Le Petomane Theatre Ensemble seasonably announces its latest offering, The Le Petomane Double Feature, including an all-new episode of the landslide audience vote winner, the live radio glory that is Gladys . . . of Adventure!, plus the shameless yet spectacular attempt to cash in on the season, entitled A Very Special Holiday Special.

The Le Petomane Double Feature will be performed on November 29, 30 and December 1, 7, 8 & 9, at 7:30 pm at the Rudyard Kipling, 422 West Oak Street.  Running time will be about 90 minutes

Tickets are available for the usual $8-$20 sliding scale (otherwise known as pay what you can afford)  It's cheaper and more personal than an evening movie –plus, you can drink! Reservations can be made by calling the Rudyard Kipling at (502) 636-1311 or by contacting [email protected].

So, what exactly will we feature in this Le Petomane Double Feature?  Well:

Gladys . . . of Adventure! - in the last episode of our comic saga, Gladys fought off the evil Dr. Benjamin Franklinstein, undead founding father and creator of The Gobbler, the biggest turkey the world has ever seen.  What unfathomable danger will she face next?  There’s only one way to find out…it’s the radio show you have to see to believe!

A Very Special Holiday Special - featuring all you would expect from a Le Petomane season-appropriate outing: a giant atomic beast crushing cities.  Baffled scientists pointing skyward and shouting.  And a message of love.  Think Plan 9 from the North Pole or Godzilla vs. Jack Frost and you’ll have some idea where we’ll be leading you.

A note from LePetomane:

How/Why Do We Even Do This? (The Ensemble-Creation Process): Rather than rent a script or hire a director to decide what we do, the ensemble is both Playwright and Director (also designer, composer, publicist, set crew, caterer and frequently box office staff).  Most companies don’t do this and we’re proud of this abnormality.  After we get enough of the show organized, staged and rehearsed that we’re sure it’s “something,” we invite in a couple of colleagues and/or friends to watch.  They laugh at some things and don’t laugh at others.  They tell us when we need to pay more attention to the audience near stage left.  We thank them.  Then we fix a few things.  Then we open.
