Does Size Matter? A Question of Small Town Vitality

  • Bryant Lake Bowl 810 West Lake Street Minneapolis, MN (map)

Dr. Kathy Draeger, Statewide Director, U of M Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships

We’ve all heard about the death of small towns both here in Minnesota and across the country. But are things so simple and dire? Will our children only read about rural towns in books? Are we all destined to live in towering skyscrapers in mega cities of 10 million people each? Probably not, but what is the economic and cultural future of small towns? We’ll ask Dr. Kathy Draeger of the University of Minnesota. 

Doors at 6:00 - Show at 7:00 - $12/$10 in advance, with student ID, with Fringe button or for seniors. BUY TICKETS HERE!

What is the show?

Our interview based show is a powerful medium for exploring issues and bringing them to life using theater. All of the ideas and challenges brought up in this conversation serve as the inspiration for the improvised scenes to follow. The improvisers tasks are not to make light of the issues or mock the players involved. Instead, scenes make the previous conversation come to life with living, breathing characters in the situations described. It’s a show unlike any other.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
