We are pleased to announce the newest performance company, The Foundry Performance Laboratory, in Cedar Rapids. Jason Alberty, long-time veteran actor/director/producer, has launched The Foundry Forge, the performance arm of his creativity company The Foundry Performance Laboratory. The first of their four-show season opens on August 10th at 7:30 at Shores Event Center. Tickets are only $10, with open seating and a cash bar.
“I want people who might ordinarily go to movie to be able to see live theatre for the same price, or less,” says Alberty. “Ten bucks for a ticket and five a beer for live theatre, as opposed to an $18 or $20 night for a movie? I would take live theatre!”
Shores Event Center Owner, Mindy Seiffert, says, “Offering unique and interactive theater in our venue has been a dream of ours since we opened our doors. Jason Alberty and The Foundry are now helping us make this become a reality!”
The first show, Men of Tortuga, by Jason Wells, is a crazy assassination caper. “It’s like Quentin Tarantino, without the blood. And live,” says Alberty.
