COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOL
We require proof of FULL vaccination upon entry. Anyone without proof of vaccination will be denied entry. A photo OR the physical vaccination card is accepted.
Do not attend if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms. Proof of full vaccination is required to enter the theater. Please present your vaccination card at the box office when entering. The name on the vaccination card must match the name on your ID.
There is risk of Covid-19 exposure in any venue. By entering the theater, you understand the risks associated with attending a show in an indoor theater. The CDC encourages wearing a mask indoors at all times.
We want to do everything we can to keep our students, performers and community healthy and comfortable. Because Covid-19 is an extremely contagious and potentially life threatening disease, we must require proof of vaccination when entering the theater.
History is full of challenges, and the people that summarily met those challenges. Babe Zaharias. Bruno Sammartino. Gordon Bombay. Yes. But what does that mean for us, today? How might we face the challenges of the modern world? As usual, your friendly local improv theater has the answer, as Steel City Improv Theater presents “The Challenge: Goon River”!
Goon River is a form of improv driven entirely by short character monologues. Based on your suggestions, our improvisers delve deep into their mental Rolodexes of quirky characters and mysterious personalities to bring you a veritable rogue’s gallery of rakes, rastabouts, and, uh, rogues. We ran out of synonyms — but our improvisers never do! In the guise of these characters, our improvisers use soliloquies to weave a tale that has never been heard before and never will be again. It’s just like the good parts of high school English class, only you can drink. Legally.
Why do our improvisers agree to take on such an imposing challenge? Like Sir Edmund Hillary surveying Everest — because it is there.
