Okay. So, really quick before I have to head off to the show that I’m about to tell you about.
Tonight, at the Bama Theatre at 8:30 (doors open at 8, bar opens at 7:30), and tonight only, there will be an original Halloween performance and variety show, Druid Dread Night. The event is on Facebook here.
As this is a completely original show plus variety show plus other things, I can’t really talk plot or whatnot much. The night does include a show by the band The Resident Evils (I believe that’s Mark Hughes Cobb’s current band name, a.k.a. whomever talented he could get for the show), a variety show at 9 p.m. with acts from members of the community including, I believe, some Pink Box Burlesque performance? I’m not 100 percent positive on that, though. Pretty sure, but not positive. There will also be a costume contest, so show up costumed for some prizes. And then, at the end, there will be a performance of an original, Tuscaloosa-centered horror story, “In the Bones.”
The show is $5 to get in, and the profits will go to help pay for art supplies in the city schools. It’s also an 18-plus show, so no children. That’s one reason I’m pretty sure we’re getting some PBB vaudeville, but I haven’t seen the variety show yet. Just my bits.
So, booze, theatre, costumes, ghost stories… Fun times! And, bonus, I’m in it! So, you should totally come watch if you’re in Tuscaloosa. In the meantime, I’m off to rehearsal.
8 p.m., Bama Theatre, tonight, $5, 18 or older. Come watch.
