I always leave Open Window Theatre thinking, “I need to do this more often.” Going to Open Window combines the fun of going out with the relaxed atmosphere of watching television. I think the only thing that would make the experience better is if they replaced their current seating with love seats and easy chairs.  (Maybe they will do that. They are expanding next season).  You can learn a little more about Open Window and their Mission from Gianna, here.

TPS promo IVSaturday’s date night to see The Potting Shed was the usual reminder that I want to do this more often. One thing that made it a great date night is that, not only did it not require preparation, I actually enjoyed myself more going in cold. I’ve never taken a theater appreciation course and I’m not a theology major, and that’s okay.  I just enjoyed the story and I actually was on the edge of my seat for portions of the show — just like they claimed.  It was really no more effort than watching a movie. That isn’t always true in live theatre.

I did go in knowing that I love Graham Greene as a writer and that Graham Greene and Open Window always have a faith connection.  I don’t want to give too much away, but if you like mysteries and drama, you’ll enjoy a night out to see the Potting Shed.

While children over 4 are always welcome at Open Window, this play is recommended for 13+.  There’s nothing objectionable; it just won’t interest most children.

Regular Prices:

Advance Rate:
$1;6/child 4-6 yrs
At the Door Rate:
$20/children 3-6 yrs


Thursday nights are “pay what you are able” with a minimum price of $1.  This price is at the door only and first come, first served.

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
