WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER (Party at the Parkway)
The setting is Camp Firewood, the year 1981. It's the last day before everyone goes back to the real world, but there's still a summer's worth of unfinished business to resolve. At the center of the action is camp director Beth, who struggles to keep order while she falls in love with the local astrophysics professor. He is busy trying to save the camp from a deadly piece of NASA's Skylab which is hurtling toward earth. All that, plus: a dangerous waterfall rescue, love triangles, misfits, cool kids, and talking vegetable cans. The questions will all be resolved, of course, at the big talent show at the end of the day.
About Party at the Parkway:
This showing is part of "Party at the Parkway". Party at the Parkway is a patron planned event where we celebrate one of our patrons (or a group of patrons), replete with a cake and singing, and we open it up to the public. So even if you don't know anything about the group, consider coming out to celebrate.
Here's what the organizer of this event has to say:
We'll be celebrating a plethora of August birthdays; Kwadwo will be turning 26, Jenn and Jessie 27. Those three are pretty special on their own, but throw in some of their beer drinking, classic comedy loving friends and you have yourself a party. It'll be a mix of regulars (we all LOVE the new parkway) and some newbies that will likely quickly become regulars once they see the amazingness that is the New Parkway.
