In this insightful and probing serio-comic play, aspiring avante-garde artist Jack is creating socially conscious sculptures and paintings.  Her boyfriend, Hugh, is an investment banker. Opposites attract. Jack's free spirit brings a breath of fresh air into Hugh's more staid, up-scale life. And Hugh's financial generosity gives Jack a bit more freedom than most of her other artist friends. Or is Hugh's money a sugar coating covering the challenges inherent in this passionate relationship? 

Adult admission is $10, while senior/staff/student tickets will be $5. Season tickets are available for a discount. Please call 952-358-8884 to make reservations or email at

The Normandale Community College Department of Theatre will have its final production of the academic year when The Tempest  runs from April 29-May 2. The following is a more detailed description of The Tempest.

The Tempest: Considered to be Shakespeare's final play, The Tempest takes place on a small island on a single day in which the magician Prospero creates a magnificent storm to shipwreck his estranged brother and confront their past. Full of romance and comedy, savagery and forgiveness, and fantastical creatures with magical qualities, this play is an exploration of how to conquer our own hearts and minds while allowing others the freedom to do the same.
