…?

Pat Hazell and Karen Morgan cast a quirky light on romance in time for Valentine’s Day. One of Seinfeld’s original writers, a regular performer on the Tonight Show, and a contributing commentator on NPR, Hazel is a favorite of the corporate comedy circuit and has had his own one-man show, The Wonder Bread Years, on PBS. Morgan’s gentle Georgian drawl, meanwhile, has been heard on Nick at Nite, on NBC, and in an one-hour special on SiriusXM satellite radio, where she talks about modern motherdom.<p>

Sheldon Theatre of Performing Arts

At the turn of the 20th century, Red Wing businessman Theodore B. Sheldon decided that a portion of his estate should be bestowed on his home city for the public benefit. Four years later in 1904, the opulent T. B. Sheldon Memorial Auditorium opened its doors to the era’s traveling shows and Impressionist painters. Within thirty years, however, the stock market had crashed, the medium of film was growing, and the theater had to adapt. The Sheldon was converted into a cinema in 1936, and while it remained operational for the next few decades, its glory began to fade. Luckily, a group of concerned citizens stepped in, determined to return the venue to its original splendor. Today, the building has been fully restored to its 1904 design, although ghosts have been politely asked to leave.
