June 3, 2015 Deathmatch - "RACISM"

The theme is Racism. The winning 10 minute script claims the 5th spot in King of Crows IV. Bring a play, act, or spectate!

Our scheduled host, "Sassy" Beth Chasse is, unfortunately, unable to attend, so the hosting duties will be shouldered by the CBC Committee as a whole. Yeah, we pretty much make this up as we go.

$5 at the door (cash only) for participants and audience members alike, and there's also a cash bar. We will see you all on 6/3!

New Committee Member

CBC is thrilled to announce that Victoria Stubbs has been appointed to the Crowbait Club Committee.

A Crow from the begining, Victoria is a very active music educator and artist.  She is a founding member of Mad Horse Theatre Company.  She is also the director of the music program at PATHS and the long term music director for the Good Theater where she performs regularly.  She holds a masters in piano performance from University of Southern California and has toured extensively. Most importantly, she coached and music directed CBC's musical night and founded King of Crows's infamous Murder Band.

While congratulating Victoria on her appointment to the CBCC, we would be remiss not to mention how many Crows offered their help and assistance to the Committee and volunteered to serve. 
We are truly honored by your interest and willingness to be of service. Thank you.

So Long!

Hey there Crows! Cullen McGough here- it is with great sadness I announce that I'm stepping down from the Crowbait Club organizing committee. Never fear, the same great show will be back again next month under your cruel, but handsome leaders: Mike Tooher, Beth Chasse. Charlie Cole and Jody Newguywassisname.

It's been a great pile of fun for me but I'm stepping down to pursue a couple of other projects including the fantastic CBC entry for Portfringe in June: "Aliens Vs. Beckett", written by me, Directed by C. Cole and starring the lovely Beth Chasse. (

I hope to see you all again at one of the monthly Deathmatches, but next time I'll just be another poor slob hoping to get my name pulled from the bucket.

Thank you all!
