SUPER!: A new musical
By Ilana and Ian Henckel

Theatre by and for young audiences kicks off our new year. The Children’s Troupe production provides an opportunity for younger actors to gain acting skills and additional responsibilities in theatre. For (approx) ages 6-10.

All seems right in a little town until the invasion of a robot army threatens the safety of every citizen. Will the super powers of a few brave heroes be enough to save the town from complete panic and chaos?

nAnnie McTwist: A Junior Troupe original musical

Members of Words Players Junior Troupe are busy developing an original musical: nAnnie McTwist: where famous orphans meet famous nannies for a twisted adventure. Characters and songs you’ll recognize (plus original music), and familiar stories that are a bit…topsy-turvey.

Synopsis (still under construction):  A mysterious agency supplies nannies and counter-nannies (villains) to tend to orphans.  We meet Nanny McPhee, Maria Von Tropp, and Mary Poppins, who are unemployed and looking for new jobs.  Oliver Twist, Orphan Annie, and the Baudelaire orphans from A Series of Unfortunate Events, are all miserable with their villainous keepers (Mr. Bumble, Miss Hannigan, and Count Olaf.)

The nannies, who don't really like each other's methods, make a wager to see who can reform the children and oust the villains the quickest.  But who is the mysterious owner of the agency?


Get a sneak peak at a one of the original songs that are being written for the show:

A Story Once Told

A set of 13 original short plays retelling pieces of an old, old Briar Rose story. Set in a proverbial far-off kingdom, at some point between the eleventh and eighteenth centuries (an Italy or Germany of the Renaissance perhaps?), the comical overarching story is the betrothal, marriage and escape of a beautiful princess. Teeming with floating fish, foolish owls, advice-giving rabbits and unicorns backwards speaking, the plays are part of a larger series of plays inspired by the paintings of James C. Christensen. Presented by The Minnesota SkyVault Theatre Company.
