Theatre in the Park

September 5th and 18th, 2021
3:00 p.m.

Powderhorn Park

Cahoot?! Physical Theatre presents “The Great Calamity Medicine Show” at Powderhorn Park, near the corner of 14th Ave. S. and E 33rd St. Fun for all ages! In the small, quiet town of Velvet Lake, every day seems to pass by without any hiccups or headaches. That is, until a mysterious salesman and his “Cure-All” medicine show rolls into town. His charisma and sharp wit may win over the residents of this quaint town, but what soon unfolds will be remembered in the history books as: “One of the worst medical calamities on earth!”. Join Cahoot?! Physical Theatre on an adventure dissecting issues of love, greed, and medicine through the lens of Commedia Dell’Arte. Performances will be held outdoors and the audience is asked to bring their own chairs, blankets, or other comfortable seats. A small number of seats will be provided for those unable to bring their own. Donations will happily be accepted after the show. For more information visit https://www.cahootphysicaltheatre.org

COVID-19 Safety Protocol
Masks are required for guests, entertainers, staff and volunteers over 2 years of age (except when eating, drinking, performing, etc...use common sense).  Hand sanitizing stations are available throughout the festival.  Social distance.  Porchfest offers a large, outdoor space for you to spread out.  We’ve made sure to spread out amenities and vendors so this is even easier.

Stay home if you’re sick.  We’ll use our ticketing system to support contact tracing, which we truly hope won’t be necessary because of the above.
