Immerse yourself

Conquest of the South Pole, a play by Berliner Ensemble member Manfred Karge, opens at 8 tonight for a short run through June 8 at The SandBox, the PlayGround Theatre's smaller space where adventurous theater for grownups has found a home.

Stephen Elliot Kaiser directs the Man Research Theatre Company production of the play about four out-of-work, hard-partying youths who decide to reenact Ronald Admundsen's 1911 expedition to the South Pole.  Theatergoers get involved by moving around the space as the actors perform.

Admission is by a cash-only donation of $10 to $25, and performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and June 8-9.  The SandBox is at 9816 NE Second Ave., Miami Shores. Visit the PlayGround's site for more info.
