7:15pm General meeting

7:30pm Program – Commonweal Theater

Our guest speaker is Adrienne Sweeney, Resident Ensemble Actor/Artistic Director of External Communications/Ibsen Festival Coordinator for the Commonweal Theater in Lansboro, Minnesota.  Originally from South Philadelphia, Adrienne earned her BA in Baltimore and her Masters of Fine Arts in Acting at the University of Arizona.  She joined the Commonweal Theatre Company in 2001, and in 2002 was hired full time to market and expand the scope of the Ibsen Festival.  The Commonweal is the only theater company in North America that does a play by the Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen every year.  In 2008, the Commonweal was one of the inaugural winners for an Ibsen scholarship.  Adrienne and her husband, Hal Cropp, Executive Director of the Commonweal, flew to Norway to accept the award and attend the Ibsen Festival in Oslo.

Please join us to learn more about how the Commonweal Theatre Company helped transform the sleepy little Nordic town of Lanesboro into a thriving destination considered one of America’s twenty best small towns by Smithsonian Magazine.
