About Drunk Classics
About Drunk Classics: At any point during the performance, an audience member can make a donation for a “Drunken Point Of Order” – a new rule that the players must abide by, and once the rules have been explained the games can begin! Examples include accents, exclamatory words, and physical actions.
One player, selected by the audience, will consume several adult beverages to start the show. An abridged piece will then be performed, with loads of room for audience inclusion, and one inebriated participant.
Players must be able to consume alcohol.*
No member of the cast will 'play the drunk' consecutively.
Transportation for drinking member will be provided.
*Though the nature and atmosphere of this production center around the imbibing of adult beverages, those who participate in sober living are welcome and encouraged to audition. Accommodations can be made in the production to protect and include those who are unable to participate in the consumption of alcohol.
