Friends, it is that time of year when the Peripatetic Players dust off their ragamuffins and saddle up their slipperywidgets…
IT’S TIME TO PUT ON A SHOW!
This summer, the Players put their inimitable spin on two star-crossed tales of daring and destiny. Although Thumper and Samuel are still in heated negotiations over what constitutes canonical entertainment, be assured that SOMETHING will happen… but even we are not entirely sure how it will all turn out.
Will Samuel achieve his dream of becoming a renowned and respected tragedian?
Will Guy Hank be able to power this hunk of junk to hyperspace?
Will Princess Gwen be able to climb down from that balcony?
Will Meekins stare down the hilt of a rapier with both eyes open and a minimum of whimpering?
What is Thumper doing with that bucket?
We will endeavor to answer these enduring questions and more… BUT THAT’S NOT ALL…
For the first time ever, the Players invite YOU — yes, you! The one in front of the screen! — to partake in a Particularly Obstinate Obstacle Course! Run, hop, skip, jump, saunter, sashay, stroll or simply stumble your way through 20 outrageous obstacles delightfully designed to test your physical, mental and theatrical vim and vigor. This Thon to out-thon all Thons is like no Thon you’ve ever Thonned. Thonestly. Don your most eccentric costumes, pull out all your stops, and join us as we face our least known fears over and through obstacles both literal and metaphorical!
You can sign up to pledge a player or play the course here!
If you’d rather spectate, cheer on, and/or picnic — be sure to come out to Lake Merritt on July 24 for an afternoon of comradely challenge and comic competition. No reservations required!
