By Chuck Graham,


Todd Thompson gets to wear the costume of Zagoor, King of the Wrebulons.

Super-heroes are all over the place at Gaslight Theater, just like they are at your local movieplex. Only, at Gaslight, they are real people. Sort of like super-heroes unplugged.

Special effects (not to be confused with digital effects) have always been an imaginative specialty at the Gaslight. Ocean waves, volcanoes erupting sheets of on-rushing lava, spacecraft soaring over your head, arrows and knives that seem to fly across the stage and stick in a wall, tons of stuff like that.

Just opened, “The Freedom League” seems to have an extra dose of special effects, which does add to the fun. I mean, we already know there's no such thing as a super-hero, right?

None the less, Mega Man, Lady Liberty and the Streak get into some genuinely sticky situations and make a convincing case that sometimes extreme crises will call for extreme solutions.

For example, with Doom impending, the only chance our Super-friends have for survival will be if they can make time go backwards. Not a problem. The Streak leaps into low orbit around Earth, running really fast in the opposite direction of the globe's rotation.

Works every time.

All the Gaslight shows are double cast. The performance I attended had Jake Coffin looking very believable as the red-and-gold clad Streak. Mike Yarema with that cute little Superman curl on his forehead becomes Mega Man, disguised by day as mild mannered news reporter Brent Baker.

They are joined by Cait Rudd as bold Lady Liberty, whose daytime disguise is the strait-laced business secretary Alexis Archer. Clearly a fan of traditional superherodom, this Lady wears powerful bracelets ala Wonder Woman to shield herself from all incoming projectiles.

But really, the actors who get to wear the coolest costume are Todd Thompson, Charlie Hall and Eric Du to play the fearsome alien warrior Zagoor, King of the Wrebulons. Thompson had the honors when I was there.

Zagoor is perpetually angry, determined to destroy Earth and all that, so he flaunts a fearsome leather-clad Viking look, topped off with a helmet that has two massive sets of horns. Magnificent.

By intermission the sides supporting good and evil are clearly drawn, the battle lines laid out and the song list ready. This will be a proud moment for “Truth, Justice and the American Way,” set to a romping rock 'n' roll beat.

Some song titles that might come to mind hearing these Gaslight renditions are “Hey Hey, We're the Monkees,” “It's Not Unusual,” “You're No Good,” “Dancing Queen” and “One Fine Day.”

But do not miss the Star Seekin' Olio, either. Dave Orley is back with his brilliant take on Ed McMahon, his booming laugh and commentary, as the host of a singing contest. Audience applause decides the winner, with an official volume meter measuring the response to each contestant.

On the bill are such names from the 1980s as Cindy Lauper, Boy George and Madonna. Ed is also passing out some ear candy jokes.

“At the beach today, a sad story when the lifeguard wasn't able to save a hippie from drowning. The lifeguard tried to save him, but the hippie was just too far out.”

“Did you hear that Star Wars has a restaurant now? I went there the other day and ordered a Wookie steak. I thought it tasted chewy.”

“The Freedom League” runs through August 28, with performances at various times Tuesdays through Sundays at the Gaslight Theatre, 7010 E. Broadway Blvd. Tickets (plus tax) are $18.95 adult; $16.95 students, seniors and military;$8.95 children age 2-12. For details and reservations, 520-886-9428,

To Ella, with love comes to quail creek friday, june 24

Tucson's own Crystal Stark stars in tribute to Ella Fitzgerald


TUCSON, AZ – Powerhouse performer Crystal Stark will take the stage at Quail Creek Country Club this Friday, June 24 at 7:00 pm in a salute to First Lady of Song Ella Fitzgerald.


The show, produced by Khris Dodge Entertainment, pays homage to Fitzgerald and features some of her most iconic works, but Crystal's approach to the music is what sets this show apart from other Ella Fitzgerald tributes. "Crystal spent countless hours listening to and studying Ella," says music director and co-creator Khris Dodge. "She does so much more than sing the same songs that Ella did. She listens for inflection, tone, and delivery…and performs them in a very Ella-like manner. When Crystal scats, she channels Ella and it comes through."


