Considering Matthew Shepard

Twin Ports Choral Project presents

Buy Tickets at NorShor Theatre

Dates
February 21, 2020 - February 22, 2020

Showtimes
7:30pm

Description

Matthew Shepard, the Wyoming teenager who became a national figure after he was beaten and left for dead for being gay in 1998, has inspired this three-part fusion oratorio. Minnesota-native, Craig Hella Johnson, sets a wide range of poetic and soulful texts.

Considering Matthew Shepard evokes the horror of the crime, but through its synthesis of poetry, excerpts from Shepard’s journal and comments from his parents, the piece renders Shepard much more than just a victim. The story transcends a powerfully uplifting message toward a better path for humanity and an invitation to return to love.

March 19, 2020 - April 5, 2020

Showtimes
Thursday-Saturday @ 7:30pm | Sunday @ 2pm

Description

Lovingly ripped off from the motion picture, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is the irreverent parody of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.

In this Best Musical Tony Award winner, the quest for the Holy Grail challenges these noblemen to keep their heads on straight or die terribly weird deaths.

With lively musical numbers, strange places, and even stranger people, this is a night of theater that will have audiences rolling in the aisles.

  • Presenting Sponsor: Duluth News Tribune

Tommy Emmanuel

“If you like guitar playing, it simply doesn’t get any better than Tommy.” – Jason Isbell

Dates
March 25, 2020

Showtimes
Doors @ 7pm, Show @ 8pm

Description

Tommy Emmanuel has achieved enough musical milestones to satisfy several lifetimes. Or at least they would if he was the kind of artist who was ever satisfied. At the age of six, he was touring Australia with his family band. By 30, he was a rock ‘n’ roll lead guitarist burning up stadiums in Europe. At 44, he became one of five people ever named a Certified Guitar Player by his idol, music icon Chet Atkins.

Tommy has developed a style of solo guitar playing that encompasses the range of a whole band—covering drums, bass, rhythm, and lead guitar and a vocal melody simultaneously. No loop pedals, no overdubs, just one man and ten fingers. While thousands of fans have spent years trying to unpack and imitate Tommy’s technique, for him, it’s just the delivery system. His approach is always song and emotion first, his music the embodiment of his soulful spirit, sense of hope and his love for entertaining.

Today, he plays hundreds of sold-out shows every year. All the while, Tommy has hungered for what’s next. When you’re widely acknowledged as the international master of the solo acoustic guitar, what’s next is Accomplice One, an album of collaborations with some of the finest singers, songwriters and, yes, guitarists alive today.

This event is produced by Jade Presents.

TICKETS: $55 (additional fees may apply)

  • This show date is a rescheduled performance (previously scheduled for October 13, 2019, but needed to be rescheduled due to a health issue Mr. Emmanuel needed to pay attention to at that time). Tickets purchased for the original date will be honored for this new performance date.

Mental Health Action Concert

Let's Talk MN presents

Dates
April 25, 2020

Showtimes
6:00pm

Description

LetsTalkMN.com is proud to present its 3rd Annual Mental Health Action Concert featuring Cloud Cult with special guests Ingeborg von Agassiz and Elsa Lee.

This special night of music is meant to raise awareness for mental health and wellness as well as draw attention to action items anyone can do to help improve mental health services in the region. The concert will highlight the LetsTalkMN.com campaign devoted to raising awareness for mental health crisis resources. Representatives from Northland Healthy Minds along with the Make It Ok Campaign and many others will staff a resource fair between 6:00 and 7:00 while Duluth native Elsa Lee brings her home-grown sound to the NorShor mezzanine.

Cloud Cult’s philosophical lyrics and hybrid orchestral rock sound has brought the band accolades including Pitchfork reviewing the band’s work as “insane genius” and recent features in NPR’s On Being, Entertainment Weekly and KCRW. The band has had several albums at the top of the North America college radio charts but has declined major record label deals in favor of staying independent. The common thread through Cloud Cult’s music and films is their uplifting message, continual celebration of life, love and catharsis through music.

All revenues from the show will go to benefit peer support specialists.

  • 6:00pm – Doors open and pre-show Elsa Lee performance in the mezzanine
  • 7:00pm – Opening Act: Ingeborg von Agassiz
  • 8:00pm – Main Act: Cloud Cult

Dates
May 7, 2020 - May 17, 2020

Thursday-Saturday @ 7:30pm | Sunday @ 2pm

Description

Twists and thrilling turns abound when a group of strangers becomes stranded in an English country boarding house, cut off by a sudden snowstorm. Just before the phone lines go dead, they discover there may be a murderer in their midst. But…whodunnit?!

Is it one of the suspicious newlyweds or the spinster with the curious background? Perhaps it’s the architect (who seems more suited being a chef), the retired Army major or the strange man running from his past.

The intrigue builds as Agatha Christie’s best-known head-scratcher unfolds to its surprising conclusion.
