Teacher Of The Year – a new play by Jim Dalglish

It’s the Spring of 2020 and the Minnehaha Montessori School of South Minneapolis has gone totally online. Annie – a finalist for Minnesota Teacher of the Year – should have no problem getting her 6th graders to the end of the school year.

Easy. Right?

Teacher of the Year tells the story of a woman, a family, a school, a community, a pandemic, and a murder in the city of Minneapolis during the tumultuous Spring of 2020.

Eventide Theatre Company and Cotuit Center for the Arts are proud to present the world premiere broadcast of “Teacher of the Year”, a new play by Jim Dalglish.

Video of entire series is available again through Dec. 31 and makes a great holiday gift!!
Get your ticket at showtix4u.com. Tickets are $25.

Into the Woods was first rate! You and your actors were able to tap into the essences of each character and let them shine! Each movement was like it was choreographed into dance- no movement extraneous. Duets were perfection. Thank you so much for your work. Best wishes for a long run as Artistic Director!
