Majestic Madness @ Majestic Theatre
Aug 29 @ 7:30 pm

What is Majestic Madness? In short, it’s a quarterly community building and entertainment event designed to inspire folks to jump into writing and acting for theatre.

How? Well, we beg local writers (or want to be writers) to pen short 8-10 page sketches around a prompt. They send their plays to the folks here at the Majestic the day before and we print off a copy for each character in the show.

The night of the show, writer, actors, and patrons show up at the theatre at the appointed time and our host jumps up on stage, explains the rules, and then randomly selects the first sketch of the evening. They then ask audience members to fill all the parts in the show by reading off the character descriptions and asking for volunteers, who jump up on stage. Then, they do the play. And on to the next one!

Usually, these sketches are funny, but serious pieces are welcome as well, but should be labeled as such.

Our goal is to get folks who may secretly be wishing they could WRITE a little show and have folks perform it, but haven’t written a full show yet or are scared of the commitment, to try it out. The same is true for ACTORS who can’t commit to a show, or are scared.

Think of it as a karaoke-ish form of theatre. If you flop, no biggie, you’re offstage in five minutes and can laugh it off.

But what if you’re great!? What if your play (or acting) is lauded by all and finally realize YOU CAN DO THIS!

Well, that’s how we hope it goes.

At the same time, you’ll get to know other actors, writers, and theatrefolk. WIN WIN WIN.

So come on out for MAJESTIC MADNESS!

Email jimbo@majestic.org for the writing prompt or for more information.

$5 Admission goes to support The Majestic Theatre.

Majestic Reader’s Theatre – Closer @ Majestic Lab

Majestic Reader’s Theatre presents

Closer

by Patrick Marber

Directed by Johanna Spencer

August 30 • 3pm & 7pm 

Tickets: Adults $10, Members/Students/Seniors $8

 

Four lives intertwine over the course of four and a half years in this densely plotted, stinging look at modern love and betrayal. Dan, an obituary writer, meets Alice, a stripper, after an accident in the street. Eighteen months later, they are a couple, and Dan has written a novel inspired by Alice. While posing for his book jacket cover, Dan meets Anna, a photographer. He pursues her, but she rejects his advances despite their mutual attraction. Larry, a dermatologist, “meets” Dan in an Internet chat room. Dan, obsessing over Anna, pretends to be her and has cybersex with Larry. They arrange to meet the next day at an aquarium. Larry arrives and so too, coincidentally, does the real Anna. This sets up a series of pass-the-lover scenes in which this quartet struggle to find intimacy but can’t seem to get closer.
