Company Onstage is proud to present the first offering of our Local Author’s Series for the 2018 Season

{adjective}[noun] A Theatrical Symphony in Eighteen Movements by Nicholas Garelick Presented by special arrangement with Nicholas Garelick

0 47

Absurdist. Deconstructionist. Sagittarian. The works of award-winning playwright Nicholas Garelick have delighted audiences throughout Houston for years. A graduate of the University of Houston and a former President of Scriptwriters/Houston, Nicholas came into the theatre world through the ancient medium of Dungeons & Dragons, and his skill at world-building and an altered view on society have led to some of the most thought-provoking mirths since jesters became obsolete with the invention of the flute.

Presented here in a theatrical symphony of laughter and passion are a specially curated selection of some of his favorite short works. Filled with boundless hilarity, heart-wrenching beauty, and an almost post-sane level of the preposterous, this limited engagement is not one to be missed!

Included are some of Nicholas’ most iconic works, including Catching Falling Stars, Death Station Dance Revolution, and Map of the Atoms of the Universe, along with some brand-new material, and favorites that have yet to be performed for a Houston audience.

With an unparalleled company of actors (Kacie Adams, Audrey Burkhart, Dano Colon, Ty Fisher, Aaron Garrett, Elizabeth Grant, Bailey Hampton, Renata Smith, and Todd Thigpen) and direction from the adequate Lauren Hainley, there is a non-zero chance that this will be the best {noun} you’ve had since [life event]!

Six performances only on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, November 8, 9, 10, 15, 16 and 17 @ 8:00 p.m. Tickets are available at or at the door. Early ticket purchase is strongly recommended.

Due to mature themes and adult situations, this show is appropriate for people ages 16 and up, Plutonians who have passed the time of the Snurggle, and talking orange cats in bowties.
