Calling all Beertonians! Let your voice be heard! Join dog & pony dc and the citizens of Beertown to celebrate The 20th Quinquennial Time Capsule Day!
Which tells the story of your town's history better: a family's bible or a pair of spectacles? A meteorite or a lawn sign?
Part Civic Ceremony, part theatrical pageant, then at once a Choose Your Own Adventure / Murder Mystery Dinner Party, Beertown pays homage to small-town America by exploring the dynamic relationship between individuals and their community.
You the audience shape the show!
Every performance of Beertown begins with a dessert potluck; bring a dessert to share!
"Exceedingly good-hearted - a combination of Our Town and a Christopher Guest film!" - New York Times
"A quirky civics lesson. Director Rachel Grossman and this enthusiastic company are the real stars!" - The Village Voice
"An invigorating piece that ingeniously constructs and deconstructs the most important tenets of theater itself: community and ritual. After visiting for a few hours, it felt like I've lived there my entire life!" - TheaterMania
"A truly remarkable piece of theatre!" - Eye On The Arts
