The Christmas Store: A Non-profit Organization founded by Ann Hudson,
A special angel that entered heaven on June 16, 2014.  Ann Hudson passed away on June 16, 2014. Before she passed away she made us promise to continue The Christmas Store. In her memory, we do so with great joy!
However, we can’t do it without help from community sponsors and do-nors. This year we are expecting about 350 children to attend needing 3 to 4 gifts each, for a total of approximately 1400 gifts!

USD Play

Friday, November 20th 2015 - 7:30 pm at USD
414 E Clark St

The University of South Dakota Department of Theatre will bring to stage for the 2015-16 season comedies, thrillers and musicals in four productions.

USD actors travel to Transylvania and produce one of Mel Brooks’ famous comedies, “Young Frankenstein,” from Nov. 20-Dec. 6. All characters from the film make their way to stage in this energetic musical as Fredrick Frankenstein creates a creature just like his infamous grandfather with the help of Igor and Inga.

In the spring, the department moves from hilarity to the shadowy world of playwright Martin McDonaugh as it presents his dark comedy “The Pillowman” Feb. 18-21. This play contains adult themes and languages as the audience watches fiction writer Katurian being interrogated by two police about some gruesome child murders.

The main stage season concludes April 14-24 with Stephen Sondheim’s musical “Assassins.” This Tony Award winning musical brings to life people who attempted or achieved the assassination of U.S. presidents. The assassins share stories, meet and discuss issues and inspire each other as they pursue their idea of the American dream.

All USD Theatre Department performances are in the Wayne S. Knutson Theatre on the USD campus with evening performances at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Season tickets, which provide a 25 percent discount, are $45 for adults, $36 for seniors (62+), $30 for youth (K-12) and non-USD students, and $15 for USD students with a valid ID. A form for ordering season tickets can be downloaded from or requested by calling 605-677-5400 or emailing
