Over the next week The O’Shaughnessy will host 3 equally unique theater going experiences, 2 being in their Women of Substance series. On October 12th, the dance company Gilliam Dance, will present Blush, an ode to humanity between extremes. It is presented in conjunction with the Northrup. On the 14th, be serenaded by the dulcet tones of Fiona Apple and Blake Mills. And on the 19th, don’t let the testosterone hit you in the face when the men of Celtic Thunder take the stage!
The O’Shaughnessy , located on the scenic main campus of St. Catherine University in St. Paul, opened in 1970 and began its first dazzling season with such tenants as the Minnesota Orchestra, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and the Schubert Club. World-class artists, Opera Tenor Robert Tucker and Soprano Leontyne Price, as well as film stars Vincent Price and Agnes Moorehead were some of the first to perform in the hall.
The Women of Substance series, founded in 1996, seeks to encourage all women to find their voice and place on life’s stage. The series hosts local, national and international artists and continually reminds audience members (of both genders) the importance of living lives of substance. With almost 25,000 patrons annually, the series continues to grow with enthusiastic audiences and broad media appeal.
