12 Awesome Things to Do This Weekend, July 31 - Aug. 3

Chipping Smooth Immersive theater is not a synonym for participatory theater. So you won't need to bring a monologue or warm up your vocal chords before attending Chipping Smooth this weekend. In fact, please don't. It does mean that you will be part of the theatrical experience. You'll be amidst the performers as they ignore conventional methods of theatrical performance and dramatic narrative to embrace everything from music to multimedia, to poetry to cinematic projections. There won't be aisle seats, plots, or intermissions, so we're really not sure what you should expect. But this free night of entertainment is happening for one weekend only with performances at 8:30 p.m. Thursday - Sunday nights. Oh, and by the way it happens in the carriage house behind 201 N. Montclair Ave. Yeah, you're in for an adventure.

We may not know much about the event, but we know we certainly won't be missing it. Questions? Email [email protected]
