Festival UnBound – Dictators 4 Dummies… and more!

October 16, 7p


WEEKEND UPDATE! After careful consideration of the damp and chilly forecast, we’ve decided to convert Dictators 4 Dummies… and more! to a fully online event. We know that many of you were looking forward to joining us in the parking lot theatre, but we believe this will allow us to deliver the best product to as many of our audience as possible, while not hedging our bets on the fickle weather gods.

So – please join us VIA LIVESTREAM, Friday, October 16 at 7p! Click here to join the livestream, or search YouTube for “unbound” and “dummies” – viewing is free, donations are gratefully accepted. Get yourself some social-distance-safe takeout for dinner from your favorite local eatery (you can hit up Molly’s Irish Grille and Sports Pub and General Zapata, for the authentic Festival experience), tell your friends to log on for a watch party, and join us for an evening of music, comedy, and political satire.

(For those that have already purchased tickets – we’ll be in touch shortly. Thank you for your patience!)

An election season retrospective of original political satire. Ensemble Member Christopher Shorr presents a re-imagining of his 2018 musical, now a movie with larger-than-life characters played by action figures voiced by the original Dictators 4 Dummies cast. Plus: a concert of satirical songs from the Touchstone archive, with favorites from Bhudoo and The Pan Show: In Pan We Trust performed live by the Touchstone company. Join us for a comical evening, a musical challenge to complacency… and a chilling reminder of the tenuous state of democracy.