To Ella, with Love features beloved songs, including: A-Tisket, A-Tasket; Summertime; Mac the Knife; Blue Skies; How High the Moon; Embraceable You; and I Got Rhythm. Crystal will be joined on stage by Khris Dodge (piano), Rick Shosie (bass), Fred Hayes (drums), and Rylande Dodge (percussion).


Tickets for To Ella with Love are $20 and are available by calling 520-393-5822. The Quail Creek Country Club is located at 2055 E. Quail Crossing Blvd., Green Valley.

Introducing The Performing Arts Coalition at ZUZI! - PACZ


From: Zuzi Dance []
Sent: Thursday, June 23, 2016 1:31 PM
Subject: ZUZI PACZ




The fall is upon us and ZUZI! is looking for artists of all genres to become a member of the Performing Arts Coalition.


ZUZI! is seeking groups involved in theater, dance, or circus as well as other performing artists to band together and create a shared home nestled in the upper 4th Avenue District. ZUZI! Theater is a 135-seat theater at The Historic Y.

As downtown Tucson continues to develop, so must performing artists develop new strategies to reach their audiences.  The hope is that by bringing other small groups together we can create a hub of theater, dance, and performing arts. Thus was born The Performing Arts Coalition at ZUZI! or PACZ.


"We want to see other performing arts and companies have a home," says ZUZI! Dance Co-founder, Nanette Robinson, "with a dedicated, year-round rehearsal space with each organization or individual artist, bringing its own team of performers, artists and dancers and their own mission and style to the PACZ stage."


 The formation of PACZ will give fledgling organizations the opportunity to have a home in which to produce. Although ZUZI!'s focus is dance and somatic healing practices, part of their goal is to provide opportunities and resources for individuals to discover and confidently navigate their creative paths. Shawn Burke, owner of The Historic Y where PACZ is housed, endorses this new direction. "My vision," explains Burke, "has been to build upon the  dynamic, progressive, and creative atmosphere that ZUZI! originally brought when it opened for business here in 1999.  The new Performance Arts Coalition is the perfect addition." 


If you would like to find out more regarding this great opportunity please contact us.


We thank you for your time and attention and hope to see you around the studio or at a show!


Please contact Nanette at 520-629-0237 or email for more information!

Improv Workshops with Gary Jacobs, July 9 - 10, 2016

Gary Jacobs

Precipice Improv Theater



Visionary theater improv teacher Gary Jacobs is coming from the Washington, DC, area to Tucson!  He will be here July 9 - 10.

Gary Jacobs is founder of The Center for Narrative Improvisation and Precipice Improv Theater in the Washington, DC, area. He has taught improvisational theater all over the U.S. and internationally and is author of the upcoming book The Third Wave of Improv. During his 36-year career in improv, he apprenticed for 10 years with Second City director and teacher Michael Gellman, coiner of the term "long-form improv."

Gary's book The Third Wave of Improv explores these questions: Can improvisation create great theater, theater as good as the best scripted work? If so, how? It includes interviews with leading improv teachers, directors, and troupes, as well as the latest cutting-edge exercises and techniques.

In 1996, Gary founded Precipice Improv Theater, dedicated to performing only improvised plays. Upon hearing of his plans for Precipice, Gary's mother said, "This will either be the most brilliant contribution to Western Civilization since the invention of scientific one-point perspective by Filippo Brunelleschi in 1413, or theatrical suicide."

Twenty years later, Precipice Improv Theater is still improvising plays for delighted audiences.  Gary teaches the tools they've developed for keeping scenes strong and audiences engaged.

Students have this to say about his teaching:

I've studied improv with other teachers, and while it was always loads of fun, Gary's class brings us to a completely different creative level.

-- Penina Maya, improviser

Gary's classes still blow my mind after 3 years. Sheer genius.

