It's getting warmer! You know what that means, right? Cookouts, sports, parties, and Shadowbox Live's annual greatest hits show, The Best of Shadowbox Live opening at the Shadowbox Live Building at 503 S. Front Street on May 26th!

Relive your favorite moments from the past season and catch up on what you missed with The Best of Shadowbox Live 2016. Only the best sketches and songs make it into this two-hour season-highlight show.

"The Best of Shadowbox Live is always an audience favorite," says Julie Klein, Shadowbox Live's Marketing Director. "For our long time patrons, I think they enjoy trying to guess which sketches and songs from the past year of shows will make it into the Best of performances. And for first timers, this is a perfect show to start with because you'll be seeing only our best material!"

And the line up this year is jam packed with the most popular raucous comedy and rocking tunes from Shadowbox Live's last season of shows, 50 Shades of Shadowbox 2016, Screamers 2015, and Reckless 2015!

"It's been an exceptionally good year for our sketch comedy and rock 'n' roll shows," says Klein. "So much so that we had a tough time narrowing down the list for The Best of Shadowbox 2016. Trust me, whether you're a returning fan, or a brand new one, this is one show you do not want to miss!"

Identity Theft Retribution Program - Identity theft is a real problem, but we've got the solution!
