Professor C.C. Heintzeman was a visionary educator who used music to change the lives of Minneapolis factory-working boys in the early 1900s. In playwright Dominic Orlando's world-premiere musical, romance, patriotism and the approaching thrum of World War I weave together in a celebration of Heintzeman's life and the rough-and-tumble young men who formed the Working Boys Band under his tutelage. Put on by History Theatre, a company devoted to exploring the rich history of Minnesota, Working Boys Band is a tribute to the power of music, compassion and discipline. Learn More

Written and performed by Aamera Siddiqui
Directed by Meena Natarajan and Suzy Messerole
For Aamera Siddiqui, growing up as an immigrant in the United States was a balancing act between her Indian heritage and her American surroundings. Aamera’s world consisted of one country inside the four walls of her family’s home and another country outside those walls. Curried peas and hot dogs, Catholic school uniforms and colorful saris, Urdu and English all blended and bounced off one another to shape Aamera’s identity.
Told with honesty and humor, American as Curry Pie is one woman’s story about immigration, assimilation, and discovering what it means to be an American.
A free post-show discussion with special guests and the people who bring the stories to History Theatre’s stage, following the weekend matinees on March 19 & 26 and April 2 & 10.
