The Blitz is Back! Win tickets for this Saturday's one-time-only show
Post by dane101 on 6/20/2012 1:40pm
Madison's original one-day theatre event is making its triumphant return, revamped and raring to go, this Saturday, June 23 at the Bartell Theatre downtown - and this time, it's musical.
"Blitz: The Musical" will hit the stage at 8:00 p.m. and brings a new twist to the 24-hours-from-page-to-stage format by requiring that each author incorporate local surf-rock outfit Venus In Furs into their short plays.
Veteran Blitz authors and actors will join forces with newbies to create this always incredible and raucous night of theatre that Dane101 is proud to sponsor. And we'll be giving away a pair of tickets to see the show to a lucky winner every day this week!
If you'd like to win today's pair of tickets to see "Blitz: The Musical" just be the first to leave a comment with your full name and correctly answer the following question: Shakespeare's original/first theatre was just unearthed in London. What was it called?
Featured writers for this year's Blitz will be Christian Neuhaus, Buck Hakes, Matt Cibula, Matthew Schrader & Sarah Luedtke, Rob Matsushita, Doug Reed & Laszlo Danger Reed, and Megan Marsh-McGlone. Featured directors will be Monty Marsh-McGlone, Sam White, Steve Noll, Heather Renken, Greg Harris, Jess Evans, and Casey Grimm.
Specials guests the Divine Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will be selling raffle tickets for a drawing at the end of the show for fabulous cash prizes! Madison's Peach Pies Caburlesque will be cocktailing during the show, and the lobby bar and the mezzanine bar will both be open throughout the show. All proceeds from drink sales go directly to supporting the Bartell Theatre.
