Freshwater Theatre presents the world premiere of Pioneer Suite, a new musical by Keith Hovis, this October!



Meet Margaret Housel, of “suicidal fame,” misunderstood and mocked by the press for exposing her husband as a murderer, Martha Angle Dorsett, the first woman admitted to the Minnesota Bar, and Mary Carpenter, a woman whose 13 year correspondence of life as a farmer’s wife is a haunting look at the toll the prairie took upon its women. Pioneer Suite immerses you in the lives of Minnesota pioneer women in danger of having their powerful stories lost to history.

October 3-18 at Nimbus Theatre
1517 Central Ave NE
Minneapolis, MN 55413

Freshwater Theatre will once again offer 5 performance slots to run in rep with Pioneer Suite this fall to a 2015 Minnesota Fringe company looking to springboard into further production with our 4th annual Fringe Consolation Remount! More details to come!
