This week at Odd Duck Studio: June 27-June 29, 2012

Midnight Mystery Theater: Pig ‘n’ Soap

After over a half year hiatus, the mighty Midnight Mystery Theater radio-style comedy troupe returns with 2 NEW John Ruoff scripts, a new pianist (Josh Henderson), new sound FX guy (Jasen Britcher) at a NEW time!!! One night only, $8 at the door. Try our special cocktail: the well-adjusted screwdriver. This twisted pair concerns writers & actors. In The Case of The Missing Soap Opera, things have been shaken up behind the scenes of “All My Illegitmate Children”, enough to inspire… oooh, homicide. In Case of The Missing Ham, TV tough guy Ted Tosterone treks to England to shoot a film at stately Dropbottom Manor, only to have his plans compromised by some poisoned pork!!! The unusual suspects include Charles Crowley, Erin Day, Tony Driscoll, Sarah Haskell, Chris Mathews, Jeff Nelson, & John Ruoff. Come on out!!! Without you, it’s just an expensive dress rehearsal…

Wednesday at 7:30pm.

    In 2011, your organization had to raise money to pay the rent, and now again in 2012? You do many great things at the Odd Duck Studio, but this lack of fiscal responsiblity for your non-profit does not build confidence with existing or potential new donors.
