Glad you stopped by. . . feel like stepping out on a Saturday night?
Our Cabarets have been called unique, thought-provoking, brave, and heartwarming.
In short, they simply SPARKLE!
The Wild Yam Cabaret has been delighting, exciting, and challenging its audiences for EIGHTEEN years. Many of the Twin Cities' cutting-edge performers have showcased their work at our Cabaret, and developing artists have found a friendly stage and lots of support. So grab a friend and come on down for poems, stories, songs, dance, and other genres too original to easily describe, all from a woman's point of view, and...
WELCOME TO YOUR NEW FAVORITE GIRLS' NIGHT OUT!
(But men like us, and we like them too.)
OUR NEXT SHOW IS SATURDAY, MARCH 29, 2014
It's our annual Women's History Month extravaganza
at the Black Forest Inn in Minneapolis!
26th and Nicollet, 7:30 pm
The Black Forest always offers a Deutsch-tastic time, with great German food & drink, which you are welcome to take into the show with you!
Here's the lineup as of 3/8/4:
Our wonderful Heidi Arneson, with some exciting new work. Here is her synopsis:
It's the winter of 1970, in the milk-white suburb of Rose Lake, Minnesota, and little Heidi is determined to put on a Christmas play, but her efforts are upstaged by three generations of family butting heads over her sister's new husband!
Oldtimey North Country musical kitsch (tuba! accordion!)
Denise McWaters and friends: Irish and folk tunes (voice and guitar)
Marilyn is back (can't keep a good old gal down)
Carla Vogel, master storyteller
Lynn Cross with new poetry and maybe a surprise
WANT TO PERFORM WITH US?
We offer a friendly audience and a chance for you to try out new stuff, or polish up an old performance. No performing experience? This is a great way to get it! If you want to be on a show, we'd like you to check us out first, so you know what you're getting into. (Don't worry, this isn't American Idol!) E-mail us for more information.
We like the Black Forest in Minneapolis for our very special Women's History Month extravaganza in March. Our "regular" location is the Mad Hatter Coffee Cafe and Teahouse SAINT PAUL GALLERY at 943 W. 7th St. in St. Paul. It is next door to the BURN UNIT, which is great fun, and has delightful snacks and drinks. We are here through the good will of St. Paul Councilperson Dave Thune and his mom Fran, who have turned the Gallery into a lively little community arts center. We really like this venue--it's in an artsy part of town, and there's some fine feng shui down by the river. We think you'll like it too. Take St. Clair Avenue going east to West 7th. Turn right, go over the bridge, it's about .8 mile past the West 7th/St. Clair intersection. BURN UNIT is on their window (but it's in a kind of avant-garde font, so you have to really peer at it). Start looking on your right once you've gone past the Schmidt Brewery. (Also, there's a red neon pawn shop sign across the street). Here's a map.
