Thanks to Amie Elyn for doing box office, Courtney Hopkin and Jericho Thorp for various house manager kinds of assistance, and Dano Johnson and Kyle Henry for battling vainly against the video projector. Your help is much appreciated.

I should mention here that two items were announced at the top of the order that had to be dropped because of uncooperative video equipment. Those pieces were Puppetry Show does Julius Caesar, by Puppetry Show, and The Look of Pressure, by Dana Garner. Let's hope we get them into a future show.

special Out of Bounds No Shame
Friday, September 26th, 2003
- [The Hideout]
This Friday, there is an extra-special No Shame Theatre that you have to attend. If not, I'll put you on my list of not nice people. And we all know what happens to not nice people. They get hit by ambulances rushing little puppies to animal hospitals. You don't want that to happen to you, do you?

So once again, there's a No Shame this Friday. It's special because a) you will be there being nice, and b) it's part of the Out of Bounds Improv Comedy Festival and Miniature Golf Tournament. We'll have performers from all over the state and beyond, but there will also be plenty of spots those of you who aren't already performing in the festival. And your participation in No Shame will entitle you to compete in the Miniature Golf tournament on Saturday.

So, I hope you've got material to perform. Or maybe you just want to come check out the show. That would be groovy as well, because I have a feeling it's going to be a really good one.

Friday, September 26
12:00 p.m. (script submission begins at 11:30)
The Hideout, 617 Congress
