Every Brilliant Thing – by Duncan Macmillan & Jonny Donahoe
4 Performances – January 18-21 at 7 PM
Performed by Greg Pragel. Directed by Cody Estle

“Ice cream.” “Water fights.” “Peeing in the ocean and nobody knows.” A boy’s handwritten list to cheer up his despondent mom becomes a surprisingly funny and poignant ode to humanity. The story follows a narrator who takes audiences on a transcendent and tender coming-of-age journey that reminds us to pay attention to life’s smallest joys—and to each other.

Tickets $20 | Dinner & Table Add-Ons Available

White Rabbit, Red Rabbit – by Nassim Soleimanpour
One Night Only – March 13 at 7 PM
Performed by Noah Simon

With no rehearsal, no director, a different actor each night, and a script waiting in a sealed envelope on stage, internationally acclaimed “White Rabbit Red Rabbit”, by Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour, is an audacious theatrical experiment and a potent reminder of the transgressive and transformative power of theatre.

Scarecrow: A Solo Play – Written & Performed by Heidi Armbruster
One Night Only – March 23 at 7 PM

A big-city actress lands back at her family’s Wisconsin dairy farm to grieve herself back to life. But can she ever make enough meatloaf to feel a sense of purpose now that her most important person is gone? A look at resilience and renewal. And Hallmark movies. Broadway’s Heidi Armbruster pens and performs a rip-roaringly hilarious and unbelievably touching one-woman journey of roller coasters, kittens, and cows.
