A Christmas Carol

Wurtele Thrust Stage

Until December 28, 2014

J.C. Cutler returns to the Guthrie, playing the role of Ebenezer Scrooge for the third time, following acclaimed performances for the last two years. This perennial favorite received a new adaptation by Crispin Whittell in 2010 and continues the Guthrie holiday tradition for the 40th year.

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Wurtele Thrust Stage

February 7-March 29, 2015

A Midsummer Night's Dream is Shakespeare's most riotously fun and magical pieces. In his final season at the helm, The Guthrie's Artistic Director Joe Dowling stages it for the third and final time, with a bold and vibrant re-imagining.

The Crucible

Wurtele Thrust Stage

April 11-May 24, 2015

The case of the Salem witch trails is still one of the most infamous losses of innocent lives, and has gone down in history as an example of how mass hysteria can compound superstition and lead to fatal consequences. In The Crucible, Arthur Miller's seminal Tony winning contribution to the American dramatic canon, he brings the 1692 community of strong moral purists to life, and allows us to find, in the reflection, the atrocities commuted in the 1950s, in the similarly panicked climate under the shadow of McCarthyism.

The Music Man

Wurtele Thrust Stage

June 20-August 23, 2015

One of the most beloved musicals in American theater repetoire, The Music Man will be marching into a theater near you soon! When a fancy-footed conman instrument salesman into a small town, he is determined to fleece the naive community by pretending to teach the local children to play in a marching band! But as the conman is drawn deeper into his con, he falls for the local librarian, and undergoes a change of heart. Will he be able to deliver his promise?
