I've got a pair of tickets to give away to tonight's fundraiser for Action/Adventure Theatre, the fine folks responsible for the popular shows Fall of the Band, Troll 2: The Musical, and Late Night Action with Alex Falcone.


Action/Adventure invited local writers like Chelsea Cain, Ian Karmel, and Live Wire's Courtenay Hameister to create an original piece of flash fiction, and then handed each piece off to a performer or ensemble who was challenged to create an original work inspired by the writing.

Tonight's show will feature readings followed by short performances; performers include Atomic Arts (Trek in the Park), Trip the Dark, Portland Experimental Theater Ensemble, and the duo behind the recently debuted musical Water Man, who've created an original mini-musical just for tonight.

Plus, music from everybody's favorite nerd-pop duo The Doubleclicks! (They're the best.)

To win a a pair of tickets to tonight's show, email me with "Inspired By" in the headline by 2 pm today; I'll contact the winner shortly thereafter. Tickets will also be available at the door, $12-15, and online here.

Inspired by is tonight at the Secret Society Ballroom, 116 NE Russell, 8 pm.

(Full disclosure: I have a gajillion conflicts-of-interest with this show, most notably that my boyfriend organized it.)
