30 Neo-Futurists Plays
March 1, 2019 @ 7:00pm
Verge is bringing us into spring with one or two spectacularly fantastic performances for laugh-lovers of all ages! Here’s a look at what’s happening at “The Little Black Box on the Edge (of Bozeman).”
Kicking off March, Verge Teen Theater will present 30 Neo-Futurists Plays from Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind (30 Plays in 60 Minutes!) Created by Greg Allen, this ensemble experiment takes the stage Friday, March 1st at 7pm, and Saturday, March 2nd at 3pm and 7pm.
In the show, each two-minute play is performed in random order with an interactive audience. Come ready to play! An onstage 60-minute timer keeps everyone honest. This collection of 30 comic, tragic, personal, and abstract plays will be unlike any other night at the theater you have experienced! Tickets are $9 in advance, also available at the door at additional cost. All ages.
The Monday night Improv on the Verge shows are sure to bring about the belly laughs! With a mixture of short-form games (like you see on the popular tv show Whose Line Is It Anyway?) and long-form stories, everything you see on stage is created on the spot using audience suggestions. With crowd favorites, the Bozeman Improverts AND some new faces, you won’t want to miss the best way to start your week. Come get cheap thrills for your laugh hole with advanced tickets for only $9, also available at the door at additional cost. Upcoming shows are set for March 11th and 25th. All performances start at 7pm. Ages 17+.
But hey, what about the kids? Verge’s Silly Moose Comedy Improv gives families extra chances to laugh together. After all, laughter decreases stress hormones. It also increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, improving our resistance to disease. And of course, laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals, giving people an overall sense of well-being. The next show is set for Saturday, March 23rd at 3pm. Tickets are $9 in advance, also available at the door at additional cost.
And back by popular demand, Verge’s 8th Annual Comedy Revue is set for March 22nd through April 6th. Roku Like a Hurricane takes over the Little Black Box on Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm. On display will be the players’ idea for the ideal comedy streaming service with hilarious, original, never before seen sketches. In the style of Saturday Night Live, they’ll present their laugh-out-loud show just for you. The actors, writers, and directors of the Comedy Revue include Garrison Choitz, Ty Gardner, Molly Hannan, Emmy Harvey and John Townsend-Mehler. Local, fresh, and funny as hell! Tickets are only $15 in advance, also available at the door at additional cost.
