Theatre in the Round Rundown

This Season’s Must-See Performances

Illustrator: Katie Heywood

Theatre in the Round, located on Cedar Avenue, just off West Bank, has been a staple in the Minneapolis theatre community for years. Currently in their 66th season, Theatre in the Round is known for the diversity of their theatrical productions. With seats encircling the entirety of the stage, the audience is immersed in a production for a unique theatre-going experience.

With winter now in full swing, what better way to spend a chilly night than indoors experiencing a world-class performance? This season’s productions involve a number of different genres. Here’s a rundown of my picks for must-sees of the season:

  1. For mystery lovers, “And Then There Were None” is currently showing at the theatre and runs until December 17th. Based on the popular Agatha Christie novel, this play centers on multiple murders on a remote island.
  2. For comedy lovers, “Rhinoceros” will be showing from January 5th-28th. This production by Eugene Ionesco is about a man who realizes everyone around him is turning into a rhinoceros and questions social conformity in human nature.
  3. For book lovers, the performance of “Emma” from February 9th-March 4th will be a hit. An adaptation of her famous novel, Jane Austen is also part of this production as she guides her characters through the challenges of finding love.

With seats encircling the entirety of the stage, the audience is immersed in a production for a unique theatre-going experience.

Besides these three, Theatre in the Round will also be showing “Canterville Ghost,” “Metromaniacs,” “Postmortem,” and “Jeeves in Bloom.” The 66th season of performances began in November and will run through late July. Regular tickets are $22; they also offer student discounts on Fridays and Sundays. Learn more about Theatre in the Round at theatreintheround.org.
