The Southern Theater Get’s Spooky, Savage, and Sensitive for Summer
If you’re torn about whether to check out an art show, enjoy a bit of theater, or find a local film fest stop searching because the Southern Theater can satisfy all of your Summer art house needs this month.
If you hurry you can still check out “The Glass Menagerie” produced by Blue Water Theater Company which is known for it’s support of young talent and for embracing mature subjects. This troupe means to redefine young talent and the classics in every show. The actors have spent the past year studying theater around the Midwest and are poised and ready to show you a stirring production of this golden oldie.
While you are there make sure to take a spin around the lobby for Altered Esthetics’s new show “It Came From the Q.arma Building,” which is a part of this year’s season of “AE without walls,” a gallery initiative to host their artists across the Twin Cities. The exhibition takes the horror movie mise-en-scène to a funhouse playground of references. This B-movie homage will fascinate, spook and keep you up all night googling the references to your favorite vintage horror flicks.
This show coincides with AE’s “Art House Film Festival” featuring works that range from experimental to comedy, expository to the poetic, narrative, and animated. It takes place July 25th from 7pm – 9pm.
Don’t forget to swing by for the Southern’s final July hosted residency by the adorably salacious Savage Umbrella. Not surprisingly, they are bringing you sexy-uncomfortable-realness with their public workshop presentation of “June” about a pre-Stonewall Era woman who is introduced to a darker side of life. Bravely exploring the roles we play and the secrets we keep, this presentation promises some interesting reveals. Audience feedback will help shape the final production. Showtimes are July 18th and 19th.
In conclusion, if you are looking for “Art” this month just go west, if you know what I mean. XO.
PS – stay tuned for a really BIG announcement from the Southern Theater. Be there to hear the news in person on July 22nd at the newly renovated Town Hall Brewery at 7 corners.
