“Have Yourself a Merry Potter Christmas” Improv Show is Tomorrow!

Posted Sunday, December 11th, 2011

Are you struggling to get through the end of the semester? Have the many assignments removed all joy from your life? Has the constant studying left you a withered shell of your former self? Well, I have good news for you. Joyous Chaos is having a super special awesome show tomorrow night (Monday, December 12th).

And what is the theme, you might ask? Well, let’s just say it’s pretty magical. It’ll cast a spell on you. Were the show an animal, it would be a Hippogriff. Okay, that last one wasn’t very subtle. That’s right, the theme is HARRY POTTER! Yeah! Wizards and muggles alike are invited to attend. Is one theme not enough for you? Well, it also has a CHRISTMAS theme! You like Christmas right? Of course you do!

Here are some details to make sure you get to the right place at the right time:
Location: LaDue Auditorium
Admission: FREE (that means no cost!!)
When: Monday, December 12th
Doors open 9:00pm, Show starts 9:30pm

Make sure to attend and get your fill of the magical Christmas improv spirit!
Oh, and here are some posters that I helped design for the event:

Be sure not to miss this show!


Ten-Minute Plays Review

Posted Saturday, December 10th, 2011

As everyone knows, the Ten-Minute Play Festival was last night. It was a blast. The house was packed (there were even people sitting on the floor!) and with good reason. The night consisted of seven plays and an intermission. The plays were Variations on the Death of Trotsky, Family Names, The Brown Shoes, Curse the Darkness, After, The Still Alarm, and The History of Why the Chicken Crossed the Road.  My personal favorites were The Still Alarm, Variations on the Death of Trotsky, and the admittedly strange The Brown Shoes. 

Overall, I enjoyed the plays. A long play is great to see, but having seven shorter plays like this really helps to showcase the talent of a larger number of people. There were several new faces on the stage who I thought did a spectacular job.

If you missed the event, then I feel bad for you, son. I’ve got 99 problems, but missing one of the most enjoyable events of the semester ain’t one.

But in all seriousness, congratulations to everyone who preformed, directed, and helped out.

I didn’t take any pictures myself, but here are a few production photos taken by the illustrious David Ulmer:

Ten-Minute Plays Are Tomorrow!

Posted Thursday, December 8th, 2011

That’s right, folks. It’s the day you’ve all been waiting for. The fantastic Ten-Minute Plays are happening tomorrow night! If you’re a fan of enjoyment and having fun, then this is the event for you! This whole thing is only happening tomorrow, Friday, December 9th.

You want details? You can’t handle the details! Actually, you can.

It’s going on tomorrow night at the Greenville College Factory Theatre (same place as the last play!). Doors open at 7:00pm and show starts at 7:30pm. I’d recommend getting there before it starts, since there are sure to be a lot of people attending. And definitely do not arrive late. When the plays are short, a lot can happen in a few minutes! You want to make sure not to miss any of the action.

How much would you pay for such an event? Ten dollars? Fifty dollars? A hundred dollars? A thousand dollars? A million dollars?! Actually, just one. One single dollar. That is a ridiculously low price for such quality entertainment. One dollar. Wow!

Tickets can be purchased at the DC during lunch tomorrow, or simply at the door on the night of the show.

If you are curious about what the shows, actors, and directors are, check out the list here.

As you can see, it is going to be quite the social event of the weekend. Take some time out from worrying about finals and the lengthy 1.5 weeks left of school, and enjoy some awesome acting.

See you there!

Complete Works Auditions Tomorrow!

Posted Monday, November 28th, 2011

Hey, everybody! Did you all have an awesome Thanksgiving break? I sure did. Make sure not to forget that the auditions for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) is TOMORROW, Tuesday, November 29th from 5pm to 8pm at the Factory Theater.

What is the play about? Well, imagine taking all of Shakespeare’s plays, condensing them into 90 minutes, and making them hysterical. Yes, it is exactly as awesome as it sounds.

The theater is looking for six male actors who are “versatile, energetic, and hilarious.” If this sounds like you, then you should audition! If you want to audition, make sure to stop by Dietzman 210 (right above the awesome Jo’s Java) to sign up for a time slot and grab an audition packet. Also, make sure to bring a can do attitude and a smile!

If you have any questions, you can write on the event’s Facebook wall here or e-mail the super cool director at

Once again, this is a really fun play to be in. If you’re a fan of Shakespeare, you’ll like it. If you’re not a fan, you’ll love it.

Good luck to everyone who auditions tomorrow. May the Shakespearian force be with you… always.


Complete Works Informational Meeting

Posted Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

For those of you who don’t know, next semester the theatre will put on a production of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged). Due to scheduling conflicts, the production will take place on February 29 (which is really soon). Therefore, the auditions for this show are taking place this semester. Wow! Also, the show will feature an all-male cast. Fear not, females! Another show, Quilters, will feature an all-female cast and will have auditions on February 2.

If you are interested at all if being a part of this comedy, make sure that you attend the informational meeting today, the 15th, in LaDue Auditorium from 5:30-6pm. Since the show is coming up so quickly, it is necessary to have a preliminary meeting like this before the actual auditions take place. Again, it’s only half an hour. Don’t feel an obligation to stick with the show if you attend the meeting. It’s simply informational.

Oh, and did I mention that there are cookies there? Free cookies!

If you’re interested in being part of the production, but are not able to make it to the meeting, be sure to contact the awesome Jamie Fuller and schedule a time to talk. Don’t worry, she doesn’t bite.

For all of you who audition, I offer thee good luck.
