AMERICAN MOSIAC Theatre Series, 2018-2021
Stages will perform four powerful and engaging productions as part of American Mosaic, a new theatre series intended to open thought-provoking windows into our country’s history and experiences of being American.

Each explores key moments and themes in US history that have profoundly shaped its course. Audiences will witness four very different theatre experiences that have the potential to shock, challenge, tug at heartstrings, and open possibilities for hope and understanding. The project involves local collaborations, talk-backs, pre-show activities and discussions that examine history and point of view.

Black Elk Speaks    May 4, 5, 6, 2018
A reading of the play by Christopher Sergel, based on John G. Neihardt's book Black Elk Speaks.
The power of the play is not simply that it's superbly written drama but that it's all true. A shattering evocation of the American Plains Indians, it tells in passionate narrative how their West was lost!
"No one who sees this play will ever forget it.”

Quilters   November, 2018
The settling of America from women's points of view, told in story, song and quilt patches. Pieced together through story and music, this American frontier drama examines the timeless
complexity of women’s lives.

John Brown’s Body   2019
A dramatic and choral production of Stephen Vincent BenĂ©t’s epic poem about the Civil War. This stirring work transcends the expected and manages to make human again an event that has become almost hopelessly entwined with the apocryphal.

Big River   2020
A fully staged production of this stunning Tony Award winning musical based on Twain’s most controversial work, Huckleberry Finn.
