    Main Stage

    The Rocky Horror Show
    A man.  A woman.  A transvestite.
    Bring along your fishnet stockings and stiletto heels as the cult-classic The Rocky Horror Show comes to stage. You’ll be dancing and singing along to “The Time Warp” and “Dammit Janet” with all of the bawdy fun and frivolity one might expect.

    The Frog Princess
    A prince.  A princess.  A secret.
    The time has come to pass a kingdom on, but first, each son must find a suitable bride. Vying for the position of Queen is a warrior princess, a spoiled princess, and a frog princess! Who will win the challenges put forth by the Queen and ultimately the love of their prince?

    The Diviners
    The depression.  A preacher.  A misunderstood boy.  
    The Diviners, Jim Leonard Jr.’s gothich prarie melodrama, revolves around a disillusioned Kentucky preacher named C.C. Showers and a fictional town called Zion – population forty.  The Diviners is a splendidly complex, deeply moving play.  In turns humorous, beautiful, and tragic -- it is truly a classic American play.

    Tartuffe
    An imposter. Religious fervor.  A seduction.  
    One of the greatest comedies of the French Theater, Tartuffe is an astonishingly, delightful romp which focuses on a con-man’s attempt to turn a household on its ear.  Is Tartuffe as extremely pious and religiously devout as he appears, or is there something else lurking just below the façade?

    Second Stage

    Dear Harvey
    "The play is not only the story of Milk, but of his legacy, and the changes that have happened since his assassination that acknowledge his death wasn’t in vain. It’s an important piece of history, an inspirational story and engaging theater." Jennifer Chung Klam: San Diego Arts

    Stop Kiss

Their first kiss provokes a violent attack that transforms their lives in a way they could never anticipate.

    The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!)
    The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is a musical about musicals. In this hilarious satire of musical theatre, one story becomes five delightful musicals, each written in the distinctive style of a different master of the form, from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim.  This comic valentine to musical theatre was the longest running show in the York Theatre Company's 35-year history before moving to Off-Broadway. An entirely student produced play from directors and actors, to stage management and design.  See MSU Moorhead students put theory into practice in this unique musical theatre performance.
