Kickshaw Theatre announces fourth season lineup
ANN ARBOR—Kickshaw Theatre, Ann Arbor’s pop-up professional theater, will stage two full productions for their 2018-19 season, its fourth since the company’s founding in 2015. “At Kickshaw, we dig deep, turn over every rock to find the freshest, most original voices in the American Theatre today,” says Artistic Director Lynn Lammers. “These plays are bold and surprising and absolutely beg to be experienced live.”
Milvotchkee, Visconsin by Laura Jacqmin: September 13-October 7 at the Interfaith Center for Spiritual Growth, 704 Airport Blvd, Ann Arbor, MI 48108. Milvotchkee, Visconsin is the surreal and eye-opening story of Molly, a woman living with a hole in her head. Molly’s lifetime of memories are falling right out of her head, and fast. Her surroundings become unfamiliar and distorted as she comes to grips with the challenges of her disease. Working with healthcare professionals she doesn’t always understand and a family that doesn’t always understand her, can she find a way to carry on with dignity and peace?
The Ding Dongs (or What Is the Penalty in Portugal?) by Brenda Withers: March 28-April 14, 2019 at trustArt Studios, 7885 Jackson Rd., Suite 1, Ann Arbor, MI 48103. When Joe and Natalie, a sweet-faced couple, show up on a suburban doorstep, the tight-lipped homeowner, Redelmo, finds their story suspicious: the house, they claim, was Joe’s childhood home and they’ve driven all this way in hopes of getting a quick peek around. As a cat-and-mouse game steadily unfolds between a bewildered homeowner and two uninvited visitors, the mood of unease escalates into something like terror.
Each production begins with a pay-what-you-can preview on Thursday, followed by a regular preview on Friday and Press Opening on Saturday. Regular performances are 8:00 pm Thursday through Saturday and 4:00 pm Sunday. Tickets are $25 for general admission and $10 for students.
Kickshaw donors can purchase tickets one week in advance of general ticket sales, which begin approximately one month before each show opens. Tickets will be available for purchase online at www.kickshawtheatre.org, by phone through Showclix at 888.718.4253, and at the door with cash or credit card.
