AMAZING DAVE


AMAZING DAVE


Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm.
September 15 - September 30

Amazing Dave
11.00

*Ticket price includes service fee

All performances in the Planet Ant Black Box (2357 Caniff).

Planet Ant Theatre opens it 2017-18 season with Amazing Dave, an original one act comedy directed by Shawn Handlon and features members of the new Improv Colony Farm Team. 

Amazing Dave tells the stories of a con man who starts a doomsday cult and the group of followers who are gullible enough to believe he is a modern prophet who happens to know the exact date of society's impending collapse.

In a first for Planet Ant, this one act comedy also represents the pilot episode for what will be a 6 episode weekly, live sitcom that will run on Thursday nights in Ant Hall, starting in October. Each subsequent episode will chronicle the misadventures of Amazing Dave and his band of misfit followers.

Written by Shawn Handlon and the cast:
Tony Augusty
Jaclynn Cherry
Michael Duprey
Andi Maziarz
Jason Petterson
Sarah Wilder

We love giving aspiring performers a chance at some stage time. You can get your opportunity each week following the Home Team's Improv Monday performance.

The Ant Jam is a safe and inviting environment open to performers of all skill levels. Even if you have never improvised before you can feel comfortable playing in our Jam. Interested participants just need to put their name into the Jam Jar for a chance to play some improv games and do some long-form.

The Ant Jam is completely free, but we suggest arriving at 8pm for our Improv Monday show! At $5, it's the best entertainment deal in town.
