Shelter Bridge Theater Presents MY BIG, THICK SCHTICK 7/9-24

My Big, Thick Schtick, a collection of comedic shorts, will make its New York premiere for three consecutive weekends July 9 - July 24 at the Shetler Studios Bridge Theatre. Written by Joseph Samuel Wright and directed by Samantha Shechtman, the show features six actors and a puppet performing multiple roles in a variety show-inspired comedy replete with drag, dancing, and debauchery. Tickets are $10 and are now on sale through

My Big, Thick Schtick features original music by Brandon James Gwinn, choreography by Laura L. Miller, the puppetry of Julia Darden, and stars Kathleen Choe, Scott McLean Harrison, Alex Michaels, Aidan O'Shea, Jack Raymond, and Xavier Rice.

Campy, catty, and uncontainable, My Big, Thick Schtick includes snipping sorority "girls," buffed boys, and the greatest battle of all time: Joan Crawford vs. Bette Davis. The night features "Welcome to My Haze," a spoof of the spoof of Brenda Dickson's infamous lifestyle video, "Jack in Vain," the fable of four ambitious bartenders competing for their chance to bed a pop star, "Hot Mess High Tea," the sensation of a sorority tea with a trannie at the table, "Mommy Drinkest," a male Mommy Dearest faces his adopted daughter, and "What Ever Happened to Baby in the Corner?" a No Exit with Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, and Vivien Leigh trapped together. Schtick is a one-night extravaganza with song, dance, drag, camp, shirtless boys, a taxidermied cat, and an otter puppet as host.
