Now Showing

Here's what's coming next from Table Salt Productions!

What a 2022!

In February, we brought back Tom Waits for Everyone due to overwhelming popular demand.  The talents of Katy Hays, Gary Rue and Dennis Curley were on full display.

Next, in June, we premiered a new sketch-and-music show created by and starring Katy McEwen and Katy Hays called No One Asked For This: She Believed She Could, So She Died!  Two great weekends with two incredible talents!

In July we premiered our latest musical tribute show, How Sweet It Is: The Music of James Taylor and Carly Simon at the beautiful Paradise Center for the Arts in Faribault, MN.  Audiences were delighted, and we can’t wait to bring the show to the Memorial Auditorium in Worthington next spring!  Contact us for bookings.

And in September we were grateful once again to be asked to partner with NAMI Hennepin in creating a new Table Salt best-of show, HITS … and Misses!  Featuring Katy McEwen, Katy Hays, Julie Grover, Dennis Curley and Jim Robinson, this sketch-and-song show included our favorite material from our very first season up until today.

Finally, we wrapped up the year with two tremendous experiences: the release of Honeywine’s second album "A Desert in Bloom" (available for purchase here as a CD and here as a digital download) AND six performances of Spiked! at the beautifully restored Granada Theater in Uptown Minneapolis!  Our core cast and band included Katy McEwen, Maureen Tubbs, Joshua Will, Jim Robinson, Dennis Curley, Dorian Chalmers, Natalie Nowytski, Scott Keever and Marc Bohn, with guest appearances from nine of the Twin Cities’ finest music and comedy performers.

We can’t wait for 2023!  Watch this space!

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!
