The Tao of GRENDEL

First Thursdays of the month
Doors Open at 7:00pm, Show Starts at 7:30pm 

from Down The Rabbit Hole:
This improvised serial mockumentary is a little bit like “Waiting for Guffman,” a little bit like “The Office,” and a little bit like public group therapy for a group of hapless small town thespians.

What’s a GRENDEL?  Greater Rushville Entertainment Delivery is a venerable community theatre in Greater Rushville, that little town located about five miles west of your fondest memories.
In spite of the odds, GRENDEL performs in their “temporary” home in the basement of the Greater Rushville Church of GIC.

The pastor has wanted them out for years.  The shows always run at a loss.  The tech is often disastrous. Someone always forgets crucial lines.

Yet somehow, the stalwart members of GRENDEL keep showing up, dusting off the ol’ costumes and shining up their somewhat careworn hopes and dreams. These performers severely test the statement that can be found in just about every review of them written in the hometown paper: “almost as good as a Broadway show!”  Frankly, Broadway, it ain’t. Fascinating, funny, and sometimes heartbreaking, we predict it will be. Join us the first Thursday of every month!
