Fairy Tale Forensics

ColdTowne features live comedy 7 nights a week, but there’s just one Saturday morning show…

What’s the Story Steve Presents: Fairy Tale Forensics, an improvised comedy from Excused Absence at ColdTowne Theater, follows the production of a fictional television show. Each week, a recurring cast creates an updated version of a fairy tale performed with the help of spacial guest producers and “extras” cast from our audience. Drama and hilarity ensue both onstage and off as we follow the performers through rehearsals, rewrites and final performances. Fast paced, interactive and family friendly, this 50 minute performance is designed to bring audience members into the creation of updated classics. Appropriate for kids 3 and up.

Tickets available at the door or online here.

Excused Absence Nights

Weekly all Ages Shows

Sundays at 5 PM we turn the theater over to performers and audience members under 18. Each Teen Improv Night features an all youth improv troupe and a local adult improv troupe performing material appropriate for every member of the family. Following these shows, audience members and performers are invited to join us onstage for an open improv jam. This is a great opportunity to see improv performed by peers, by experienced, trained improvisers, and then to give it a try yourself! Pay what you want. Parents are totally welcome!

Tickets are available at the door beginning at 4:40 each week. Sorry, no online option for this show.
