Coming up next:
Ragnarok Theater Productions Hiatus
Big changes are afoot!
First off, thank you to all the talented theater artists who have made this past season everything that it was!
It has been over a year since Marie Thompson took over as Artistic Director of Ragnarok Theater Productions and it was by far the most successful, bold and dramatic year we have had to date.
It is with deepest regret that Ragnarok bids her farewell as she moves to warmer climes.
Marie, you are wonderful and we will miss you in the extreme!
As she steps away from the role of Artistic Director, we have decided to put Ragnarok Theater Productions into a temporary hiatus. We will not be staging any productions for at least this upcoming season.
Ragnarok Film Productions is deep in post production for Tales from Shakespeare & Postscripts (with new editors on board and composers hard at work) and in early pre production for other major projects. We look forward to sharing those stories with you all.
At Ragnarok we have the deepest respect for the power of live performance and when the time is right, we eagerly await another opening of another show. The story of Ragnarok is the story of the world ending with the hope of flourishing thereafter.
And...oh look, here we are :)
A hiatus- with high hopes.
The Mineola Twins
by Paula Vogel
Ragnarok gets political (kind of) with a comedy in 6 scenes, 4 dreams, and (at least) 6 bad wigs. How ridiculous it is for us to start so close and drift so far.
Now watch carefully.
We’ll hold up the mirror.
See if you see your face
if you see your sister’s face
if you see your lover’s face
if you see your child's face
in the face looking back at you from the mirror.

Ragnarok Productions for Young Audiences: Workshop Presentation of New Adaptations of The Odyssey and Alice in Wonderland
Adapted by Nathaniel Glein Scott.
Presented as a new play workshop, these two pieces, each intended for school audiences, were performed on Aug 6, 2017 at North Street Community Chapel.
The Odyssey is as classic a tale as can be, with its well-known journey narrative. Embedded within it is also a vital, important, and sadly current message of violence and the trauma it leaves in its wake that plays out for both Odysseus and his son, Telemachos. Target audience: Middle or High School.
Alice in Wonderland highlights themes of maintaining identity in the face of adversity. By virtue of its protagonist's gender, this message is most particularly geared toward young women still establishing their burgeoning personhood. Target audience: Elementary

On July 31st & Aug 1st, 2015, we attempted a feat we believed to be unprecedented in the history of civilization- to capture in a single theatrical experience the genius, the witchcraft & wizardry, the towering grandeur of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare.
