MSUM’s School of Performing Arts theatre students will have to summon their bravest selves for the third performance of the academic year. The Full Monty opens Wednesday, Feb. 15, on the Hansen Theatre stage in the Roland Dille Center for the Arts.
A raucous pop-rock musical, The Full Monty tells the story of six unemployed steel workers who put together a strip act to raise money to pay their bills. The men model their show after the Chippendales, a famous male striptease act, but they take it a step farther by going “the full Monty” — completely nude. As the men prepare for the show, they work through their fears, self-consciousness, and anxieties, overcome their inner demons and find strength in their camaraderie. The show is based on the cult hit film of the same name, and tackles gender expectations and stereotypes with humor and honest affection. Read the rest of this entry →

On Saturday, Jan. 25, at 7:30 p.m., a different kind of flute player and a different kind of string quartet take the stage at MSUM’s Roland Dille Center for the Arts.
Robert Mirabal is a Native American flutist who has won two GRAMMY awards, two Native American Artist of the Year awards, and three Songwriter of the Year awards. He’s a Pueblo Indian who lives a traditional life as a horseman and farmer while at home outside Taos, N. Mex., but who also travels all over the world to perform his music. He also makes and sells his own flutes, composes, paints, tells stories, acts, and writes screenplays.
Joining this Native American Renaissance man for the MSUM performance (the third in the Cheryl Nelson Lossett Performing Arts Series) is alternative, and for this performance, electrified, string quartet ETHEL. Based in New York City, ETHEL has initiated innovative collaborations with numerous international artists including David Byrne, Bang on a Can, Todd Rundgren, and hundreds of others.
