And here with are with a very special Friday edition of the thrifTheatre item countdown! Since the countdown will be over by next Friday, things are pretty black or white. This is a one-time-only deal! So if that sounds like music to your ears, prepare yourself for today’s item –
thrifTheatre item: A functional Casio SK-1 mini-keyboard
- Inspired the play “Dated,” written by Alex Gabaldon
- Directed by Kate Hawkes, with Kevin Goss and Judy Stahl
I don’t know about you, but I love these mini-keyboards, so when I found a fully functional one in the CCJ Thrift Shop, I snapped it up, sure that it would inspire brilliance. Then, as I was driving home, I started thinking about how much I wanted the keyboard and started having ulterior motives and scouting hiding places…however, I finally acquiesced. And man, I’m glad I did, because Alex Gabaldon came back with a wicked funny piece – “Dated.”
We see the keyboard first, along with a mysterious musician playing along to a pre-programmed beat with his guitar, but he promptly hides in the bushes as Fred (Kevin Goss) and Betty (Judy Stahl) return from…well, a pretty disastrous first date. However, love (and Casio chords) may still be in the air, as it seems that the mysterious musician could just be in on the finale ultimo of the not-quite-yet-over encounter. Will this help Fred and Betty’s date crescendo to success – or will this be the painful coda to the evening?
To find out if Fred, Betty (and Alfredo) make beautiful music together, be sure to get your tickets to find out! We have two very convenient options for you – online here at Brown Paper Tickets, or in person at the CCJ Thrift Shop at 442 West Goodwin Street here in Prescott!
