RESULTS: THEATRESPORTS™ ANNIVERSARY EDITION

The March 14th Edition of Theatresports: After losing two players (one new grandma, one reprobate) GLIC came through with two new players, including rookie Lily Cooper who did not know she was stepping in until 20 minutes before the match. Spontaneity was the key then, because each scene raised GLICs profile by a point against Chick Pees, who brought in Jeremy Butler as a ringer. Solid work in a euphemistic Maple tapping scene which made good use of stately Pillars Evan and Catherine by Chick Pees but that lead was quickly doused by GLIC’s take on “I’ll go Along with That”. A neck and neck battle which saw GLIC win 21-20. In the second half, Gary Pearson and Jan Caruana (“Gary and Jan”) phoned it in with a lovely break up scene about blabitis.  Alastair Forbes and Carmine Lucarelli (“I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, But that’s Okay because he’s an elf and his mother was Mrs Claus”) won by sheer audacity of team name, and a great Billy Joel options scene. Despite the gorgeous Sounds Like A Song, by Gary and Jan, ISMKSCBTOBHAEAHMWMC’s “What’s Up Darth?” scene, charmed the audience. Gary and Jan came back with another rejection scene at a high school reunion, and a Slapshot of Love/Saving Pirate Ryan epic, which seem to sell out on all levels (hint: Gary’s shameless plug of his book, Slapshot of Love which is available on Amazon.ca). The time challenge proved that Alastair knows little about the war of 1812, but a lot about improv, as his team pulled ahead with the victory 46-44. NEXT SHOW APRIL 11th FEATURES OUR NEW JUNIOR TEAM.
