Just in time for summer. Apply a healthy dose of deodorant, and put your name in the hat. If you're called, you'll step up in front of an adoring crowd and deliver your best 5-minute story. If our three judges think you're swell, you WIN!! The crowd will go wild! You're life will change for the better. If you don't get called, you'll enjoy a bunch of short, short stories and have a beer or two with a lot of great folks.
RSVP to Studio B - required!!
More About Burgdorff Center for the Performing Arts
Burgdorff is the focus of performing arts in Maplewood. Located in a historic stone building near the center of downtown, Burgdorff's programming is managed by ArtsMaplewood. Several groups, such as The Strollers theater, and What Exit? Theatre Company, use the building for their performances, but it also hosts concert series and other events. In addition to the theater productions and concert series, there are also several classes for children — improv, musical theater, and a class called the Fairytail Playhouse, where kids are cast in a "fractured fairy tale" and learn how to take their show from rehearsals to performances.