-- Tim Ward, President, Asia Africa Operations at Intermedia Communications Training and author of What Buddha Never Taught, and Zombies on Kilimanjaro

Tips, Tricks, and Techniques for Starting Scenes, Maintaining Excitement, and Saving Scenes in Trouble

The hardest and most exciting part of any scene is the opening. Because at the start, the improviser confronts a dizzying array of possibilities. Improvisers in this workshop will learn three sure-fire ways to start scenes, guaranteed to generate chemistry with your scene partners and grab the audience's attention. Gary Jacobs will also work with each participant to identify their unique ways of starting scenes, evaluate their effectiveness, and invite them to explore other options and possibilities.

After a scene has started, what then? How do you keep it going? One of the dirty little secrets of improv is that most scenes will stall eventually, even if you follow all the rules of good scene structure. This is why improvisers have created so many ways for transitioning to other scenes, and so many formats for keeping the scenes short. But, what if you were confident that your scenes would maintain their initial excitement until you decide on an artistically satisfying ending? In this workshop you will discover the principles that reliably produce the thrill always present in great improv. And, if the scene does stall, you will know what to do because Gary will show you four techniques for addressing this issue.

This workshop is open to any actor, regardless of experience.

The Improvised Play – A Challenge to the Improviser

Twenty-five hundred years ago, Athenians playwrights invented an art form so successful that their progeny-- the writers, directors, and actors working in theater, film, and television today-- routinely create entertainment for over seven billion people in the same form. What is the secret to this ancient form's success, and why aren't improvisers using it to gain mass appeal and possibly earn a good living doing improv?

One reason may be that it seems impossible. The essence of improv is spontaneity, while the essence of playwriting and screenwriting is planning how all the scenes and events fit together to produce carefully sequenced pay-offs for the audience.

After wrestling with this problem for 30 years, a handful of directors have begun to bridge the gap between these opposing mindsets-- spontaneity versus careful story crafting-- allowing improvisers to create scenes and plays that combine the excitement of short-form improv with the coherence and emotional payoffs of a good scripted play, TV show, or film.

This workshop illuminates the fundamental differences between short-form improv, long-form improv, and improvised plays, some of which are quite profound. You'll learn the principles and techniques to make the mental shift needed to successfully jump from one to the other. It is based in part on the research Gary Jacobs has conducted for his upcoming book, The Third Wave of Improv. You will be challenged to operate at a level of excellence comparable to the best scripted work done today, whether you do short- or long-form improv, and you will come away with the tools to meet this challenge.


This workshop is open to any actor with improvisation experience.


Workshop for Everyone - $15

Improvisation for the Soul

When you see actors perform, you may think that they are simply reciting lines they have learned.  In reality, successful acting requires creating each scene, and every line, from the heart.  Learn to identify the emotions you bring to each creative moment and bring them through your body to make fascinating, surprising scenes with other participants that will delight and inspire you. 

Actors and non-actors are welcome.

Comedy Improvisation

You don't have to be a funny person to love and get a lot out of a comedy improv class. I can make you funny. Because you have to focus in this class, you can end up taking a vacation from the stuff that goes on in your life, and there's a lot of healing with laughter. Your coach is a former Saturday Night Live cast member, and will give you the accents and the formats you can use as a "safety net." Improv is a great stress reliever and really encourages the ability to verbally communicate. So, come, play, have a ball, and enjoy releasing your own special creativity.

Also, for students of acting, improv enhances your auditions, loosens up the body, helps you think fast on your feet, introduces dialects, and sharpens your timing.4 consecutive Wednesday nights

Start on any Wednesday (but you should call first to sign up).

Don't worry if you have to miss one or even two of the four classes. You simply pay for the class you have to miss and then take class #5 free.  It's even possible to pay $160 at your first class, and then take your last three classes whenever you can make it. (I keep great records.)

Including the iconic guitar solos of "Hotel California!"  The Eagles Greatest Hits (1971-1975) album was the BEST SELLING ALBUM of the 20th century in the US.  This amazing tribute will remind you of the reason why!
