Enjoy an evening out that’s all about pie! Start at Taste for dinner, featuring a special pie menu just for this show. Then stay for Theater Grottesco’s “Pie.” CC students may present their Gold Cards at the door for a FREE ticket.

Theater Grottesco is an ensemble theater company that creates original performances. Their website describes the show like this: “PIE is a layman’s exploration of what happens when you don’t know what to do next, inspired by the Carl Sagan quote, “If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.” and the Kate Tempest poem Brand New Ancients, “Yes, the gods are on the park bench, the gods are on the bus, / The gods are all here, the gods are in us.” Trailer here for a glimpse of the style. Not to be missed!

Shows start at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday with a Sunday matinee at 2pm. Plan your evening with a dinner reservation by calling (719) 634-5583. See you there!
