My Stigma Is ... Stigma-ier Than Yours!

A special  PRIVATE  event for NAMI Hennepin

Friday, May 31, 2019 — 7 pm   (doors at 6 pm; food and beverage service available)

Tickets:  FREE

My Stigma Is … Stigma-ier Than Yours!  is a show that has been specially created for NAMI Hennepin.  It uses a combination of song, sketch, story, and improvisation to show the audience that beneath it all, we are really all the same—with our foibles, anxieties, and fears.

Table Salt Productions is the group that brought Psych 101 to NAMI Hennepin back in 2017, and they are thrilled to partner with NAMI once again!

Note that reservations will not be taken before March 15.

Some comments from Twin Cities reviewers:

The hilarious and touching vignettes span a whole range of experiences ... [there's] something for everyone in this delightful collection of songs and stories!

Brad Richason Examiner.com

I applaud this new company
for producing local,
new work!

Janet Preus HowWasTheShow.com

The nonstop volley of improvisational riffing [produces] enough manic energy and irreverent humor to keep even the most reluctant of minds buzzing with laughter.

Brad Richason City Pages

If you're a fan of John Denver, "Country Roads" is a must-see.... These are faithful interpretations of the songs we know and love, which Dennis sings beautifully!
