Minnehaha Avenue PR

EVERY CITY, EVERY STREET, EVERY FAMILY HAS A HISTORY TO TELL
nimbus' 2005-2006 season opens with Minnehaha Avenue at the Theater Garage.

August 25, 2005

Saint Paul, MN (August 30, 2005) – Take a trip down Minnehaha Avenue, a street that, in it’s own diagonal way, has woven itself into the fabric of our lives. An original work crafted from memoirs, 8mm family film footage, diary entries and neighborhood lore, Minnehaha Avenue spins a yarn that spans 4 generations of growing up and growing old in Southern Minneapolis. A new play workshopped and directed by nimbus co-artistic director Liz Neerland, Minnehaha Avenue tells stories in the languages that generations use to speak to one another – from the giggles at a boy-girl dance, to the whispers of buildings long gone, to the roar of a ’47 Studebaker hurtling toward the Persian Palms for a nightcap.

 

Minnehaha Avenue will be presented September 9-25 at the Theater Garage, 2000 Lyndale Ave S, in Minneapolis. Performances run Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 3pm. Tickets are $10.00 on Thursdays, $12.00 all other days, and $16.00 for the opening night performance and gala. A special pay-what-you-can performance will be held on Monday, September 19th.
