THE GIRL OF THE GOLDEN WEST
JUNE 17 @ 7PM, $15
Created by Rady&Bloom Collective Playmaking
Adapted & Directed by Jeremy Bloom
Music by Catherine Brookman, Ellen O'Meara & Joe White

Before the West was won there was one girl, a gold rush, a gun shot, a first kiss. Rady&Bloom blows the dust off an American classic heralded as the first Spaghetti Western. Featuring a genre-defying original score, this new musical sheds light on our nation's forgotten periphery.

SHOWGASM: ANT Fest Edition
JUNE 20 @ 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!

ANT Fest 2013:
DEBUTANTE
JUNE 21 @ 7PM, $15
Created & Directed by Annie Tippe
Written by Ryann Weir
Four heiresses living in decadence during the Great Depression straddle 1930's feminine grace and 1980's camp and opulence. This comedic show is a loving portrait of poor little rich girls coming of age as they're presented to the world.

This sketch-pop-dance odyssey offers a look at the absurdity of humans. From R.E.M. to Nicki Minaj, Russell Brand to the Pope (not to mention plenty of monkeys), wild times are in store in this fast-paced, down 'n dirty dance through the racy rainforest.
