Spotlight



Theatre B productions have been remarkable in the sustained high quality of their work: the choice of plays, the abilities of the actors, the stage craft. The group makes a wonderful contribution to the Fargo-Moorhead area, and I look forward to its future.

Announcing Open Auditions for Slice of Life by James DeVita. Directed by David Wintersteen.

October 7 at 7:00pm & by appointment
Auditions will be held at Theatre B's Office 
1104 2nd Ave S, Suite 306 Fargo, ND

Slice of Life opens November 25 and runs through December 31. No performances on December 24 or 25. Performances Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30pm with 2:00pm Matinees on December 4 & 18. 

The role of Abby McShane is open.

Abby McShane: Mid to late twenties. Slightly awkward in movement, as well as life. She seems to exist in a perpetual state of overwhelm; for the most part self-generated. She has suffered from varying degrees of anxiety issues much of her adult life and, at her best, manages it with an ironic and self-deprecating humor -- at her worst, it can get the best of her and she needs to either figuratively or literally escape from wherever she is.

Theatre B Ensemble Members Scott Horvik, Lori Horvik, Missy Teeters, and Carrie Wintersteen have already been cast. 

Please prepare a short (1 minute) contemporary monologue for auditions.

Playwright James DeVita will join Theatre B to workshop his new play, Slice of Life. For Terry and Denise, life’s biggest trial is helping their grown daughter calm down and find direction – that is until Terry’s high school sweetheart, now a self-help guru, returns to inform him that he has a second daughter. Slice of Life takes us on a hilarious rollercoaster ride of hope and regret as Terry struggles to hold his changing family together. 

For questions, perusal scripts, or if you are unable to attend but would like to audition, please email info@theatreb.org.

New Space New Season

The Ensemble of Theatre B is proud to announce the next season of invigorating plays and their new location!

The 2016-2017 season will begin with How the World Began, Catherine Trieschmann’s play about a Manhattan science teacher who wrestles with the place of religious conservatism within schools in Kansas. This show will perform from late September to early October.

Playwright James DeVita will join Theatre B to workshop his new play, Slice of Life , running the month of December. For Terry and Denise, life’s biggest trial is helping their grown daughter calm down and find direction – that is until Terry’s high school sweetheart, now a self-help guru, appears to inform him that he has a second daughter. Slice of Life takes us on a hilarious rollercoaster ride of hope and regret as Terry struggles to hold his changing family together. 

Closing out the season will be Robert Askins’ Hand to God. This raucous dark comedy uses a Texas church’s puppet club to explore religion, morality, and the function of Satan in our lives. An exciting and controversial play that cannot be missed, Hand to God will play in March and April.

Theatre B will begin its 2016-2017 season at 409 Broadway, former home of the Schumacher Goodyear Tire Store. The building has a large warehouse area perfect for hosting a theatre!

We are very excited to energize a new theatre venue, but Theatre B is still looking for its “Forever Home.” If you or someone you know has property, please connect us! A “Request for Proposals” with more information about preferred specifications for an appropriate space is available below. 

We hope you will follow us as we tread back up Broadway in Season 14!

What's New at Theatre B? 

After spending 10 years at its current venue of 716 Main Avenue in Fargo, the time has come for Theatre B to search for a forever home. We are applying our celebrated creativity to the search for a performance space.  We are seeking proposals to temporarily house the ensemble in new and surprising locations. The company hopes to activate unlikely buildings and neighborhoods while creating another season of engaging art. The proposals are open to anyone with space located in the Fargo-Moorhead area. The ideal space would be 2500-5000 square feet, have no posts or have widely spaced posts, a minimum ceiling height of 14 feet, and have wheelchair accessibility.

"These short-term homes are a 'Win-Win,' for the owners and developers who may choose to host Theatre B and its company. Theatregoers spend time and money ‘out on the town,’ and nearby amenities benefit from a regular flow of artists and a diverse audience.  We will bring vitality to unexpected spaces and, just like our art, we’ll encourage people to see the spaces in a new light.” - Carrie Wintersteen

"It's kind of like a mirror of what we have in our own lives but might be afraid to talk about. And then you see it there, on stage, in front of you. It really can change your life."

There have been a lot of entertaining, provocative, and powerful productions that Theatre B has produced or been a part of. We invited a few fans to talk about one that impacted them. You can view the video below or on YouTube.
