Thanks for Helping Us Exceed Our Kickstarter Goal!

Thanks so much to the 69 backers (was this on purpose?) who helped us reach and exceed our Kickstarter goal for Suddenly Split & Swiping Over! Thanks to your support, we can now tour this show all the way to the San Francisco Bay Area in July!

Our multi-character, one-woman show follows Kelly who has been waiting forever for her long-term boyfriend to just propose already but finds herself unexpectedly single and unprepared to begin dating in the digital age.

Join us for the premiere of this fun and heartfelt show at the Hollywood Fringe Festival from June 9-26 (preview June 4).

We’ll then tour to The EXIT Theatre in San Francisco on Friday, July 9 and Saturday, July 10, and then hop over to Berkeley at The Downward Dog for performances on Sunday, July 11 and Monday, July 12.

Back our Kickstarter for “Suddenly Split & Swiping Over!”

All Terrain Theater has just launched a Kickstarter campaign for “Suddenly Split and Swiping Over” to cover promotional expenses for our run with the Hollywood Fringe Festival in June and to make it possible to tour the show to the San Francisco Bay Area in July!

Although we expect very healthy ticket sales for all of our performances for this production, ticket sales alone can not cover all of the expenses associated with renting performance space, paying our artists, covering insurance, and promoting the show. That is why we’re relying on our community to chip in with pledges to our Kickstarter campaign that runs from April 22 – 28. That’s only one week to raise the $3,000 we need to make our touring production happen.

Kickstarter Backers receive a fun range of rewards for their support, including tickets to the performance of their choice, ONLINE DATING advice, and even a custom All Terrain Theater canvas tote bag!

Please visit our Kickstarter page and make a pledge! Our campaign closes Thursday, April 28th.

Casting Notice for Six Monsters: A Seven-Monster Play

All Terrain Theater is casting a lead actor (Skeleton) and 3-4 ensemble actors for our mainstage production “Six Monsters: A Seven-Monster Play” by Savannah Reich and directed by Sydney Painter to be performed at The EXIT Theatre in San Francisco in July and August.

This is All Terrain Theater’s sixth season of producing original plays, and our first time producing work by Minneapolis-based Savannah Reich, a recent graduate of the Carnegie Mellon University Dramatic Writing MFA program and 2015 winner of the National Student Sloan Screenplay Competition, whose stage plays have been toured around the East Coast.

Skeleton (f, 20s-30s) – A woman outgoing enough to gather an apartment-building full of people for a talk, yet she lacks interpersonal confidence. She has a taste for NyQuil and a tendency to get caught up in awkward social situations.

Ensemble (m/f, all ages) – Ability to play multiple one-off roles, good with physical humor. Ensemble actors may be invited to perform in an additional short play that will be paired with “Six Monsters.”

Performances at The Exit (all 8pm):
