Friday Night Funny: Majestic Science Theatre 3000 – Fantastic Four (1994). 7:30 p.m. Just because there’s a pandemic doesn’t mean Dr. Jimbo is going to let the blackshirts off without a cinematic punishment. Instead, he gave them a Zoom account and has rained down his wrath upon them in the form of the 1994 UNRELEASED Marvel movie The Fantastic Four. Presented…by Roger Corman. That’s right. Let the pain and suffering begin. Join the imprisoned blackshirts for this cinematic train wreck on Friday, May 29th at 7pm. Visit https://www.facebook.com/events/271055337416424 for more info.

Majesticpiece Theatre: Tartuffe by Moliere. 7:30 p.m. From the director: I am so “chuffed” to bring to life one of the greatest and silliest of satires, Moliere’s masterpiece, Tartuffe! In a time when we are all suffering from cabin fever, what better cure than a farce that takes aim at a hypocritical man of privilege, selling a bill of goods in order to enrich himself and increase his social standing? Art imitating life! If we didn’t laugh, we’d cry! I’m looking forward to a rollicking good time with some stage talent who have comedy in their veins and an impish glint their eye! The genius of Moliere, adapted by our resident versifier Rachel, in iambic pentameter and rhyming couplets! Together we will share some smiles with a world desperately in need of a good laugh!
