Greetings, Shakerfans! We've definitely been busy these days, and it's time for a recap for those who've missed the news:
We have shows on Thursdays now! We perform almost every Thursday night (the exception being on the week of our monthly Saturday show) at 7PM at the Link. Tickets are still $5, and there's free snacks, as well as drinks sold. These shows differ from our Saturday shows (which are still on the 2nd Saturday of the month) in that they're themed for a more mature audience, and they vary completely in style from week to week.
Sometimes we're doing shortform with Shortform Showdown, sometimes we're doing longform like West of Shakespeare or SoapProv, sometimes there's stand-up comedy or a performance by Glenn & Casey's Stranger, Are You Smiling?, and sometimes we're trying out a brand-new, never-before-seen, completely off-the-wall format just because we can. They're still completely improvised and based on your suggestions and participation, so come out and see what new shenanigans we're cooking up with Comedy Thursdays at the Link!
We're working on fixing up the Black Box, trying to make it an even better performance zone not just for us, but for other events at the Link Centre, as well. Our setup undergoes a transformation on Comedy Thursdays, with tables, chairs, and the fakest flickering candles imaginable taking up the audience area rather than rows of seats. We've hung more posters, and our biggest addition is our slideshow that plays before the show. It's got posters, trivia about the Shakers, and some pics of our Thursday show formats, as well as some information about where to find us on the web. Come check it out! We're rather proud of it.
For more news on what we're doing on and off the web, be sure to check us out on Facebook! We do a lot of updating there these days, and that'll be the first place you see things like our posters and extra photos. Fun fact: we also use Facebook to poll our fans on the important questions, like who would win in a fight: Duncan MacLeod or Buffy the Vampire Slayer. What Marley doesn't understand is that with every Slayer MacLeod eliminates, he becomes even stronger. They have no chance. Them's the facts.
We're pretty busy these days, but we always have time for our fans. After all, you guys are the ones who make our shows possible. Thanks for your support, Shakerfans!
