TALES FROM THE VERGE: FAKIN' IT
"Fakin' It" will feature a collection of Bozeman actors, playwrights, comedians, and authors, and everyday citizens recounting true stories from their lives in front of a live audience. Touching, funny, embarrassing, exciting, thought-provoking and entirely true. Host Ryan Cassavaugh and others will explore the evening's theme of "Fakin' It" in a series of short stories they never intended to tell in public. Posers come clean in this "Tales" expose!
Tales From The Verge: Fakin' It will play for one extended weekend only, Thursday-Saturday at 8pm from May 4-6. Tix for this show are only $14 and can be purchased online at vergetheater.com or in person at Cactus Records in Downtown Bozeman. Don't miss this celebration of community and story at Verge Theater. We're located at 2304 North 7th at Bozeman's extremely funny North end!
Local playwright, Ryan Cassavaugh has done it again, upping the ante on his own madcap adventure in writing. With the help of local musician, Joe Knapp, they have created this all original psychedelic rock musical that will be performed using life-sized puppets!
Directed by Sadie Cassavaugh (Row After Row, Gift of the Magi, Robin Hood and Three Glorious Weeks), this musical tells the story of two counter-culture bikers in the late 1960s on a voyage to discover the real America, but who soon find themselves embroiled with a devilish cult trying to take over the world! This world premiere psychedelic horror/comedy/rock- &-roll musical performed with life sized puppets and featuring a live rock band is Equal parts Easy Rider, Rocky Horror, Hair, and Rosemary's Baby.
Freak Out stars Ryan Lawrence Flynn, Pol Llovet, Steven Harris-Weiel, Ty Gardner, Sadie Cassavaugh, Wren Garverick, Leandra Hill, Leyla Osman-Kirschner, and Harry Jahnke, acting, singing, and puppeteering their way across America. This production will run for three weekends, Fridays and Saturdays May 12 - May 27 at 8pm. Tix for this show are only $14 and can be purchased online at vergetheater.com or in person at Cactus Records in Downtown Bozeman. Don't miss this World Premier at Verge Theater! We're located at 2304 North 7th at Bozeman's extremely puppety North end! Mature audiences only!
MONDAY NIGHT IMPROV ON THE VERGE
Recover from your weekend with Improv Comedy! Join us as we offer up a Monday Night sacrifice of the most daring, death defying type of live theater there is: Improv! We call it Improv on the Verge! Improv Monday Nights feature The Bozeman Improverts who will beguile you with their laser-like wits, sharp tongues, and obnoxiously large heads. These masterful, main stage players improvise sketches built around audience suggestions, play improv games similar to those you see on Who's Line Is It Anyway, and perform long form improv that is basically making up short plays on the spot. You have to experience this to believe it!! It's a mere $7 to get in and laugh like hell at our team of S.W.A.T. trained Improv Players. (S.W.A.T. = SouthWest Alternative Theater).
Our upcoming last show of the regular season is Monday, May 15. Monday Night Improv begins at 7pm. Reservations can be made online atvergetheater.com or in person at Cactus Records in Downtown Bozeman. Verge Theater is located at 2304 N. 7th Ave, across from Murdoch's, on the extremely hysterical North Side of Bozeman.
