Same Time Next Year
Where: Southwest Arts Center in Atlanta

The fresh, touching, and hilariously funny story of lovers Doris and George, married – to other people – who meet by chance while on separate business trips in 1951. The pair vow to rendezvous each year in the same place, and end up finding a connection that transcends the initial spark of passion to span a quarter of a century’s worth of love, loss, joy, conflict, but ultimately a common ground that sustains their unique friendship.  Same Time, Next Year is a delicious tryst about the complexities of human relationships and the phenomenon of love.

Tickets are $50 for adults, $30 for seniors (65+), and $20 for students. Online and phone sales end at 4:00pm on the day of the show. Doors open at 7pm.

Murder at Mardi Gras
Where: Mardi Gras Casino in Hallandale, Florida

It’s not every day that a dinner with friends risks a murder accusation. However, that’s a good possibility for the guests of Murder at the Mardi Gras, who will find themselves in the middle of an investigation for which any one of them could stand accused by a hapless detective. During each interactive dinner, our troupe of professional improv actors will ignite the second floor area with entertaining outbursts and hilarious one-liners in an effort to divulge clues and redirect guilt. Meanwhile, our guests will work together to sniff out the real culprit, which is definitely not the school janitor in a mask (or is it?).

Doors open at 2:30pm. Online and phone sales close at 1pm on the day of the show. Not suggested for children. Tickets are $42.95.
