PSL Gets Evicted! Sketch Comedy Show
December 14, 2016, 8:00 PM
PSL Gets Evicted! features local real estate magnate Ed Wagenseller (playing himself), who has gone drunk with power and bought up every theater in town, intending to demolish all of them so he can build a brand-new chain of coffee shops. TheatreNOW is the last one on his list. It’s up to Wesley Brown (Michael Cera) and the rest of the Pineapple Shaped Lamps gang to put a stop to Ed’s evil scheme and save TheatreNOW before it’s too late. Tickets are available for purchase online. (FYI: TheatreNOW isn’t actually in any real danger)
