Monster Tales Performance Schedule

This spring's production of The Monster Tales brings a number of changes to how Mill 6 has put together shows.  For example this show will have an intermission.  You would have to go back to 2005 and Sean Michael Welch's Trojan Whore to find the last time we took a break of 12-15 minutes mid show.  Another large change is we will be performing this show in rep with Whistler in the Dark's production of Aunt Dan and Lemon.  This means that we will be alternating performances.  And while it may make our schedule a little more confusing at first, it does allow us to run for four weekends something we haven't done since Cafe Society in 2000.  One of the most common critiques I've received about our shows is that the runs are too short.  Hopefully this performance schedule will allow more folks to attend.  Plus we'll be offering some price incentives for people to see both shows.  We will be posting the full schedule on our website once it is updated but for now for all of you who like to plan things well in advance here are the days and times Monster Tales will be performing:

Sat April 30 - opening night 8:00PM

Thurs May 5 - 7:30 PM
