Corvallis Comedy Night with Emmy Blotnick

March 14th @ 7:30 pm
Starker Auditorium
Tickets: $14
Content: Appropriate Audiences

Emmy Blotnick has deep thoughts about shallow subjects. Both as a stand-up and TV writer, her incisive takes on today’s pop culture and politics give them way more thoughtful consideration than they deserve. Blotnick was recently nominated for an Emmy (no relation) for her work as a writer on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where she was also the creative force behind the show’s best-selling charity children’s book Whose Boat Is This Boat?. Some of her other writing credits include The Comedy Central Roast, @midnight, Best Week Ever and The President Show. As a stand-up, Emmy has performed on Conan, Colbert, Comedy Central, and recently completed a full month of shows at the world-famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. The New York Times calls her “a rising star with a comic, “Black Mirror” view of culture” and we can’t wait to welcome her to Corvallis to hear her takes on the latest cultural events. We’re sure tons of garbage stuff will happen between now and then.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

April 3, 4, 10, 11 at 7:30pm

Starker Auditorium
Tickets: $14-16
Content: Appropriate Audiences

The stage directions state: “All actors remain on stage unless prescribed otherwise. There is also a dead dog. With a fork in it. Scenes run into one another without interruption, regardless of alterations in space or time or chronology.” so begins the play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. When the lights come up, the dead dog is seen onstage. It is immediately assumed that fifteen-year old Christopher Boone is responsible. However, he is innocent. Christopher decides to investigate. Christopher has a unique mind that is phenomenal at math. The play is told from Christopher’s viewpoint, and he is onstage for the entire show. Many of the other characters appear and assist in Christopher's narrative. Christopher is a very literal person and, as he wrote this story, he recorded what he saw. Christopher records the details of his investigation in a book which is being read aloud by his teacher during the play. This story is heartbreaking and inspirational. It is an adventure you don't want to miss! Awarded both the Tony and the Olivier awards for Best Play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time powerfully examines what it truly means to love, and the sacrifices it often takes to do so.

There will be talkbacks after matinee performances!

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda has won 47 international awards and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages around the world.

Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace!

The best laid plans go awry when the cast and crew of a Broadway-bound play resort to manipulation, diva-like behavior, and chaotic abandon to get what they want. Fledgling playwright Jerry Przpezniak and his fiancee are a couple of Buffalo greenhorns suddenly swept up in the whirlwind of New York's theater scene when Jerry's play is optioned for the big money, ego-driven world of Broadway. It's a young playwright's dream, but the crazy characters and dilemmas they encounter are the things theatrical nightmares are made of.

Corvallis Comedy Night with Guy Branum

June 7th @ 7:30 pm
Starker Auditorium
Tickets: $14
Content: Appropriate Audiences

“You may have noticed that I am unusually large for a homosexual.” That’s how Guy Branum introduced himself to America on Last Comic Standing and it’s that kind of hilarious forthrightness that defines his comedy. Trained as a lawyer, Guy knows how to attack a joke from every angle using his hyper-literate (and hyper-speed) delivery, as well as how to intellectually crush all those who dare defy him. Since escaping a Northern California farm town, Guy has appeared on Conan, Comedy Central, Chelsea Lately, The Mindy Project and in the Natalie Portman film No Strings Attached, and also hosted the late, great series Talk Show the Game Show on TruTV. As a writer, Guy has worked on such shows as The Mindy Project, E!’s Fashion Police and Billy on the Street, and has also had numerous op-ed and humor pieces run in such publications as The New York Times, Slate and Vulture. In 2018, he published his first book, a fantastic collection of essays called My Life As a Goddess: A Memoir Through (Un)Popular Culture. In addition to being a great stand-up and writer, Guy also has one of the best, most distinctive laughs in comedy. We can’t wait for all three talents to be on display as we celebrate Pride Month in Corvallis with the great Guy Branum!

On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed twenty-six innocent souls before taking his own life. These twenty-six deaths, like pebbles thrown into a pond, created ripples and vibrations that were felt far beyond the initial rings. This is the story of those vibrations.

Similar in style to The Laramie Project, playwright Eric Ulloa conducted interviews with members of the community in Newtown and crafted them into an exploration of gun violence, mental health, safety in our schools and public arenas and how a small town shaken by a horrific event can find hope and healing.
