I'M PRODUCING A PLAY
Freak Up the Street is a new play written and directed by Billy Blob and produced by Bryan Colley. Billy Blob is the artist and filmmaker who created the animated sequences in last year's hit Fringe Festival play Voyage to Voyager at the planetarium in Union Station. He enjoyed his Fringe experience so much that he wrote his first play for this year's festival.
Andy Garrison stars as William, a middle aged man who finds it easier to play dead than face his past. With the help of his time machine, William soon comes face to face with an eccentric childhood neighbor who is William’s most painful memory and possibly his last hope. William Grey Warren, Davis Lee DeRock Jr and Sallie Downing also star in this nostalgic, humorous and mostly true story of childhood. Stage direction by Laura Burt.
Freak Up the Street will be at the Unicorn Theatre's Levin Stage, 3828 Main Street, on the following dates:
- 11:00pm Friday, July 22
- 5:00pm Saturday, July 23
- 8:00pm Monday, July 25
- 6:30pm Wednesday, July 27
- 9:30pm Thursday, July 28
- 8:00pm Saturday, July 30
Tickets are $10 with a $5 Fringe Button (available at the box office). For more information visit www.billyblob.com or for tickets go to www.kcfringe.org

The five one-act plays in this book all premiered at the Kansas City Fringe Festival between 2008 and 2012, and each was awarded “Best of Fringe” the year it premiered. They now seek out new life at Fringe Festivals around the world.
In 1941, five people, led by writer and adventurer William Seabrook, gathered in a remote Maryland cabin to put a curse on Adolf Hitler and end World War II using witchcraft. This is the true story of what happened that night.
German soldiers in occupied territories are contracting syphilis from prostitutes in astounding numbers. The disease threatens the stability of the Third Reich. To solve the problem, Adolf Hitler orders the creation of inflatable pleasure dolls that the soldiers can carry in their packs to satisfy their urges. Yes, this is also a true story.
It begins as a steamy, sex-filled comedy, until one of the actresses curses the playwright and quits the play in the middle of a scene. What follows is a Pirandello-styled farce that deconstructs theatre and feminism.
Khaaaaan! the Musical
After Khan attacks the Enterprise crew in the 23rd century, Kirk, Spock and Bones go back in time to find the world locked in a perpetual 1980s culture lorded over by the guitar god Khan. This rock-n-roll parody of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan explores our nostalgic fixation on the past.
Jesus Christ, King of Comedy
Jesus goes into show business and becomes the biggest entertainer in the Middle East despite his rocky relationship with his non-biological father Joseph. The play uses the familiar tale of Christ to satirize our celebrity worshiping society.
