Five years strong.

We have five seasons and fourteen terrific shows under our belts here at Table Salt.

Over 150 local performers, technicians, designers and directors have graced our productions to date...

...and we promise, the best is yet to come!

Psych 101 mini-tour!

Better than seeing a therapist, and cheaper too!

The writing on the wall is telling us that the future of education is online.  But one professor refuses to accept it!  Come join Jim Robinson as he makes one last-ditch attempt to stem the rising tide — in Psych 101!

You, the audience, are also the students, along with perennial Table Salt favorites Joshua Will, Michelle Cassioppi, Tina North and Dennis Curley.  Sing along with the songs, laugh along with the sketches, and take an entire semester of Psych 101 in just 90 minutes (complete with midterm and final)!

Performing at Dreamland Arts on October 28, and at the Bryant-Lake Bowl on November 6-7.  Click here for tickets and information!

You can have Psych 101 performed at your event — click here for more info!

Traveling, Traveling

Table Salt is taking England by storm!

Once upon a time, across the pond, the English Department at the University of Lincoln decided to host Court and Spark: An International Symposium on Joni Mitchell.  Table Salt's own Jim Robinson applied to be a presenter, and lo and behold, he was accepted!  Now he is bringing two of Table Salt's most beloved sketches to the Brits!

Jim is presenting a paper entitled "From the Literate to the Literal:  Joni Mitchell as a Comic Muse."  As part of his presentation, he will be showing brand new videos of two sketches:  "The Last Time I Saw Richard and Deirdre" and "Joni Mitchell Is Scrooge" (from Spiked!).

We hired the actors, rented the film studio and camera crew, filmed the scenes, and are in the process of editing the videos right now.  That's where you come in.  To help defray costs, we are hosting a special ONE NIGHT ONLY FUNDRAISING CONCERT!

These incredible singers will be gracing the stage:  Dennis Curley, Katy Hays, Shanan Custer, Michelle Cassioppi, Beth Gilleland, Martha Pettee, Jen Scott, Dorian Chalmers, Joshua Will, Casey Flanery, Morgan Jappe, Joy Dolo, and Morgan Zimmerman!

The show is on Monday, June 15, 2015, at 7 PM at the Black Forest Inn (side room).  Tickets are on sale here.  If you are unable to attend, but wish to make a (non-tax-deductible) gift, you can click here.

Thanks in advance, and we hope to see you there!

Shades of Ginger

A one-woman show starring Rachael Brogan Flanery!

Shades of Ginger

Table Salt is thrilled to take part in Theatre Unbound's festival of short plays, Girl Shorts 2015!  Our entry is a new one-woman show by Rachael Brogan Flanery, featuring songs by Jim Robinson and Dennis Curley, and directed by Anne Byrd.

Fallen country superstar Ginger puts on her brightest lipstick and tightest pants as she tries to dig out from under an internet scandal.  Will a comeback interview put her back on top?  Anyone who has ever spent a moment or two in Ginger's whiskey-soaked shoes will be rooting for her.
