Underground theatre debutes in Lake Worth

The Outspokin performed in the new Lake Worth Arts District  (Royal Poinciana neighborhood)in a warehouse.  The show “Mermutants”  deserved more press but then there was standing room only after all.

Upon entering, there is no ticket booth so I searched to pay someone my $5 suggested ticket price.  Wandering through the cavernous warehouse spotted more bikes than in a bike shop.  An introduction by Waffle, “you can repair your own bike here with expert assistance”.  and please don’t bring him anything more he has an issue with hording. Next person I met had another unusual name so I fit right in,  Haven’t I been  using a nomenclature  “AuntMermaid” for more than 20 some * years .P1040011The Pre Show took place in the back of the warehouse. A delightful  skit welcoming all to the show.  This then morphed into a very well done acrobatic piece  by the two girls in gold tights seen in photo below . Could cirque du Soleil be in the future?  You have to admire their enthusiasm.P1040020 Close to 50 people were in attendance. The crowd then meandered to the front of the housewhere the stage was set. The unspoken reserved front row was occupied by the little people,  The show started fashionably late, scheduled for 7 p.m. curtain so to speak went up at 8:10 P1040021  This play and actors could easily make it into a future Carl Hiaasen book.   It was brilliant, deserves to be seen.   Mermutants  opens with a young woman with an Alabama accent lauding the haves and how they will have waterfront property in their gated community when the rest of the world goes to shit.  So we see what can happen to our ecco- system if we do not take care.   This was staged with wry humor,  costumes with enough sparkle plenty and of course front row got slimed.  How fun.  Highly recommend supporting this wonderful group of actors and their effort to bring this kind of play to our community.

Is there another show? don’t know but will let you know.  Someone suggested that LULA or CRA get involved. NOT  They need support not oversight. With this kind of creativity the arts are thriving in the Lake Worth Arts district.
