Event Mister Roberts Dates/Times Friday – November 11, 2016 at 8:00 PM Saturday- November 12, 2016 at 2:00pm & 8:00 PM Sunday – November 13, 2017 at 2:00 PM Description Present by Pittsburg Community Theatre. This rowdy, realistic saga of a group of American sailors aboard a Navy cargo vessel in the Pacific shows the crew suffering from that deadly boredom that is part of the routine of war. To the ship’s company, the Skipper is a cantankerous, small-minded man and every one of them conspires against him as the ship pursued its runs from Apathy to Tedium and back again. They are on a cargo mission, so little else is going to happen. That Mr. Roberts, [a lieutenant] shared the crew’s dislike for the Captain was one reason for his popularity. Roberts joined the world to fight; he hates being inactive almost as much as he hates the Captain. Privy to the crew’s hijinks against the Skipper, Roberts still feels it’s his duty to retain some discipline. After winning many ingenious battles against the Skipper, Roberts at last wins himself a transfer to combat duty. It was this transfer that cost him his life on a destroyer off Japan.

Event Will Durst in Elect to Laugh 2016 Dates/Times October 8, 2016 @ 8PM Description ELECT TO LAUGH with Will Durst is a hysterical hybrid chasing down the presidential election cycle like white on rice with material as up to date as the latest tweet from DC. It will blend monologues and commentary and perhaps the occasional rant. The show’s intent is to blur the traditional boundaries between stand-up comedy and theater. Through innovation, experimentation, and a ravenous appetite for accessing the topical via the jugular, Durst is out to prove that jokes are not the enemy. With descendants of Mark Twain, George Carlin, and Spalding Gray, Durst will twist the rhythm of stand-up with poetry, punditry, and puzzles o’plenty, planting the production solidly in the strictures and structures of a deconstructed one-man show. Or solo performance piece. Whatever. With a single aim: to mock and scoff and taunt, but with taste. Consider it political comedy for people who don’t like politics.
