This award winning original play written by LBCC faculty examines political viewpoints and gun issues. Created in the slapstick style of Commedia dell' Arte, this play makes fun of extreme conservatives and liberals alike. If you enjoy raunchy slapstick comedy, this is the show for you.

This play is entered as a participating production in the Kennedy Center/ American College Theater Festival which will be held at the University of Oregon this year.

Auditions will be held Oct. 1 & 2 @6pm in the Russell Tripp Performance Center. The auditions will be held in a "workshop" environment. You will learn Commedia character-types, physicality, and humor.

You will have a ton of fun! Guaranteed! For more information contact Dan Stone
