Carbohydrate Catastrophe (An Adventure in Non Sequitur)

By Stella Bouyer, Owen Close, Willow Harrington, Izzy McFarland, and Cole Thurman

If the multiverse really is real, it would probably be a lot more random than the movies let us believe. Welcome to Carbohydrate Catastrophe, a multiverse adventure with the villainous Sophie, whose potato experiment punches a hole in the multiverse and disrupts EVERYTHING!

Levi, Napkin, Zote, and Joanna–all from different universes–have to make sense of the mess they’re in, make a plan to defeat Sophie, and handle whatever the multiverse throws at them. Which never, NEVER makes sense.


Rehearsals for Carbohydrate Catastrophe

Rehearsals begin around October 17th. We will likely have two casts. Cast A will rehearse 5:30-7:00 pm Mondays/Thursdays, and 1:00-2:30 pm on Saturdays. Cast B will rehearse 7:00-8:30 Mondays/Thursdays, and 2:30-4:00 on Saturdays. Once Saturday classes conclude, Cast A and Cast B will rehearse earlier in the day, replacing Saturday classes.

If your child has smaller part, you can expect 1-2 rehearsals a week; if they have a medium part, 2-3 rehearsals a week. If they have a large part, they should expect to attend all three rehearsals each week.

The performances for Carbohydrate Catastrophe are January 13-15. There are no rehearsals December 20-Jan 5.
