Connections. Creativity. Community.


Original Comedy auditions are each 30 minutes long. You do not need to come with anything prepared to your audition. Auditions will be comprised of you reading an excerpt from the original script, and working with the team of people who are there for your audition. 

People ages 12 and up can audition for this show because it is a multi-generational show. 

The show performances are: March 31st, April 1st, (NO show April 2nd,) April 7th, April 8th, and April 9th at Hastings Middle School. 

The Original Comedy is a script that is written by a Black Dirt team of writers with the idea to "make 'em laugh" since the world needs extra laughter some days! 

Current Classes

We are working hand-in-hand with Hastings Community Education this year to create classes that help kids learn about theater through a variety of creative play sessions. This class is for Grades 1-5 and will feature unique material from Black Dirt Theater's previous sessions, which means that material will be new for second time registrants!  Classes run February 27- March 29th. 

Black Dirt Improv

In 2011, we started an improv troupe for the winter season.  We started with a rotating list of six local performers and have grown into a professional troupe with a roster from across the Twin Cities.

Black Dirt Theater would not be what it is without the generous donations of all of our donors. Ticket sales only cover about half of the cost to do a show each time. Your donations, both one time and monthly, help us to keep the quality of our productions at the quality level that we all thrive for. Donations help us to bring the community together through creative theater all year long.
