We are less than two weeks out from our 18th production. I am positively thrilled to direct an original adaptation of two classic English Folktales, penned by Steve Schroer of Hardcover Theatre: Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came (with a heavy influence from Robert Browning's eponymous poem from 1855) and a lesser known tale called "The Red Ettin".
It's no secret that Six Elements productions are characterized with no small amount of theatrical violence. We're very proud to be the only company in the Twin Cities area with a resident fight director who is a Certified Teacher with the Society of American Fight Directors, our very own Mike Lubke. We crunched the numbers and determined that we have averaged 3.3 character deaths per show. Childe Roland single-handedly brings our death-per-show average up to an impressive 4.1. (Discounting Human Combat Chess, our annual fight show, that average jumps to a formidable 6.1 deaths per show).
We hope to see you in the audience for one of our bloodiest shows yet, as we delve into the nature of morality, duty, heroes, and villains.
