Straw Hat Players summer season

Posted on June 22, 2017

Gooseberry Park Players follow Straw Hat with youth production

Minnesota State University Moorhead’s Straw Hat Players Summer Theatre opened its 54th season with Forbidden Broadway’s Greatest Hits. The show is a musical revue, but there’s a twist. In this production, some of Broadway’s most legendary hits (Annie, Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Les Miserables and others) are poked fun at, but with plenty of affection. The musical ran May 30 to June 2 on the Gaede Stage.

The season continues with a sequel to last year’s Church Basement Ladies. The sequel features high school students at the Luther League Banquet, a church-sponsored Missionary Night and the rise and fall of a Vikings Super Bowl Sunday. Just like the original show, Church Basement Ladies 2: A Second Helping, focuses on the church women who find strength in each other as they deal with the joys and upheavals of life. The musical runs June 6 to 9 in Hansen Theatre.  Read the rest of this entry →
