BIG BOX

Speed: A Most Excellent Unauthorized Musical Parody brings big action to a little theatre.

Explosions? Check.

A flying bus? Check.

Cops inexplicably shooting other cops? What do you think, hotshot?

All of this is accompanied by parodies of hit songs from the 90's, like "Whoomp, There It Is!," "Every Morning," "Hold On," and more.

A swindler is making their way from town-to-town and they've found the easiest mark yet - a vain Emperor obsessed with just one thing: FASHION.

Will anyone stand up and tell the truth before the swindler gets away with all of the empire's riches?

For children and their families ages 5 and up.

PARTNER PRESENTATION

The NJI+KIDD Creative Collective Presents: enuf

Building upon Akwi Nji’s 2023 project, this live performance is inspired by the theme of “being enough” (and adopts the spelling of ‘enuf’ used by poet and playwright Ntozake Shange) and relationships as a spiritual sanctuary. Adapted from the lyrics and lines of her audio album of the same name, the live performance is a journey of identity and Black solidarity.

The live performance features Akwi Nji, L.D. Kidd, Alicia Strong, and EJ Swavv.

Mark your calendars now! Saturday, June 22, 2024 Doors at 7:00, Performance 7:30.

This project is graciously supported, in part, by a grant from the Iowa Arts Council (a division of the Iowa Economic Development Authority) and the National Endowment for the Arts.
