ANT Fest 2013:
THE PRESIDENT PLAYS, PART 1
JUNE 24 @ 7PM, $15
Written by David Haan
Directed by Liz Thaler
Watch our first fifteen Presidents die serving their country, each in a different way. From absurd to poignant, join us for a warped pseudo-history of America in this epic short play cycle that puts a macabre twist on the nation's highest office.
This performance comes to you as part of ANT Fest, Ars Nova's month-long Festival of All New Talent!

ANT Fest 2013:
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEEPWATER HORIZON
JUNE 25 @ 7PM, $15
Created by Trey Tatum
Music by James Dobinson
Directed by Bridget Leak
Part puppet show, part zombie movie, this docu-drama/slasher flick mash-up combines first-hand accounts, newsreel footage and lo-fi charm to explore the 2010 Gulf Coast Oil Spill through the lens of George Romero's original Night of the Living Dead. A foxy boxing match that is both slippery and toxic!

GOLDEN BABY: GOOD POINT!
JUNE 27 @ 7PM, $15
Created & Performed by Dana Clinkman, Henry Melcher, Evan Watkins & Ryann Weir
Directed by Christopher Bowser & Andrew Neisler
Since training at Second City as pimply teenagers, this sketch/devised theater group has grown into a wonderfully dysfunctional family. Now that they're all in New York, they've created a new sketch comedy-meets-short form play, self-described as polished, smart and weird. The kind of stuff that makes the fam laugh at the dinner table.

SHOWGASM: ANT Fest Edition
JUNE 27 @ 9PM, $5
What is Showgasm, you ask? It's joy realized, a perm that WORKS, heated drama in a high school show choir. Or more simply put, a raucous variety show with performances ranging from hilarious to titillating to utterly inappropriate. Come. You've never looked better!
WARNING: May lead to spontaneous singing, dancing, and/or an unexpected climax.
Lineup: Jermaine Fowler, Adam Lerman, QWAN, Dance Cartel

THE IMAGINARY MENAGERIE
JUNE 28 @ 7PM, $15
Created & Performed by Kate Douglas
Directed by Hunter Bird
Music Director Matthew Marsh
If David Lynch wrote a musical puppet movie this might be it! Katherine arrives in a house at the end of the world, where three talking paintings guide her through her memories to help her recall where she's come from and understand where she's going. All with the help of her friend Lucy, who happens to be a deer head.

ANT Fest 2013:
TRAPEZE HERO
JUNE 29 @ 7PM, $15
Created by Fight or Flight Theater Company
Written by Dan Loeser
Directed by John Behlmann
A scrappy trapeze drifter blows into town; but he don't trapeze the way folks trapeze 'round here. Prepare yourself for a one-of-a-kind evening performed entirely on the low-flying trapeze. It's Footloose meets The Karate Kid meets Cirque du Soleil meets Romeo and Juliet. Tina Turner was wrong, we do need another hero... a Trapeze Hero.
