While you're waiting for IRL theater to return (which Rich Smith wrote may happen late this year), virtual productions are a great way to support local artists and break up your Netflix routine for a bit. To give you a taste of what's on offer now, we're giving away free tickets to the following three shows. Read on for more details and to find out how to enter. Good luck!
GIVEAWAY #1 (Winner Selected)
Macha Theatre Works: 17 Minute Stories: All the Tracys
In addition to working within a time constraint, Macha Theatre Works' "17 Minute Stories" series of quick-bite solo shows also explores the very concept of time, or more specifically, how we end up where we do, and how we fumble through human existence in our own ways. This week's show, Tracy Leigh's "All the Tracys," centers around "one woman's mental health rollercoaster from Pentecostal life, to motherhood, to self-enlightenment."
GIVEAWAY #2 (Winner Selected)
Whim W'him: This Is Not The Little Prince
Whim W'Him retells Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince through the lens of Rene Magritte's classic surrealist painting "Ceci n'est pas une pipe," featuring music by Brian Lawlor and miniature art by Talia Silveri Wright, with filming and direction by movement photographer and videographer Quinn Wharton.
