Color and Light Theatre Ensemble to Present THINGS TO RUIN at Surf Dog's Sports Grill, 1/11

After a six month run of recent show The Pokémusical, Color and Light Theatre Ensemble will bring a one-night presentation of Joe Iconis' "Things to Ruin" to Southern California.

"Things to Ruin" is an incendiary collection of songs by Kleban and Larson Award Winner Joe Iconis (SMASH, The Black Suits and Bloodsong of Love). The songs present a slew of fears, loves, insecurities and radical ideas wrapped up into an evening of theatre set in a bar. Thus, this performance will take place in one as well - a musical theatre experience far away from Hammerstein and friends.

The show is a theatrical rock concert about human beings who are messy, emotional, drugged up, knocked down, inspired, electric and who don't have nearly enough time to cause the kind of commotion they so desperately need to cause. The show rocks with an occasionally profane and always heartfelt explosion of music and high drama.

"Things to Ruin" features direction and musical staging by Joanna Syiek (Broadway World Nomination - Best Direction, The Pokémusical) with musical direction by Jennifer Lin. The cast includes Emily Arkuss, Jeff Buco, Ben Burch, Samantha Eve, Ari Gwasdoff, Josh Hillinger, Tyler Ledon, Katharine McDonough, Jamie Mills, Kelsey Schulte, and Kristofer Sundquist.

This special event presentation of "Things to Ruin" will be on January 11, 2014 at 9:00PM. The production will take place at Surf Dog's Sports Grill located at 5932 Warner Ave, Huntington Beach, CA 92649. Tickets and more information via
