“LA WEEKLY PICK OF THE WEEK… Leads you on a voyage of self-discovery.” -
Neal Weaver, LA Weekly

Critically acclaimed, award winning solo show at The Bootleg for 2 nights only!

At age 35, Michael Kass is super sad. Instead of doing normal things like therapy or drinking too much, he quits his job, goes to Peru, finds a shaman and drinks a tea renowned for making people see their worst fears. How far will one man go to find himself? And will he be able to find his way back?

Ceremony premiered at the Hollywood Fringe Festival last year and has gone on to a sold out run at Moving Arts and various nooks 'n crannies around LA. LAist called the production “Absolutely wonderful. . .a worthy lineal descendant of Spalding Gray’s Swimming to Cambodia, this Ceremony is an occasion to savor and certainly not to miss.” But you're Bootleggers; you don't care 'bout no critics. Come check it out yourself before Ceremony takes off to DC, San Diego and San Francisco!

Tickets $15

Fun for the WHOLE FAMILY!!!

Story Pirates is a national education and media organization founded in 2003 to celebrate the words and ideas of young people. By pairing world-class teachers with first-rate actors and comedians, we offer a variety of tools to make learning more engaging and effective. Dually based in New York and Los Angeles, we are best known for the Idea Storm Program, a master-class writing workshop that brings teaching concepts to life, followed by a musical sketch comedy show featuring stories by students and performed by professional artists. Our acclaimed programs and professional development services for teachers are in place at over 250 schools from coast to coast, and our podcasts and radio broadcasts are heard by kids and adults around the world.

These pirates won't make you walk the plank, but they will steal your kids' stories and use them in an hour of comedy that promotes creative writing and imagination. Equal parts educational adventure and sketch comedy musical, Story Pirates shows encourage kids to conjure worlds where cats fly or rock operas about alien tickle monsters. The stories are entirely written by kids and brought to life by professional comedians and musicians.

Tickets are $15 Online or $20 at the Door
