Theatre L'Homme Dieu has announced that its 2022 theatrical season will start with the hit musical Glensheen, which was postponed last year because of a rise in COVID variants.

Glensheen, a traveling show staged by the St. Paul-based History Theatre, tells the story of the 1977 murders of heiress Elisabeth Congdon and nurse Velma Pietila at the Glensheen mansion in Duluth. It will play June 22-July 2.

Minnetonka Theatre will perform "Something Rotten," Tuesday-Sunday, July 12-17. It tells the story of two brothers desperate to write a hit play and who set out to write the world’s very first musical instead.

On July 26-30, Collide Theatre will perform "Class of '85," inspired by the John Hughes movies of the 1980s. This performance celebrates the secrets behind high school stereotypes and the need for inclusion and acceptance. Watch for high-energy dance, big hair, and radical music.

A cult classic, "Clue: On Stage!" will wrap up the theatrical performances from Aug. 9-19. Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie, which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, Clue mixes farce with murder mystery. This show will be produced by Theatre L'Homme Dieu.
