Theatre At The Museum - Eat The Runt
donna scott productions, Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture and Charlotte Art League come together for "Eat The Runt," a comedy by Avery Crozier.
Providing a completely novel and participatory theatre experience for Charlotte audiences, "Eat the Runt" requires that all eight actors in the cast learn every role and audition for the audience before each performance. The audience will cast the show using their smartphones and watch as the actors they cast deftly play out one of the over 40,000 possible casting combinations. Join us for an exclusive opening night* event at the Gantt Center Thursday, September 7!
The plot of "Eat the Runt" follows Merritt, a grants manager candidate, through a series of increasingly bizarre interviews for a position at an esteemed art museum. Eat the Runt focuses a sharply comedic eye on the themes of political correctness, office politics, sexual harassment, religious persuasions, and societal and cultural norms related to gender and race. The result is a unique, hilarious and sometimes surprising performance that will never be the same show twice.

This production was made possible by donna scott productions 2017 season sponsors Historic South End, Next Stage Consulting; beer sponsor Triple C Brewing and a Cultural Vision Grant from The Arts and Science Council.
* Please note: The opening night performance will occur at the Gantt Center. All other performances will be at Charlotte Art League
