Radio: 30

From press release:

In Radio :30, a veteran “voice guy” named Ron (Chris Earle) is recording a 30 second radio ad with the help of his faithful recording engineer Mike (Paul Constable). Between takes, Ron shares the tricks of his trade with the audience, inadvertently revealing how the polished dishonesty of his profession has infected his personal life. Haunted by his conscience, Ron’s silver tongue begins to betray him…

This piece plays at the Tarragon Mainspace. Performances: July 03 07:00 PM, July 05 01:15 PM, July 07 04:45 PM, July 09 05:15 PM, July 11 09:45 PM, July 12 07:00 PM, July 13 02:15 PM

Hazards

From press release:

Inspired by the warning signs we encounter every day, HAZARDS dives into the chaotic soup of our minds, exposing our worries, from the personal to the universal, and our deep-seated fear of humiliation if we are “found out.” A performance piece in the absurdist tradition, HAZARDS combines spoken word with sometimes-frenetic, sometimes-beseeching movement, bringing us face-to-face with the question of our own significance in the universe. And the answer is: YES!

This piece plays at the Helen Gardiner Phelan Playhouse. Performances: July 05 05:15 PM, July 06 07:30 PM, July 07 09:00 PM, July 09 03:00 PM, July 10 09:15 PM, July 11 12:15 PM, July 13 11:00 PM

Inge Snapshots

From press release:

Can coming to terms with the past bring hope for the future? Welcome to INGE SNAPSHOTS: MID-AMERICA MID-CENTURY. Playwright William Inge explored the same ground in two different versions of the same story – one a youthful reunion set against the optimism of early 1950’s America, and one through a more mature lens, set against the burgeoning change of the late 1950’s. INGE SNAPSHOTS offers an elegiac portrait of small town life, the fullness of first love and its aftermath. Presenting both plays with the same acting company, in a twist on the old model of repertory theatre, The Remnants ask the question: How does a reunion change when a pair of lovers reunite later in their lives? How does time affect feelings of loss and regret?

This piece plays at the Helen Gardiner Phelan Playhouse. Performances: July 03 06:30 PM, July 05 08:45 PM, July 07 01:30 PM, July 10 11:00 PM, July 11 07:45 PM, July 12 01:45 PM, July 13 12:00 PM

DABDA

From press release:

DABDA invites you to join these young people on an evening they will never forget. The seven friends escape a posh family Fourth of July ball – and a promise to keep an eye on a little sister – to attend an impromptu underground beach soiree, strictly for teenagers only. The night that follows is filled with innocence and temptation, inhibitions, independence, and love. Ira and her friends push their limits in hopes of discovering freedom. But the plot thickens as they begin to understand the consequences of their actions the morning after Independence Day, and find out there is more to learn about growing up than just being free…

This piece plays at Factory Theatre Mainspace. Performances: July 05 10:30 PM, July 06 09:15 PM, July 07 08:45 PM, July 09 01:15 PM, July 10 12:00 PM, July 12 11:00 PM, July 14 03:30 PM

Burnt… and Toasted!

From press release:

Once burnt, where do you find the fire and passion to rediscover self-worth? BURNT…and toasted! is a one woman musical show based on the life of performer Donna Greenberg. Through her journey, Donna discovers a courage that she never knew she possessed, and with it rises to rebuild a life filled with dreams she had never dared to dream before, where success is the sweetest revenge. BURNT…and toasted! is the story of a joyous mid-life rebirth.

This piece plays at Tarragon Extra Space. Performances: July 05 11:00 PM, July 06 12:00 PM, July 08 10:45 PM, July 09 05:15 PM, July 11 10:30 PM, July 12 07:30 PM, July 13 01:45 PM

Contest Rules: 
(these will remain the same for each Fringe contest, so take the time to read the list once and you’ll be set)

  • The only acceptable form of entry for the contest is by email, sent to contests@mooneyontheatre.com (Mooney on Theatre will never use your email address for anything other than to reply to the specific contest you entered, and we certainly would never sell it or anything like that)
  • Each show counts as its own contest, and each entry must be in a separate email. So, if 5 shows are giving tickets away on a given day, and you want to try for each of them, then you need to send 5 emails.
  • Entrants must be available on the day and time listed in the contest. The tickets are available for that showing only, and cannot be transferred to another date.
  • The winning entrants will be chosen by a random drawing.
  • Winners will be notified by email by 9pm on the day of contest closing and need to confirm their attendance 10am AT THE LATEST the following morning so that their names can be given to the theatre company for tickets to be set aside.
  • Photo I.D. may be required to claim the winning tickets.
  • Tickets must be picked up 60 to 30 minutes before show time at the venue box office. The box office reserves the right to release any tickets not picked up 15 minutes before show time.
  • We ask that all winners provide us with a quick blurb on what they thought of the show, either in the comments section of the press release on Mooney on Theatre, or if it has already been reviewed by Mooney on Theatre in the comments section of that.
