Groove On:
You Matter
November 9, 2019 

 A show, a raffle, drinks and a swanky locale! 

Groove On is T&G's annual fundraising event.  This year's show, You Matter, is inspired by your reflections on times that you felt you mattered... and who told you so!  Ticket sales fund T&G's mission to help people connect in a disconnected world.  In addition, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the You Matter Marathon, a global initiative that creates positive connections between individuals and within communities by sharing cards that say 'You Matter.'  Go to  https://youmattermarathon.com/ to learn about YMM and watch a terrific short video about their program.  You Matter Marathon - no running required!

Groove On takes place at L'Etage Cabaret, Bar and Restaurant -- a charming space above Beau Monde restaurant on 6th & Bainbridge.

Watch this space for more info about our performance and raffle prizes!

Whether you have a tattoo, want a tattoo, or would never get a tattoo, what are those things so important in your life that they are indelibly etched in your heart, if not on your skin?

Here’s what will happen at INK:   When you arrive, you'll be asked to anonymously fill out a card with the answer to this prompt: “Briefly tell us something about your tattoo – the meaning behind its words or symbols, or the story behind how you got it.  If you don’t have a tattoo: what words or symbols are so important to you that you feel they are etched in your heart?”  The responses are collected in a basket and randomly selected by the actors, who use your stories to inspire our improvised one-hour montage of scenes and monologues.

In addition, as you enter the theater, you'll be invited to have your tattoo photographed, if you're comfortable.  During a portion of the show, the photographed tattoos will be projected onto a screen, & we will use the images to inspire our improvisation.

The content of the show will not focus on tattoos, but rather on what the tattoos represent – a person or place, a concept or feeling – as always, T&G will use that information to create scenes of life experiences & relationships.   
Arrive Early: 
Free Pre-show Tattoo Fun!
