Renegade Opens Its 2009 Season!



(Duluth, MN) – Renegade Comedy Theatre is proud to announce the kick-off of their 2009 season with a production of Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire’s uproarious comedy smash, WONDER OF THE WORLD! This production runs Thursdays through Saturdays, February 12th through the 28th at the Teatro Zuccone in downtown Duluth. All performances are at 8pm and tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for students and seniors. Call 218-336-1414 for tickets or purchase them online at

The play follows Cass, a young woman who finds a secret in her husband’s sweater drawer so shocking that she has no choice but to leave him and begin a frantic search for the life she missed out on. Armed with only a suitcase, some jello molded in the shape of a fish and a list of all the things she wants to do before she dies, she boards a bus bound for Niagara Falls. What follows is a hysterical adventure as Cass befriends a blithely suicidal alcoholic, finds true love with a lonely tour boat captain and tries to avoid her husband and the pair of bickering private detectives he’s hired to track her down. Will Cass find a new life or take a barrel ride over the falls?

“I rarely laugh out loud when I see plays, even less when reading them,” admits Artistic Director Katy Helbacka, who’s directing the play. “But when I read this play, I laughed out loud … a lot. This is one of those rare plays that features an abundance of strong roles for women. In theatre, there is a large disparity between the number of actresses and the number of good roles. As an actress, I can attest to how boring it can be playing the damsel-in-distress, the girlfriend or the sassy best friend. This play offers our local talented actresses the chance to take the lead in telling the story. The men are the supporting cast this time. In this show, it’s all about the ladies!”

“We felt this was the perfect show to kick-off our 2009 season, as it reminds audiences that Renegade is committed to entertaining our audiences. As it has been for the past 17 years, a large amount of that entertainment comes from making people laugh, and that won’t change. This show serves as a reminder of what we do best, but also offers a peek into the new direction we’re heading with attention paid to the technical aspects of productions as well as a desire to tell moving, fascinating and meaningful stories in a fresh, bold, new way.”
