DATES: June 2-12, 2016

Thurs-Sat @ 7:30pm | Sun @ 2pm


The best script of the 2015-2016 season.

Twenty years ago, Emma walked out on her husband, cowboy-poet Ulysses, leaving behind their marriage in the middle of the night. Hearing he's in dire straits, she's tracked him down in the wilds of Colorado to find him living alone in a grungy trailer. Their reunion, charged by rage and compassion, rekindles the bond which brought them together all those years ago.

A fierce, yet sometimes funny, take on love and loss told with the simplest of theatrical elements: two people in one room.

TICKETS: Adults: $27 | Youth/Students - $20 | Groups (15+) - $23


Presenting Sponsor: Wells Fargo of Duluth, Minn.





DATES: May 28 & 29, 2016

Sat @ 1pm & 4pm| Sun @ 2pm

Performed by the Theatre for Young Audiences in The Underground.

A world premiere original script following the adventures of Chico Bon Bon, Bug on a Bike, Sneaky Sheep, and other beloved characters created by Duluth author Chris Monroe.

The beloved illustrations come to life, and just wait until to see what kinds of trouble we can get into with this interactive literacy adaptation of Chris Monroe's classic picture books performed by the Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) ensemble. It'll be fun for the whole family!

TICKETS: Adults: $14 | Youth/Students - $12

Make it a Depot Deal: Any child who rides the trains at the Historic Union Depot can see Some Sneaky Sheep for half-off the regular ticket price. Simply show your train ticket to the box office that day.


Presenting Sponsor: the Historic Union Depot
