Clown Bar: Episode 1 Encore Weekend
at the Little Theatre Auditorium
August 18-19th at 8pm

A dark comedy noir that follows clown turned cop’s investigation into his brother’s murder w/orig music by Andrea Limoges and Friends!

Back for a 2nd run! LTA is pleased to present Clown Bar: Episode 1 written by Adam Szymkowics. Directed by Matt Hegdahl. Music composed and performed by Andrea Limoges & friends!

The rules are strict, the jokes are dark, and the best way to serve a cocktail is to “make it funny.”

Immerse yourself in the gritty and gruesome world of underground clown-crime. Little Theatre Auditorium turned Clown Bar is after hours home to some once-jolly circus troupers who now get their kicks through sex, drugs, and murder.

Clown Bar’s plot is relatively straightforward: Former clown Happy (an appropriately debonair John Szczur), is now a detective who returns to his old stomping ground to investigate the death of his kid brother and once aspiring funnyman, Timmy (Gavin Johnson).

🔴 Get your free red nose at the door! and a 🤡 “Happy” Hour cocktail/fauxtail discount for those who arrive in clown attire! Don’t miss special preshow and aftershow performances!
