"... amazing, daring, and challenging work with young actors -- uncensored, unvarnished, and unapologetic. To label blank slate theatre as 'community theatre' or 'children's theatre' would
be like calling Itzhak Perlman a 'fiddler.'" ~ Michael Paul Levin, professional Twin Cities actor
Written by Stephen Karam and PJ Paparelli Directed by Adam Arnold Assistant Directed by Kendall Kent
A play sparked by the massacre at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, columbinus is a meeting of fact and fiction that illuminates the realities of adolescent culture by exploring the events surrounding the shootings. The play weaves together excerpts from discussions with parents, survivors and community leaders in Littleton as well as police evidence to bring to light the dark recesses of American adolescence.
All columbinus performances take place at blank slate theatre (in the basement of First Baptist Church), 499 Wacouta Street in St. Paul. Free parking in church lot.
Tickets are $17 for adults, $15 for students & seniors, and $13 for blank slate theatre actors. Purchase tickets online today by clicking here! Patrons may also purchase tickets at the door with credit card, cash, or check.
