Southlands Got Talent Contest
A Comedy Improv & Open Mic Variety Show night
Our contest is such a success every year, we just have to continue offering this show to the community.

This season we’ll have some surprises for you, including the audience and panel of judges will be awarding prizes to the top 3 contestants, so bring plenty of family and friends. Also, both Kidz on the Bridge and Graffiti on the Fourth Wall Comedy Improv Troupes will be assisting with the contest while performing their own brand of wit and zaniness (they will not be contestants).. If you wish to sing, tell jokes, dance, do a monologue, magic, play an instrument, your own improv scenes, etc., this is the stage for you. Doors open at 6:45pm.
Performance: March 18 at 7:00 PM
Community Theater: A Streetcar Named Desire
A tragic and effective drama which ranks as one of the greatest in theatre. STREETCAR reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche du Bois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores.
Performances: April 22 and 29 at 7:00 PM; April 23 and 30 at 3:00 PM
Children’s Theater: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Follow that rabbit to a delightful, entertaining world of childhood fantasies. Alice journeys into a world of talking animals, comic royalty and races where the contestants run in circles! The play gives a modern view to an old classic, where nonsense makes quite good sense.
Performances: May 19 at 6 PM; May 20 at 4:30 pm; May 21 at 2:00 PM
Teen Theater: Arsenic and Old Lace
Join us as we meet the charming and innocent ladies who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers; the antics of their brother who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt; and the activities of the other brother along with his accomplice, Dr. Einstein—scary and dastardly as they are. This famous comedy produced a successful smash hit in New York and on the road and is one of the most popular plays on any stage.
Performances: May 19 at 8:30 PM; May 20 at 7:00 PM; May 21 at 4:30 PM
