About The Zephyr Theatre!
A unique blend of theatrical and musical experiences
The Zephyr Theatre will create a unique blend of theatrical and musical experiences through professional performances and education for people of all ages. We will be a must-see destination for audiences and a gathering place for art and artists in the St. Croix Valley and beyond, acquiring a national presence and recognition.
As a professional theatre in the St. Croix Valley, The Zephyr Theater will produce productions of the highest quality that are visually, acoustically, and artistically beautiful. We will create and revive classic musicals and plays, while incorporating music, musical cultures, and dance into the live arts in meaningful ways. We will provide a testing ground for new ideas and projects, while providing a place for the community and youth to learn and grow to their full potential in the arts.
Calyssa Hall is a resident of Afton, Minnesota, and has worked for many years as a freelance director, stage manager, musician, production coordinator, lighting designer, and technician for professional and community theatres throughout the greater Twin Cities area. She graduated Summa Cum Laude in music and musical theatre from the University of Wisconsin – River Falls. Ms. Hall has taught drama in the Stillwater Area School District and has directed community education theatre programs in Inver Grove Heights and South St. Paul. In 2013, she founded the company that is now known as Only a Dim Image Productions and will further its mission through the creation of The Zephyr Theatre.
“What we see now is only a dim image of things to come,” says Ms. Hall. “Theatre, in turn, is a reflection of reality, including the reality of thoughts, memories, and dreams.”
