March 15, 2013 is the grand opening of OYSTER BAY ALL STAR COMEDY NIGHT SERIES at Planting Fields. The event, coproduced by Periwinkles Caterers and SGF Productions, will feature Improv Comedy by EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH (AKA LMAOff Broadway), Walt Frasier (Letterman, MTV) and Paul DeGrocco (LI Ducks, b103 DJ, Voted Long Island’s Official Greeter by Newsday Readers in 2007). The bar and restaurant will be open 8pm thru midnight. Tickets, $20-35 via OvationTix 866.811.4111) to the 9pm show are now on sale.
The event (and future performances in the series) will be held at the Historic Hay Barn at Planting Fields Arboretum State Historic Park (www.plantingfields.com), Long Island’s premier public arboretum and historic site located in Oyster Bay, New York. A former Gold Coast estate, the arboretum is comprised of 409 acres of greenhouses, rolling lawns, formal gardens, woodland paths, and outstanding plant collections. The original historic estate buildings remain including the 65 room Tudor Revival mansion, Coe Hall, which is open for tours spring through fall.
If you like “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” you will love EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH (www.8improv.com). However with a touch of MTV edge, Off Broadway Musical Revue and the interactive of Murder Mystry Dinner Theater, EIGHT IS NEVR ENOUGH delivers a high energy topical and musical comedy that reaches a larger audience than most Improvisation. No two shows are ever the same because you determine the topics for comedic scenes and songs while many audience volunteer help directly on stage. Although recent shows have had a field day with the Fiscal Cliff/Sequestration, NYC Bus Strike, Sandy Clean Up, holiday vacations, Hockey Strike, Superbowl Black out and so much more. The show plays weekly in NYC at the Broadway Comedy Club and tours Nationwide to Clubs, Theaters, Schools and Private Events. All of the cast are NYC theater pros and comics from Broadway, TV and Film. COME BE A PART OF THE SHOW!
