The 2019-20 season opens with Nature, the mythic telling of Emerson and Thoreau’s mutual love affair with the natural world. Grounded in the story of their friendship, this virtuosic production offers a perspective on their lives that is strikingly relevant, richly complex, and yet utterly simple. This original work was collaboratively created with writer/actor Tyson Forbes, a direct descendant of Ralph Waldo Emerson. Nature is performed outdoors as a walking play. A professional ensemble of actors takes the audience on a journey through the natural environment as scenes unfold around them. Bagpipes, ancient flutes, drums, and rich choral arrangements are intricately woven into the script. Nature is an extraordinary, family-friendly experience that commingles story, spirit, and the outdoors.

Nature is an outdoor event, and audience members will move to different locations throughout the performance. Accommodations will be available for those with mobility or other limitations. Please call 507-457-1715 or email to ensure we are aware of your needs.

Tickets are offered on a pay-what-you-can basis. Suggested prices are $15 for adults, and $8 for youth ages 17 and younger.
