What do you get when you cross zombies with Santa Claus and siamese twins? Why, you get the sketch comedy, "Tis the Season for Turducken," of course! This all new, all original show will be brought to the Civic Theater Lobby stage by Rochester's very own Theater du Jour troupe. You'll be laughing your jingle bells off as TDJ puts a unique twist on all things holiday. Come and join this lively theatre troupe as they spin their web of wit to produce a cornucopia of comedy and deck the halls with hilarity... ok, ok, you get the idea. Show dates are November 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17 at 8pm.
Boo Gobble Ho Ho Ho
Performances at the Rochester Civic Theater Lobby Stage
Friday and Saturday shows are Sold Out
A hearty Thank You to all the folks who bought their tickets in advance. We are psyched to go into the closing weekend with a full house. The actors get energy from the audience and vice versa, that's what's so special about live theater. And the energy is building already. Are you feeling it? I'm feeling it. Tonight's gonna be a good night. :)
Hi, this is Eric speaking to you btw. I am but a humble web monkey making an update to the TDJ home page on Friday morning, and I'd like to head off a couple of questions as best I can.
Q: Will there be tickets available at the door?
Q: I didn't get a ticket in the mail. Do I have a reservation?
MOM: Eric, this is so confusing, I don't know what's going on!
ERIC: Chillax Mom, we got your order. You are on the guest list.
MOM: Ok, but I didn't get any tickets in the mail.
ERIC: There are no physical tickets. It's done electronically nowadays. You got an email from Paypal didn't you?
ERIC: And it's for the date you wanted, right?
ERIC: Well, consider that your ticket. You can print it out and bring it with you if you'd like, but rest assured we have you on the guest list for that night.
MOM: Can I call someone to double-check? I just want to be sure.
ERIC: Geez, Louise! I'm telling you Mom, you're on the list. Everything will be ok.
MOM: What do you know? You can't even access the Paypal API to generate a customized reply email for each sale. Your skillz are weak. What kind of web monkey did I raise?
ERIC: Yeah, you're right, I know. I will work harder to explain and improve the ticket buying process for next time.
MOM: Ok. Love you hon.
ERIC: Love you too Mom.
I am updating this Friday in the AM and I am heading down to the theater soon. Sue will be monitoring the email and the phone messages up until about 6:00 tonight. After that we're all down at the theater.
I'm a long-winded web monkey aren't I? Just trying to help. - Eric
