It is with immense pleasure and excitement that we can confirm the follow up production to ‘THAT PENIS THING’ will make its eagerly awaited run this spring. The original show netted $36,300.00 for many local community organisations throughout Nova Scotia and we sincerely hope that our brand new show ‘THAT PENIS THING 2: The Second Coming’ will add at least as much again to the coffers of these needed and deserving projects.
Many Fire Halls, Community Centres, Health Centres, Royal Canadian Legions and other Non Profit Groups have benefited from these shows. Good causes have raised money while their audiences had a great night out sometimes laughing so hard they had minor bodily accidents.
Whether you were lucky enough or not to see the original show, please don’t miss out on this second offering. If, ‘like me’, you are reluctant to see a follow up show because it rarely lives up to your expectations and ends in disappointment, I urge you to give this one a try. The writers have worked immensely hard to ensure this production lives up to, and hopefully surpasses the first, a tough task as the first show was such a huge success.
One of the unique things about this show is the writing procedure. A structure is written which is then work-shopped and critiqued by all 9 of the cast and crew. Many ideas and suggestions are made before the scripts are re-worked and finally rehearsed. Basically, if it’s not funny to us, it’s binned.
We invite you to see the results for yourselves at the following Venues.

Although our 2012 spring run is full, if any community project wishes to put on a future performance of the show in your local town or village, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Our cast of 4 men, 4 beautiful ladies and 1 technical genius take great pride in the fact we are offering you a locally written and extremely original show. Also, we are pleased to say that most of the shows have been performed to full houses, some selling out three weeks early due to overwhelming demand. Although we are obviously pleased with the response for tickets, we are concerned that a number of people who want to see the show may miss-out. So if you are thinking of catching a performance, please get your tickets early.
