Author’s Bios
Meg Mechelke

Local playwright Meg Mechelke is a second year student at the University of Iowa. Far from her hometown of Sartell, MN, she is studying English and theatre and is heavily involved in the campus’s theatre and publication scenes. Her work has appeared both on stage and in print at the university and beyond, and she is excited to be going back to her “GREAT” roots with this project.

Author’s Note

The first play I ever saw at GREAT—quite possibly the first play I saw ever—was the 2006 production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. I was six years old, and I was TERRIFIED. My sole memory of that production is sitting crouched on the floor in the first row of the Paramount balcony, hiding behind the safety rail so that the wolves wouldn’t be able to “get me.” Here began a two-pronged fascination: with theatre and with fairytales.

Thus, it isn’t actually all that surprising that I am making my return to the world of GREAT today with a piece of theatre that is, at its heart, both a celebration and a queering of the fairytale genre, in particular the “happily ever after” ideal we all long for. It seems like a simple concept. Belle marries the Beast, Cinderella finds her prince, Buttercup escapes with Wesley… Of course, today we understand that this idea of a happy ending doesn’t have to include a man, or even a romance. Today when we tell kids to “follow their dreams” and to “dream big,” we mean “get away from your hometown, go to a fancy college, and find yourself a six-figure job in a big city.” In a way, this is just as limiting as the heteronormative, patriarchal concept of every story ending in a marriage. We are obsessed with the idea that living happily ever after means something huge and life-changing and dramatic, which is, frankly, as silly and reductive as it is unrealistic.

Thus, when I tell say that this play is about following your dreams, I don’t mean finding some huge, existential purpose in life or making a million dollars. I mean that this play is about finding the thing that brings you joy, the thing that matters most to you in the whole world, and never, ever letting it go. Enjoy!

Meg Mechelke

A HIGH-SPRITED AND COMPELLING ON-AIR RETELLING OF THE SOMEWHAT HISTORICAL EVENTS OF THE DANCING PLAGUE

Sasparella Trauffea is dancing! And she won’t stop! In this loose adaptation of the somewhat historical events of the Dancing Plague of 1518, the residents of a small town must deal with the consequences of a runaway father, an ostentatious mayor, and, of course, the brazen dancing of the Trauffea girl. Add to the mix a lovesick confectioner and a hasty engagement, and you’ve got the recipe for a rollicking adventure of a radio show that the whole family will love!

This production is approximately 1 hour 15 minutes and appropriate for audiences of all ages.

Abby Schnobrich, Director of Sasparella Trauffea is Dancing!

Loosely inspired by the Dancing Plague of 1518, Sasparella Trauffea is Dancing! is a lighthearted story that is sure to brighten up the airwaves with some good old-fashioned joy. It has certainly been a joy for me to be able to bring theatre to the community again through GREAT theatre. This one-of-a-kind show provides its own challenges, of course, but moreover, it demonstrates the tenacity and resiliency of the arts. Even in the midst of a pandemic, we can still create beautiful and brave art for all to enjoy. I want to express my sincerest gratitude to GREAT theatre and KVSC for continuing to create memorable experiences and opportunities for all volunteers and staff involved.

Since a radio show removes physical staging and visual design elements, rehearsing on Zoom provides a unique opportunity to bring character development and analysis to the forefront. We spent a lot of time in rehearsal dissecting the text and exploring the dynamics between characters. We also had the opportunity to speak with the local playwright and pick her brain, which is an experience that few community theatre actors get to have. In speaking with her, the cast was able to get a look at her creative process and better understand the development of their characters and nuances in their relationships.

Sasparella Trauffea is Dancing! is, at its heart, a story about relationships. Be it a romantic relationship, a father/daughter relationship, a friendship, or even an unsuccessful attempt at connection, relationships with other humans are what tie us together. They are the thread that we hold onto in times of sadness, uncertainty, and celebration. Now, more than ever, we are relying on our relationships and connections to others. I hope you can find in this production a mirror to a relationship or connection in your own life. May it make you want to start dancing and never, ever stop.

Enjoy!
