Free Tickets for Northsiders: Between Us and Grace

Between Us and Grace

Part of the CSA Performance Series
October 26th

Stella is seventeen and ready for what’s next. Chafing at the confines of her increasingly strict religious upbringing, music has become her escape. She shares a too-small town with Jacky, a restless fellow songwriter. A chance meeting on a lonely Sunday night sets in motion a chain of events that will profoundly shift both of their lives. A workshop of a new play laced with music, Between Us and Grace is an exploration of creation, faith and the price of inspiration.

Free Tickets for Northsiders: In the Company of Ghosts

In the Company of Ghosts

Presented by Frank Ferraro and Adrienne Wehr
September 22nd, 23rd and 24th

What happens when we look in a mirror? Do we witness a reflection of our true selves or the sum of the ghosts that travel with us? Utilizing a range of disciplines to conjure their personal ghosts, veteran artists Frank Ferraro and Adrienne Wehr take us on a fearless journey of life on life’s terms.

This world premiere is the result of a two-year collaboration between Wehr and Ferraro. In sharing their own stories with each other, they recognized universal themes common to us all, inspiring them to bring these stories to life through spoken word, video, original music, installation art, soundscapes and more.

“Radical vulnerability that surges forth into the souls of the audience. Frank and Adrienne bravely convey
the full spectrum of what it means to be human. They hold nothing back.”

— Gina, audience member (workshop presentation)

Free Tickets for Northsiders: Macbeth

Macbeth

August 10th and 11th

Urban Impact Shakes

Double, double, toil and trouble,
red smoke hangs and Starbucks bubbles.

Sinister predictions poison a war hero’s mind, as he and his wife do whatever it takes to achieve the power that they think they’re due. What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, yet lose his soul? Just ask Macbeth…

“Something wicked this way comes.”
