For a good time call....

Hey, there is a great little show that is produced by a small group in Newtown.  They have pulled together some talented performers to bring music and comedy together on the stage in the Edmond Town Hall theatre.  They call their shows:

They have been doing these shows for over a year and their season run is never more than six or seven shows long.  I discovered them through a friend and have become familiar with the producers and performers. Their shows are similar in style to "The Prairie Home Companion" on NPR, a host, or MC opens up the program and introduces performances by an exceptionally talented house band, scripted comedy read as radio plays, and a special musical guest.  Their last show in September featured an amazing performance by artist Vaneese Thomas, daughter of R&B legend Rufus Thomas. It was then that  I realized this little radio show didn't feel little anymore.

If you are in the area Saturday night, stop by and see what you've been missing.  Click on the poster for the link to their website.

The other reason to go is my debut as part of the writing team for the comedy segment of the performance.  I have been politely hounding the producer to include me in the writers meetings so I could see how it comes together.  I wanted to see if I could fit in and contribute in some way.  Well, putting the pest in persistence (not funny, I know) enabled me to interest them in a concept or 2.  I will be a credited writer for this show, though if you blink during the performance you may miss my contribution.  No matter, I am just happy to have wedged my foot in the door, and wedged my tongue in my cheek as well. 

Have I piqued your curiosity? The first person to send me a note will get a pair of tickets to Saturday's show.


  1. I'd like to go save the tickets for s/o else
    your bud

  2. I cant be there , but would love to see the show. break a leg. (and I dont mean that in a show business kinda way, "Fur-Ged-haboudit")

  3. Thanks to everyone who noticed the misspelling on the link to the commission (and your well-wishes). All fixed
