"IDA" (Susan Poulin) is comin' back to the Footlights Theatre! March 30 & 31 at 7:30pm with a "never seen here" show, I MARRIED AN ALIEN! Ida asks, "Have you ever looked at your husband and thought, Wait a minute, who is this guy? I mean, what planet is he from? The kicker is, you know there’s times when he’s wonderin’ the exact same thing about you!" Ida, “the funniest woman in Maine,” will give you her take on love, marriage and what to do when the double-wide’s feelin’ just a little small for the both of you. The Women Who Run With the Moose get to throw in their two cents, too, and yes, even Ida’s husband Charlie manages to squeeze a word in edgewise. (No mean feat!) Don’t miss what happens when worlds collide!
STORIES ON STAGE is “our version” of The Moth, the acclaimed program dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of the story and the storytellers- who voices share true tales of ordinary life, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. Our shows will showcase a great range of human experience. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, we will create a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience. The audience will vote for their favorite story/storyteller and he/she will receive a prize! As The Moth so brilliantly does, our hope is that the “stories dissolve socio-economic barriers, expose vulnerabilities, and quietly suggest ways to overcome challenges and see with new eyes”.
