Maple Grove residents Ellen Anderson (Watson & Owl Duet), Zoe Carter (Ruby), Jonathan Grommesh (Tour Guide & Council Member), Allie Kiewatt (Nightingale), Eva Ronshaugen (Aster and Baby Lamb Duet) and Jozie Tamarkin (Mechanical Nightingale) have been cast to perform in the upcoming production of The Nightingale at Stages Theatre Company in Hopkins. 

“The Nightingale is a steam-punk and dance inspired musical retelling of the classic fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen,” according to a press release from Stages Theatre Company. 

The production opens March 9 and continues through March 25 and is the 6th collaboration with Escalate Dance

“We collaborate to provide new ways of telling stories; we focus on different styles of music and movement as we create our work,” STC Artistic Director Sandy Boren-Barrett said. “The Nightingale is a dance inspired musical, which means from the moment the show is in development with the writer and composer, through all design elements and casting ‘dance’ is at the focus. This adaptation challenges us all, from the youngest audience member to the adults that bring them, to find beauty in the simple things around us, while acknowledging and appreciating the role technology and progress play in all of our lives.”   

Tickets are available at or by calling 952-979-1111. Tickets are $16 for adults; $14 for seniors ages 60+; and $14 for children, ages 2 to 17.
