Ill bet you remember the teachers pet in your school, the one who always got to lead the line and erase the board at the end of the day, or whatever typical tasks Teacher gave out to his or her favorite. If you still feel bitter and left out from your time in elementary school, then you need to get thee to Buntport Theaters Teachers Pet, sponsored by Found magazine.
Its a live show-and-tell, and the winner gets a prize, explains Brian Colonna, who co-hosts the show with Erin Rollman. Anything goes. Most often what people do is tell a story, but people have brought in objects before journals; if you want to show a picture, you can; if you want to play music. Oftentimes, people sing or lip-sync. You just have five minutes, and its pretty wide open.
And they do adhere strictly to the five-minute rule, so dont go crying home to Mommy if you go long and get kicked off the stage.
This time around, the theme is Home for the Holidays: Family Traditions and New Years Eve Stories. Admission is $4 to $6, depending on your luck, and beer is included. Stop by Buntport at 7:30 p.m. to sign up; the tardy bell rings at 8. Buntport is at 717 Lipan Street; for information, visit www.buntport.com or call 720-946-1388.
