On Sunday, December 10, celebrate the holidays with Naked Girls Reading. This month, the beauties with brains of Naked Girls Reading Minneapolis are baring more than just their behinds. ‘Tis the season!

Naked Girls Reading, called appropriately racy by Entertainment Weekly and the best thing to happen to books since they were put on tape by Carson Daly, was founded in Chicago in March of 2009 by International Showgirl Michelle Lamour and husband Franky Vivid.

After the very first event, it was obvious to all in attendance that something big had just happened - something spiritual. There’s something beautiful, something altogether more intimate, about a woman reading pretty much anything in her, well, altogether. It’s just that simple.

So why are we still talking about it? Because people can’t seem to accept its simplicity. Once you experience it, you’ll stop asking so many questions and just let the concept take you.

Naked Girls. Reading.
or, Girls Reading. Naked.
However you need to explain it to yourself is fine. And while you do, well be over here—reading.
Naked.

Saturday, Dec. 23, 10:00 p.m.

*This is a very adult production with strong language and not for those offended by modern roast humor. *Must be 18+

The Comedy Roast of Mr. Scrooge combines the oldest traditions from comedy—savagely mocking someone—and the holidays—imbibing in one too many ‘nogs and telling everyone what you really think. All the classic, beloved characters from A Christmas Carol finally get their chance to give Scrooge what’s coming to him in words that Charles Dickens never even knew.

Starring some of the Twin Cities’ funniest actors, this irreverent and raucous show is the perfect anecdote for those who prefer a little more spice and a little less nice to their holidays. This ain’t your average Christmas Carol!

“I had the best of times! Tis a far, far funnier thing than I did!” — Charles Dickens

“Exceeded even my expectations!” — Pip

“It was so funny, I peed my knickers!” — Mrs. Dickens

Hedwig and her punk rock band The Angry Inch are traveling to the wicked little town of St. Paul, MN, after a successful three-year encore performance in Duluth, MN. Following the beautifully tragic story of East German-born Hansel Schmidt, this powerful rock musical will speak to those who understand what it’s like to desperately be searching for your other half. Winner of the 2014 Best Show of the Northland and Best Actor and Actress of the Northland by The Reader Magazine, this sold-out show packed the house at The Underground Theatre, located on the shore of Lake Superior. Zenith City Horror is excited to bring this debut production to The Cabaret at Camp Bar and share some of Duluth’s best talent with the metro.

Set in the small Minnesota town of Christmas Lake, the local theater is gearing up for their winter production of It’s A Wonderful Life when they get the news that the rights to perform their show have been pulled! With only one day left to find a new show and cast, Collin and his wife Tess must search the town to find anyone willing to learn a new show in less than 24 hours. With the theater facing financial problems and Tess and Collin’s marriage on thin ice, it’ll take a miracle to get to opening night.

Filled with laughs, plot twists, and heartwarming holiday cheer, Miracle on Christmas Lake is a story about coming together and remembering what is important during the holidays.

Resetting the Conversation on Science

From evolution to climate change, there are growing concerns about the misalignment between public discourse and scientific consensus. Our panelists explore what’s behind this mismatch and how we might establish a shared understanding of what we know and how we know it.

Join Valery Forbes, dean of the College of Biological Sciences; Shawn Otto, author of The War on Science; and Sehoya Cotner, a faculty member who studies the factors that influence acceptance of scientific concepts for an evening of curiosity-driven discussion.
