The Protector of Osmir

Don’t be surprised if woodland sprites show up in a production by Impossible Salt. The company was founded in 2014 by artistic directors Emilia Allen and Parker Genné to produce “Tatterhood,” their take on a Norwegian folk tale about a princess born riding a goat. Since then, they have been laying claim to the earthy, eco-friendly corner of the theater world, with fantastical fable-like shows rooted in nature. Impossible Salt’s latest offering is a self-generated piece called “The Protector of Osmir.” The werewolf-themed narrative revolves around a town that has been terrorized by a mysterious creature. Each month, the animal attacks someone in the otherwise thriving community, causing fear and introspection. The production, a collaboration with the Minneapolis Music Company, is directed by Allen and features performer Gregory Parks alongside Genné. (7:30 p.m. Thu., 8 p.m. Fri.-Sat., 2 p.m. Sun., 7:30 p.m. Mon. $18-$20. Nautilus Music-Theatre, 308 Prince St., St. Paul, impossiblesalt.org.)
