A humble but sincere thank you for coming to shows, spreading the word, creating, conspiring, donating, loving, chatting, and inspiring us for another year. Can't wait to bring you the best year yet and see even more of you!
Cast Information and More!
Good Afternoon! Cassandra Snow, Artistic Director here to tell you all about what you can expect from Precious Little by Madeleine George in March. The show itself centers around Brodie, a linguist, a lesbian, and a single parent-to-be who gets some devastating news about her incoming child--the child may never learn to communicate via words or language. Given her life's devotion to those things, she has some big decisions to make and a lot to learn--not only about lesbian parenting, but about the power of life, love, and what really matters in communication. She's aided in these lessons by some unusual helpers--a gorilla, and the last known speaker of a dying language.
We are doing this show at the People's Center, which allows the grittiness of the script and that you've come to expect from Gadfly.
The cast list has been extremely exciting for me to see Immanuel put together, and includes Sondra Glynn--a multiple show Gadfly actress. You saw her as the honest but loving friend of Mitzi in Mitzi's Abortion, and as a number of fantastic roles in The Good Body. Sondra is taking the role of Brodie in this one. Playing multiple characters each, local talents Joann Ouderkerk and Alana LaBissoniere join the cast as well. Alana has been spotted performing at respected local theaters such as TRP and Cross Community Players, and has been recently seen performing in staged readings for TEASE! Joann is a local talent as well, and we're excited to see her perform multiple roles in this piece.
Gadfly's manifesto and mission stay in our mind when we choose any show, but this one strikes us as particularly "uniquely universal", as it's guaranteed to warm the cockles of any heart who's had to search within itself to find something truly important.
We are STILL looking for the perfect fit stage manager and lights and set designer, so if you fancy yourself as such and want to be involved in this one-of-a-kind and important production, e-mail us at email@example.com with your resume.
We are thrilled, excited, on pins and needles, ecstatic for our event on Sunday! We can't wait for you to see some of the best the Twin Cities has to offer in terms of queer-inspired entertainment!
And I know many of you can't wait to the show to see who all we've got, so I wanted to write our darling audience a quick note with a list. SO:
How's that for a show?! You'll also get to hear cute stories about Gadfly's inception, bid on rockin' silent auction items from tarot card readers (spoiler alert: that's me), tattoo artists, theatre companies, and so, so much more. So, the only question left is: what are you waiting for? Tickets are on sale now and will be until at least Saturday--unless, of course, we sell out. Hope to see you there!
P.S. If you are just straight up not able to make it no matter how hard you've tried but truly do want to help this spunky, funky and growing queer and feminist arts organization, you can always donate via our GiveMN page.
Gadfly Theatre provides an artistic haven for audiences and artists, a place to explore, create, and open safe dialogues about queer and feminist issues.
