Excursion Fare

By Dennis Smith

A CWP Mainstage Production

Directed by Thomas Pahl

April 26th through May 11th, 2019

Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

The setting is a way station of the dead on route to eternity. It specifically houses people whose bodies have never been found. With Amelia Earhatt, Judge Crater, Ambrose Bierce and Jimmy Hoffa, and a young man whose car careened down a mountain and a girl who jumped from the Golden Gate Bridge. All have some hope for what is yet to come, even those who abandoned all hope entering here. There are games and contests, some comic, some deadly serious, including the last one which determines why they fear facing their destinies in eternity.

Presented with the support of the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.

Presented at Carrollwood Players Theatre by CRH: The Crazy Random Happenstance.

Saturday, May 4th, 2019 - 11 pm

CRH would like to invite you to a birthday celebration!

Whose birthday? Ours, of course!

10 years ago CRH started without a name, expecting to be a group of friends who were to do a one-time performance of Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog.

Now, we have grown into a troupe that performs year round, putting on stage shows, fight shows, burlesque shows, and shadowcasts that incorporate the various talents of our performers.

This show will be a celebration of 10 years worth of these things, and more! With special guests, old and new performances, and plenty of surprises, this is going to be one hell of an anniversary show!

18+. Please bring photo ID.
