Join us in 2021! 

As we get closer and closer to a vaccine, Stage North is optimistic that we’ll be back in force in 2021. “Anything Goes” is scheduled to open in mid-March at the Franklin Arts Center.
 
We want to thank the Franklin and the Brainerd School District for allowing us to keep our set up on the stage this entire time. We also want to thank our sponsors (UpNorth Bounce House, SpaQuest, Happy Dancing Turtle, Cat Tales Books and Gifts, Serenity Now Alpaca Farm, and the Bridge of Harmony) as well for staying with us through these trying times.

We are looking ahead to 2021 for our ‘start-back-up.’   If all goes as planned, Anything Goes will be performed March 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, and 27 – evening shows on Thursdays and Fridays with matinees on Saturdays.  Your 2020 tickets will, of course, be honored at these productions.  The Crucible will be performed in October and A Christmas Story in December, 2021.  The exact dates of these productions will be announced at the beginning of next year.

We are very excited to add a Summer show to our 2021 theater season.  For the Brainerd sesquicentennial, we have hired playwright Roger Nieboer (of Baby Face fame) and local composer Don Gorham to write a humorous, musical, historical play based on the history of Paul Bunyan.  The show: Paul Bunyan: The Myth, The Legend, The Musical will be performed in the air-conditioned Tornstrom Auditorium in June of 2021.

The musical introduced such songs as “Anything Goes”, “You’re the Top”, “It’s De-Lovely”, “Let’s Step Out”, Let’s Misbehave” and “I Get a Kick Out of You.”
