Desperate, Helen’s family writes to the Perkins Institute and a young, inexperienced Annie Sullivan shows up on their doorstep. Through persistence, love and sheer stubbornness, Annie breaks through Helen’s wall of silence and teaches her to communicate, finally bringing her into the world at last. A radiant and emotionally-gripping story that will make you believe in miracles! 

Miracle on Christmas Lake

by Jessica Lind Peterson
directed by Jason Peterson
November 9th – December 30th

Jessica Lind Peterson’s original holiday comedy is back and sillier than ever! Soap opera star Colin Avery returns to his Minnesota roots to take over Christmas Lake Community Theater after his father dies. Colin's new wife Tess – a city girl with zero tolerance for mosquitoes – comes along for the ride only to find the theater on the verge of bankruptcy. After losing the rights to It’s a Wonderful Life, they race to come up with another play. With piano tuner and Little House fanatic Neil Gunderson, and lizard-loving massage therapist Martha Knutson as the only cast members, hilarity ensues as this unlikely bunch scramble to save the theater. There’s true love and off-key Christmas carols, lutefisk and naked pot bellies, and best of all, unexpected miracles happen.  A ridiculous and heart-warming holiday comedy guaranteed to tickle the funny bone of lutefisk-eating Minnesotans everywhere!  “A madcap holiday farce!” – Twin Cities Daily Planet

February 1st ­– March 3rd

College sweethearts Allison and Jake have only just begun their new lives as husband and wife when a tragic accident changes everything. Confined to a hospital bed and trapped inside a body that won’t cooperate, Allison hears the world around her, but the world cannot hear her. As weeks turn to months, Jake loses hope of getting his wife back and he is forced to chose between his marriage vows and the life he imagined for himself. Is the love they had before the accident enough to tackle the uncertainty of what lies ahead? One foot in each world, both must decide whether to continue the fight, or to finally let each other go. With a story by award-winning playwright Jessica Lind Peterson and a gorgeous original score by contemporary folk sensation Blake Thomas, Flowers for the Room is a stunning new musical about human resilience and the power of choice.

Cry it Out

by Molly Smith Metzler
director Angela Timberman

April 12 - May 12

Cooped up on maternity leave and starved for conversation, neighbors Jessie and Lina become fast friends when they begin daily coffee dates in their adjoining backyards while their newborns nap. Though from vastly different financial backgrounds, they bond over their ferocious love for their babies and the monumental demands of new motherhood. When a stranger from a nearby mansion drops by to ask if his wife who is “having a hard time” can join their coffee klatch, their fearsome two-some is infiltrated with shocking results. A whip-smart comedy with a sharp edge, Cry it Out takes an honest look at being home with a baby, the power of female friendship, the dilemma of going back to work, and the effect class has on parenthood in America.
