Nozes Off opens This Saturday!

Click here to purchase tickets to Nozes Off!

January 14 – 29, The Hideout Theatre presents Nozes Off, a look behind the grease paint into the lives of a clown troupe. Nozes Off gives the audience a peek behind the curtain and into the psyche of performers as they transform from average, every-day people into their outrageous clown alter-egos.

The six characters of Nozes Off will take the audience through an entire night of clowning, from call time, when the actors show up in their street clothes and start smearing clown white across their cheeks, to after the curtain falls and the wash rags, cold cream and self-reflection come out.

Nozes Off is the brainchild of Jessica Arjet, a 15-year clowning veteran. The inspiration for Nozes Off was born the day Arjet showed her clown-makeup process to a group of children. “They watched the entire process, almost silently. I have never seen a room that still,” Arjet says. “That was the first time I realized that the behind the scenes might be as interesting or more interesting than the show.”

Nozes Off stars Jessica Arjet, Kareem Badr, Marc Majcher, Suzanne Link, Kacey Samiee and Tyler Lane. Shows are Saturday January 14, 9pm; Sunday Jan 15, 7pm; Saturday Jan 21, 9pm; Sunday Jan 22, 7pm; Friday Jan 27, 7:30pm; Saturday Jan 28, 9pm.

Nozes Off contains adult content, so no kiddos at this clown show, please.

Start Trekkin’ Opens Jan. 7th!

Get your tickets to Start Trekkin’ now!

Prepare to explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations this January and February at the Hideout Theatre. Our hit show, Start Trekkin, is returning to the Hideout stage to create brand new episodes set in the galaxy of Star Trek.

Every Saturday at 8pm in January and February, the cast of Start Trekkin will take you on a never-before-seen, never-to-be-seen-again trek through the many worlds of the beloved, campy 1960s sci-fi TV show by cleverly blending audience suggestions and Star Trek canon.

The ship won’t be the Enterprise, Kirk won’t be the captain. The intrepid improvisers of Start Trekkin will create an entirely new crew of stoic officers, goofy crewmen and doomed redshirts. Expect aliens, phasers, interspecies love affairs and over-the-top fight sequences in abundance. Expect to go where no one has gone before and will never go again.
