A Lifetime of Regret

A Lifetime of Regret is a drinking game/trivia challenge/staged reading of some of the best of the worst to ever grace your television screen: Lifetime Channel movies. Each performance is a completely different script brought to life by a talented team of improvisors who have already started one drink ahead of their audience. Yes, it’s technically scripted – but the experience is nothing that anyone can truly prepare for.

OUR AUGUST FILM SELECTION IS:

“GIRL POSITIVE” – If ever there were a network to produce the ultimate If-You-Have-Sex-You-Will-Get-an-STD movie, it’s Lifetime.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to drink to have fun and watch a funny show.

NOTE: Outside beverages not allowed in the theatre. No one under 18 admitted. Adult content and language. Really adult. We mean it.

Tales Told by Idiots

Tales Told By Idiots is so much more than your average open mic night – it’s a space to connect with new ideas, art, and terrible anecdotes. Anyone can sign up to share a story, perform a scripted work, sing a song, or play something original. The only catch is, you’ve got a different theme to riff on every night!

NOTE FOR SUBMISSIONS:
All those wishing to perform may submit up to two (2) pieces for the evening. Depending on the volume of submissions, only one may be performed. Each piece must be under 5-7 minutes in length.
