August in Arkansas makes you want to kiss the person that invented air conditioning and drink your own weight in sweet tea. Naturally, Summer Oven is about Arkansas’s oppressive summer heat and all the crazy it brings out in us.
Several new sketches planned for the stage include “Mr. Science”, the story of a local kids science show host who has reached his breaking point with baking soda volcanoes. “An Apology for Hulk Hogan” where a wrestling fan tries to apologize to everyone Hulk Hogan has insulted. “Free Yoga,” the sign says free, but what about your soul? Also “Humid Hair, the newest beauty trend and “The Sweat Report”, Arkansas’s newest web weather forecast.
“We don’t want to remind you it’s hot, we want to make you laugh while you sweat,” said Jason Willey, Red Octopus Executive Producer.
The cast includes Sandy Baskin, Brian Chambers, Lesley Dancer, Drew Ellis, Michael Goodbar, Sam Grubb, Jeremiah Herman, Evan Tanner, and David Weatherly. Performances are open to all ages, but recommended for mature audiences because of adult language and situations, again, child tickets are $567 and a lock of hair.
Red Octopus Theater has been performing original, live sketch comedy in central Arkansas since 1991.
