In a return to the popular semi-improvised format that brought Portland sold out shows like FALL OF THE HOUSE, CAPTURED BY ALIENS and FALL OF THE BAND, Action/Adventure Theatre presents SIDEKICKS!, a workplace comedy about heroes who are less than super. When the world is in peril, the Sidekicks are the ones that get the coffee and take the punches. They may not be the heroes that Portland wants, but they are the heroes that Portland deserves.
Then every weekend following SIDEKICKS we’re putting on a festival of sorts and we’re calling it…
A new late night project (a festival of sorts)…
April 3-26, Thursday-Saturday, 10pm
Tickets: $6 advance, $10 at door, $15 4-week pass; special door deals for people who see Sidekicks before.
Tickets may be purchased at portland.strangertickets.com
Pilot Season will present four fully cast, mostly rehearsed, first episodes of a potential serial and the audience will get to vote which one gets a full production in Action/Adventure’s 2014-2015 season. (A full production means that 3 more episodes will be added to the first one and given a prime time spot in Action/Adventure’s season.)
Only two more Pilots left to catch!
Directed by Greta Pauley West and Gregory Heaton
