Roasting brussels sprouts with carrots, red potatoes and onions.

Porkchops sprinkled with herbs de province sizzling in the pan.

The last of the red wine.

Kitty asleep on my shoulders.

Season 1 finale of Dexter on Netflix instant.

All of these things make up for the horny teenagers applauding my breasts but not my song in this morning's student matinee.

Suck it.

Re-Imagine Once Upon a Time…
Ball gowns meet bluegrass in this fairytale romance that blends two wildly different worlds filled with music and dance: a bone-chilling ballroom where jealousy erupts and an enchanted forest where young passion blooms. At the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve, one royal family's dream turns into a nightmare. Suspecting his queen cheated on him, a jealous king banishes her and their newborn from the court. Years later the child, a free-spirited young woman, falls for a handsome prince among the flowers of Bohemia. Yet as quickly as their love is forbidden, a series of twists lead them both to a magical homecoming like never imagined.

Please note: Audiences are encouraged to come early and take their seats by 10 minutes of curtain to witness The Winter's Tale company enact a pre-show ahead of the action of the play.

FOR $20 TICKETS: Call the box office at 612.377.2224 and ask for the "ACTOR" offer. Only valid for performances January 29 - February 13
