New Crow Promotion Procedure

Want to promo something during an intermission at the Deathmatch? Good! We want to help share what everybody is up to.

So we can keep the DM moving, your benevolent overlords (the CBC Committee) have come up a simple process. Please write your announcement on a piece of paper (fine) or an index card (ideal) and give it to Tooher when you check in. The host will read the announcements from the stage before the start of Act 2.

Now...back to the playwriting!

November 11, 2015 Deathmatch - "DO IT YOURSELF"

REMINDER: The November and December Deathmatches are on the SECOND Wendnesday of the month.

So the Committee received an email three or so months ago from a young Crow stating how much he enjoyed CBC and what else he could do to help.

After several months of consideration (as the CBCC are a group of long considerers), we hit upon the idea of having guest hosts on occasion. And since he gave us the idea, the eager young Crow gets to go first.

Cameron Foley is the guest host for the November Deathmatch. His chosen theme is "Do It Yourself"

Deathmatch Winners - August 2015 "THE FEELING IS MUTUAL"

Wednesday, Aug 5, 2015

Hot and humid was the weather report at Mayo Street Arts. The heat was also exacerbated by the sizzling no holds barred competition at the August 2015 Deathmatch.

Outstanding scripts and terrific cold read performances by the actors made it a night to remember. No quarter was given or taken. Victoria "Twinkle" Stubbs made a triumphant debut as host, and her theme "The Feeling is Mutual" was very popular indeed.
