  1. Cymbeline


    450 Johnson St
    Winona, MN 55987
    Call: (507) 474-7900

    When Imogen defies her father King Cymbeline by marrying Posthumus, he is banished to Italy. There he meets Iachimo, a man with a broad claim about women that spurs the men into a reckless wager to test Imogen’s fidelity. The couple's relationship strained, the quest for truth leads Imogen and Posthumus through disguises, far off lands, wicked stepmothers and war in a world where, like many of Shakespeare's plays, there's often more than meets the eye. Great River's nine person production focuses the larger than life story into an intimate exploration of betrayal and pride that challenges the audience to understand forgiveness on a radical level.

  2. Macbeth


    450 Johnson St
    Winona, MN 55987
    Call: (507) 474-7900

    Spurred by a prophecy from three witches that he will become king, the great warrior Macbeth and his wife hatch a plot to take the crown, starting with King Duncan. But as one obstacle is defeated, others pop up, testing the morality of the Macbeths as they must answer what lengths they will go to to get what they want. It turns out that while getting the crown may be accomplished, keeping it is a different story.

    Back on the Great River main stage for the first time since Season 4, the savage world of the Bard's great Scottish Play is once again brought to life this summer. A swift tale that unfolds in an unforgiving world, Macbeth tells a tale of madness, power, and ambition led by one of Shakespeare’s greatest power couples.

  3. The Servant of Two Masters

    The Servant of Two Masters

    450 Johnson St
    Winona, MN 55987
    Call: (507) 474-7900

    Carlo Goldoni's eighteenth century Italian classic is as hilarious as ever in this brand new adaptation. Unbeknownst to each other, two lovers flee to Venice: one in disguise, one on the run from the law, and both in need of a little assistance. When wily servant Truffaldino is faced with the opportunity to secretly serve these two masters for double the money, he is quick to accept…without thinking about the challenges of trying to be in two places at once! Mixups, music, mayhem and a whole lot of fun ensue in an adaptation that showcases classic Commedia dell’Arte characters and lazzi with a modern twist. Echoing the traveling theatre troupes of yore, the production will play on the Great River main stage as well as in found spaces throughout the region.
