Theatre L'Homme Dieu (THLD) in Alexandria is proud to announce its upcoming 2009 season.

TLHD, which has offered summer stock theater to the Alexandria area since 1961, has reinvented itself for the 2009 season by importing five high-caliber, often comic musicals.

Melissa Moore, TLHD executive director, said, "After a long and proud tradition of working with St. Cloud State University and other colleges and universities in the upper Midwest, merging students with professional and vocational theater artists, the TLHD board has ambitiously changed direction."

She added that by partnering with Minnesota's professional theaters and revising its ticket offerings, the 2009 season should increase quality, improve value, create demand and lower ticket prices.

What's being deemed as "A Taste of Minnesota," TLHD will feature five musicals from four professional theaters throughout Minnesota.

The theaters include Actors Theatre of Minnesota, The Duluth Playhouse, Minneapolis Musical Theatre and Pioneer Place Theater.

The 2009 season will include these productions:

•Deer Camp: The Musical - Actors Theatre of Minnesota - June 23-28.

•I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change - The Duluth Playhouse - July 7-12.

•Mom's the Word - Actors Theatre of Minnesota - July 14-19.

•A Don't Hug Me County Fair - Pioneer Place Theater - July 21-27.

•The Secret Garden - Minneapolis Musical Theatre - July 28-August 2.
