Saint Peter, MN— Theatre Honors Alum Kimberly Braun ’11 is performing this month with the Iowa Theatre Artists Company in Amana, Iowa. Braun is playing the role of Callie Belle Hurt in “A Southern Exposure” by Kelley Kingston-Strayer. The performances of “A Southern Exposure” are November 11 through 27. Fridays at 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 1:30 p.m.

“A Southern Exposure” is a charming comedy by Kingston-Strayer and is witty yet poignant, addressing universal themes of family, love, and loss. Callie Belle Hurt falls in love and wants her grandmother and her two aunts to approve. The relationships between these women are touching and the comedy in the quick dialogue is sharp and entertaining. “A Southern Exposure” is a four woman show featuring Braun, Cherryl Moon Thomason, Marty Norton and Meg Merckens.

The Iowa Theatre Artists Company is dedicated to providing hands-on education and practical experience for professionals training in the field. Working with the Iowa Theatre Artists Company on a performance and technical internship this fall, Braun assistant stage managed “Give My Regards!”, “The Kitchen Witches”, and “The Lady With All the Answers” and was the assistant to the director for “Arsenic and Old Lace.” This summer, Braun worked at the St. Croix Festival Theatre in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin performing in “Once Upon a Mattress” and as a teaching artist in “Seussical The Musical.” At the St. Croix Festival Theatre, Braun also performed with the improv troupe that devised a work entitled “Warmth of Place.”
