Red Octopus Theater, performing since 1991, starts off their 2015 season with The Peeps Show, a show about spring, warm weather, rebirth and marshmallow candies. The Peeps Show will also begin a series of productions featuring aspiring Red Octopus members.
The Peeps Show will feature five new faces for audience members as well as a strong cast of veteran performers. New performers auditioned earlier in 2015 for a spot in a Red Octopus show and perhaps an invitation to join the regular cast.
Jason Willey, Red Octopus Board Member said, “Sketch comedy and theater, in general, need new blood to keep it going and to keep it fresh. We held auditions after getting a lot inquiries and we found some funny people. Hopefully, we won’t scare them all off.”
The Peeps Show will exam the many facets of Spring, sparing no one or thing in it’s path. Religious themes pop up in “Jesus Saves”, about the onslaught of retail business on holidays. The show will feature live coverage of the Arkansas Legislature in, “So This Is What They Did Now…” The children’s PBS show “Bumblechunks & Friends” will teach kids about Easter around the world. And Park rangers, Thomas and Tom will get you ready for your “first date hike” up Petit Jean in “Love at the Top.” There will be some old favorites mixed in and a bunch of new material all lampooning all your favorite things to love and hate about the change in seasons. So come out and support live sketch comedy with Red Octopus Theater.
The cast includes Brian Chambers, Alli Clark, Drew Ellis, Michael Goodbar, Evan Tanner, David Weatherly and Jason Willey and featuring Scott Dombroski, Sam Grubb, Nichole Henry, Jeremiah James Herman and Anderson Penix.. Performances are open to all ages, but recommended for mature audiences because of adult language and situations, again, child tickets are $549.
