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

After a slow start, we got back in the swing in 2021.

Over the spring and summer we held four performances of Country Roads: Dennis Curley Sings the Music of John Denver — in Duluth, Elk River, Alexandria and Faribault.  The shows were all well attended, and we had a great time getting back in front of live audiences again!

Next, in mid-October, we produced our annual musical fundraiser, this year exclusively featuring performances from Dennis Curley, Jennifer Grimm & Joe Cruz, and appropriately titled You Don't Own Me!  Thanks to the generosity of Table Salt's audiences, we were able to donate over $3,000 to the Minnesota charitable corporation Our Justice, whose mission is to ensure that all people and all communities have the right to make their own sexual and reproductive health decisions.  We were thrilled to put our time and energy toward this worthy goal — with your help!

And then it was a mad dash to the end of the year!  We presented five total performances of THREE NEW SHOWS in November:  Tom Waits for Everyone, featuring the musical talents of Katy Hays, Dennis Curley and Gary Rue; Penny and the Bandits (original music written and performed by Jen Scott and friends); and the long-awaited return of our holiday variety show, Spiked! — featuring music and comedy by Dennis Curley, Dorian Chalmers, Michelle Cassioppi, Joshua Will and Jim Robinson!

What will 2022 bring?  Here's a hint:  we will be in the recording studio in January, and back on stage in February!  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!
