It's an old-fashioned musical comedy - but not.
by Jeffrey Ellis - Jun 22, 2015
Sometimes it seems there is so much theater happening that it's difficult to keep track of it all. From personal experience, despite all the datebooks, smart phones, tablets, desktop computers and laptops...it's hard to keep everything straight in this wacky business of the show.

Visit ronglick.com for contact details, review copies, photos, and an author bio. Ron Glick's Epic Fantasy Series Creates New Impact. 'Three' in Print and Kindle Format. Third Book in the Godslayer Cycle Releases on July 1, 2015. Ron Glick made his debut into fantasy fiction in 2011 with the publication of 'One,' the first volume of the Godslayer Cycle. Since then, Ron has proven himself a diverse voice in literature with 'The Oz-Wonderland' and 'Chaos Rising series,' a dozen volumes of Ron El's Comic Book Trivia, and even a political expose about corruption in Montana, 'U.S. Political Prisoner Since 2004.' Now, Ron returns to the series that started it all for the third installment in his nine volume epic destined to redefine divinity within fantasy fiction, 'Three.' In the Godslayer Cycle, two rival groups of Gods - The Pantheon and the New Order - vie for the faith of mortal souls throughout the world of Na'Ril. With the eldest group on the verge of extinction, nine mystical swords capable of slaying Gods are created, but lost within the mortal realm. Nathaniel Goodsmith is selected as the Avatar of the Pantheon to seek out the swords and use them on their rivals before the New Order can discover their purpose. In 'Three,' Nathaniel has returned home to await the awakening of the third sword, but he is shocked to find the third sword following him there. But this sword is unlike any of the others that have come before. Three is not a sword that controls perception or elemental power, but instead gives its wielder mastery over time itself. What better way to destroy a Godslayer than to send him to a time before he ever was one? And without the Godslayer in the present, who can possibly stand against a conspiracy of immortals seeking revenge against their errant parents, the Gods themselves? 'Highly engaging and engrossing, with interesting and believable characters...' - Kyra Dune, on 'One' 'This tale is woven with the matrix of mystery, myth, magic and mayhem and I loved every minute of it, being hooked from the start.' - Julie Elizabeth Powell, on 'Two' Ron Glick (born January 20, 1969) is a community activist, and is presently active in several charitable enterprises. He was born in Plainville, KS. After living in various states, he currently lives in Kalispell, MT. He is the author of 'The Godslayer Cycle,' 'Chaos Rising,' 'The Oz-Wonderland series,' and Ron El's 'Comic Book Trivia,' as well as having written a screenplay adaptation of 'The Wizard In Wonderland.' Additionally, he created the Golden Age Preservation Project as a means of making Golden Age comics more accessible to modern audiences. His expose, 'U.S. Political Prisoner Since 2004,' broke him away from his fictional works to shed light upon political corruption in Montana. Ron loves contact and welcomes input on his work through his Twitter accounts or through direct contact on his site.

As I sat shaking my head in disbelief of what I was seeing and hearing on the Blank Canvas Theatre stage, those around me were howling with uncontrollable laughter. What I was seeing was ridiculous, unbelievable, and basically poorly performed. I'm not sure what was making my audience-mates laugh so hard, but I heard one of the young ladies behind me confide that she had just wet her pants and then I got sprayed by a shower of beer that came forth from her companion's nose as he exploded in laughter.
