Due to the surge, every January event has been rescheduled. I was heartbroken enough I had a hard time making an update here and on my Linktree.
More full update coming soon. In the meantime, did you know I had some novels?
Chunnel Surfer II (There is no “I”) – I don’t know, I don’t understand anything. I mean, I watch, I read, I listen — but what do I know? Sometimes I think I have an idea, like there’s some meaning or something, but then it’s gone before there’s any resolution.
I sometimes slip inside, you know? Like it’s my story. I am sure, even. But then, well, it changes again. I think this is really me now, but is it? How would I know?
Maybe one of the others is the real me: the man who kills, the boy who hunts, the detective, the surgeon, the amnesiac, the victim. I shudder to think that some of those lives might really be my own. Their reality scares me, even as I wake from it into another. And another. Sometimes there’s a theme, I think, a reason for this one to come after that one, but even that passes, and I am in a reality, and for a time, it is mine.
Eastern White Pine – A group of local teens seek answers to the mystery of their friend’s brutal murder, and the trail leads into a house whose interior leads to strange, confusing rooms.
Both books are also available form Amazon, B&N, and can be requested from your local bookstore or library. And hey, drop me a line and you might be able to order one from me directly.
2022 will bring more safe and hybrid shows to Alliance Theater and Scixxy’s Greater Shows!
SGS fans have the opportunity to fill out this brief survey to let us know what you’re most excited to see in the coming year.
April 1-3 is the Utah Variety Arts Conclave, and we have a survey to gather information about what local variety artists would most like to see in panels and workshops. Topics may include how to make a career out of your act, producing shows, taxes, developing various performing skills, busking, and a show! Registration opens in the new year.
Alliance Theater specializes in the hybrid show: a limited live audience with an extended livestream audience. Think late-night talk show, with a live audience in the theater, but most people watch from home. We don’t have advertisers, though, and I think that’s an advantage. Ticket prices are set by the producers of the individual show, but are generally accessible — especially for a high-quality livestream such as we produce!
So much to choose from, as events start to open up. NOTE: most of these events are livestreamed, and in-house audiences are required to remain masked at this time.
TONIGHT -12/13/2021 – The Gotta Sing! students are putting on a Christmas concert at Alliance Theater. Seats are for guests only, but they’ll be livestreaming it on Alliance Theater’s Twitch channel. I won’t link directly, because we’ve been having trouble with bots, but if you know Twitch, it’s easy to find us, the user name is the obvious one. If you like traditional, family-friendly Christmas music, tune in!
December 15, 16: – The Lord of Misrule is on! Raucous, wild, interactive and different every show, this entertaining and irreverent take on Christmas is raising funds for local homeless causes. Donations give the audience the power to alter the show. Livestreamed and in-theater audiences both participate and affect the outcome. Tickets are free, but must be reserved.
December 18: Kiki Cabaret presents: Jolly Jezebel Jubilee: not family-friendly at all, this take on holiday variety specials and cabaret is bringing the best of Utah’s local performing artists on stage at the most up-and-coming independent art theater in Salt Lake City! And as with most productions at Alliance, this show will also be livestreamed. If you’ve never had a cabaret in your home before, this might just be the time for it!
January 11 and every Tuesday for six weeks: SOS Improv is back! This six-week course brings Scix back, assisted by Nathan Sears and Karren Shamo, to start with the basics and build up to expert-level improv, with a focus on fun, flexibility and resilience that can be useful in all parts of your life. Safety and inclusion are priorities. Scholarships available, email email@example.com to inquire.
January 15: Kitté L’amour presents the Orphans Cabaret and local performers for Orphan’s Festivus. If you’ve never seen a Kitté L’amour show, you are missing out! Variety burlesque and a local band of slightly quirky, folksy, bluesy, rocksy musicians from out of the wilderness.
January 22, 23: It’s Repo! The Genetic Opera! the shadowcast that has been temporarily orphaned from Tower Theater is still at it, bringing this cult favorite to stage and screen. This highly-talented and professional cast bring an extra dimension to a movie that is already practically perfect! Livestream is free for this one, but get your seat tickets while you can, we expect to sell out!
February 27: Kiki Cabaret is back, with Kiki Cabaret Presents: Lupercalia. Little is known about this event so far, but tickets are onsale for Kiki fans eager to get in early, as these shows have begun to sell out. As with all Kikis, this one will also be livestreamed, for an inhouse experience unlike anything else you’ll find on screen!
The 5th is Jacob‘s and Scix’s first anniversary! Not sure what we’re doing, but probably not much. The promised big reception will have to wait another year, we’re really comfortable enough with numbers to feel safe throwing a shindig.
Friday the 10th we’re having a night of comedy! Put together by our very own Paula Webster-Ravest, check back for more details soon!
December 12th’s Krampus Night celebration is cancelled, sorry to say, and we’re all disappointed, but for a variety of reasons this was not the time. HOWEVER, the Dreamscapes crew have a great show planned after the new year, so stay tuned!
December 15th and 16th is The Lord of Misrule, a fantastic production by RJ Walker. Tickets are free, donations will be accepted to help the local homeless population.
Kiki Cabaret returns Sunday the 19th (though date is subject to change), and I think that takes us through the end of the year. Quite a time!
Keep checking in for announcements for what’s coming up in 2022! Look for a return of Gonzo Rising, the Circus of the Strange, and SOS Improv, as well as more virtual and hybrid events available all across the planet!
October events! All of these events are either Scixxy’s Greater Shows events, or SGS is a part of the event in some fashion (often by being the livestreaming service)
