Is your love story one for the ages, such as Shakespeare wrote? Or more like a comedy starring Tina Fey? Paper Slip Theatre is bringing audience love stories to life as they marry “The Dating Game” to “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” The improv group will present “When We First Met” 8:00 p.m. Friday, February 17, at Jacoby Arts Center, 627 E. Broadway, Alton. “Imagine if you can turn back the clock and allow everyone to see the exact moment when you met your love. And then imagine if that looked more like a rock opera, or as if Shakespeare or Tina Fey wrote it,” says Paper Slip’s artistic director Ed Reggi. ‘When We First Met’ combines the real-life circumstances – falling in love – and invites an audience to become spectators as it all plays out.”
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door or follow the link at http://www.jacobyartscenter.org/shop. Seating is on a first-come, first-seated basis but advance ticket holders receive preferred seating. Doors open 30 minutes in advance.
