Comedy and Variety with Front Yard Theatre Collective:
Olympia resident company, and the creative engine behind the Olympia Lobby LIVE! variety show, FRONT YARD THEATER COLLECTIVE, goes global with their QUARANTINE AROUND THE WORLD series.
Their unique variety show checks in on worldwide friends, family, frenemies, and creatives to see how they’re coping with quarantine in different parts of the world. Funny and silly, with a little bit of WTF - the energy, humor, and love from their Olympia shows streams to you live on Friday nights.
Catch them here on Fridays @ 6:30p
Spanish Movies with EGEDA - (Recent Cinema From Spain):
Olympia’s partner behind the annual RECENT CINEMA FROM SPAIN series is EGEDA-US the US-based Iberoamerican producers association.
EGEDA-US has pulled together a group of short films for the “shorties” a/k/a “los niños”. These award winning short films are suitable for young audiences, particularly those who are learning Spanish, and are absolutely FREE.
The collection is here – all films in Spanish w/o subtitles
Stories with WPOE - (Worst Place On Earth):
The weird, whacky, wanton and wicked state we call home – Florida - is front, center and an absolute goldmine for stories, characters, and musical stuff in WORST PLACE ON EARTH.
The podcast from playwright/actor Jessica Farr, and playwright/actor Caleb Scott is a whole series of “Flori-duh Man” and “Flori-duh Woman” stories. The WPOE-LIVE! version presented by Olympia Theater featured stories “ripped” from the back pages of your favorite rag like: Clearwater man and woman go on drinking binge after stealing two accessibility carts from Wal-Mart”, “Brickell influencer busted for illegal activities after flaunting spoils on social media”, “Man beats husband with Big Mouth Bass after domestic argument”, and “Security guard goes viral”.
Jessica and Caleb have been busy, there's now a whole collection of "Florida’s Best People" in the WPOE catalog. Listen here – or download episodes from your favorite pod-service.
