Summer Comedy Festival promises non-stop laughter
New Village Arts Theatre opens its 9th Season with the NVA Summer Comedy Festival, a new annual event. NVA presents a series of events centered around one of our favorite things to do: laugh.
On The Mainstage: July 30 – Aug. 16
(Thursday and Friday at 8, Saturday at 3 and 8, Sunday at 2)
The mainstage production is David Ives’ hysterical and philosophically clever Time Flies, directed by Associate Artistic Director Joshua Everett Johnson. Time Flies is a series of short plays, with a cast of six actors who make quick changes between being mayflies, a washing machine and a roman slave, to name a few.
Prom Night & Sure Thing
Off-Nights: Aug. 2 – 12
(Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:30)
On summer off-nights, NVA present a production originally produced at the Playwrights Project in San Diego: Emily Reit’s Prom Night, directed by Ruff Yeager. Prom Night expands on every teenager’s nightmare of over-protective parents – way over-protective. Playing with Prom Night will be David Ives’ Sure Thing, another hilarious exploration of young relationships.
Billy Watson & The International Silver String Submarine Band
One Night Only: Aug. 10 at 7:30
As part of the Summer Comedy Festival, NVA presents an unforgettable musical performance by the talented and zany Billy Watson and the International Silver String Submarine Band.
