Paonia Players is back! Presenting "March Monologue Madness" Friday and Saturday, March 16 and 17, 7 p.m. at the Paradise Theater in Paonia. A twist on this month's basketball tournament, the event will bring 16 actors to the stage, performing 30 different monologues, with the audience voting on which actors advance to the next round. One winner will be named at each performance.
Directed by Merrily Talbott and hosted by Adam Burke, March Monologue Madness is an evening of PG-13 theater. From Shakespeare to Charlie Brown, the monologues will draw on material that is dramatic, comedic and inspiring.
Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 day of show, and can be found online at brownpapertickets.com and at the theater.
