Look ahead and celebrate Ocho de Mayo with us…in person!!
HELLO AND WELCOME TO THIS INFORMATION!
Thanks for taking the time to look at this. Bartleby Productions’ OCHO DE MAYO CELEBRATION (7:30pm at Black Rock Pub and Kitchen, 3614 N. Damen Ave) is intended to kick off a new series of events celebrating holidays notable and obscure, unusual and expected. To that end, this event will consist of work (new, old, untested, and recently devised) inspired by the actual holiday Cinco de Mayo as well as some other holidays on May 8th, which you can read about here:
We’re personally looking forward to Time of Remembrance and Reconciliation for Those Who Lost Their Lives during the Second World War, and Truman Day.
Basically, anything connected with the day is fine: notable births, deaths, or events are also up for grabs.
WHAT DO WE WANT FROM YOU?
Great question! Come to our event. Better yet, perform at our event!
We’re looking for basically any type of act, running between 5 and 10 minutes, performable with nothing more than a PA system or a projector. Literally anything. Our last show of this kind had sketch comedy, stand up, magic, some monologues, and a movie. Read something, do a dance, whatever. We’d love to see it. New work is especially encouraged. Last time, much of our material was written the day of which gives the whole thing a fun, loose, anything-can-happen vibe.
WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT LIKE?
The show will be May 8, 2013 at 7:30 PM. Ideally, we’d like all acts to be there by 6:30 the night of and stay for the duration. But when is life ever ideal, you know? Do what you gotta do. That’s it. And your first beer is on us.
Please let us know if you’re interested by May 5th. Shoot us an email at email@example.com
