The evening was a blast with host ERIC DAVIS heading up a long line of variety performers/clowns.
The first act of the evening was CIRKUS LUNA. A wild band of gypsy performers try and make you laugh.
Directly from their website:
“Hailing from East Molvenia, Cirkus Luna may be the worst circus act ever to perform in public. Nothing this family troupe does comes remotely close to demonstrating skill.”
So needless to say they had an idea to get their two lovely ladies to do a little ‘strip’ show. They wouldn’t go for it.
They got all naked and left the stage. I have decided not to post these embarrassing photographs. (see me later!)
Next to appear was the duo:
Mark Jaster and Sabrina Mandell from the Happenstance Theatre.
In the tradition of Burns & Allen, Ball & Arnaz, Seeley & Fields,
this offbeat couple brings their baggage to the stage
in harmonies from Between-the-Wars
and cheery songs of the Great Depression.
Next onstage is a wild and funny:
“CLIFF” (Barbara Ann Michaels)
A volunteer or two would help make this music rock!
Directed by Deborah Kaufman
THIS IS BOB
with Richard Harrington and Laura Walton.
A title that gives away the story to be told!
DON’T EVER TELL ANYONE WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS HOUSE
To introduce all the acts one by one was the wonderful joke and riddle rattling Eric Davis
Leah Abel and Olivia Lehrman
Audience members were invited up to help the battle continue.
