In 2002, I sat down with Jason Geis, Micah Philbrook, Christian Carranza and Kristine Kitts and we came up with the idea for what would eventually become pH Productions. If you don’t already know pH Productions is my comedy theater company. We’re coming up on our 10 year anniversary this November. I never imagined that it would last this long, but just won’t die. It keeps chugging along because of all sorts of awesome people that love this silly little company as much as I do. Yesterday, it was announced by some of those very same awesome people that pH officially has its very own theater.
This may not sound like a big deal, but it is. For the past 10 years we’ve been renting our theater space from other theater companies. If they were doing a show with an elaborate set that looked like a jungle, we had to adapt and do our shows in that jungle. If they were doing a show with a set that involved several oversized pieces of cheese with trap doors (this actually happened), we had to do our shows in and around those pieces of cheese. Sometimes it was awesome, sometimes it sucked but we kept doing shows. Because we’re professionals. Those days are now behind us. From this point forward (or the point when we actually open the theater) we will be doing our shows on our stage built specifically for us, by us. Our name will be on the door — and hopefully on a large sign outside.
Again. Holy shit.
There is still a lot of work to do but right now I’m just going to enjoy the fact that we finally have our own space. A pH theater. How about that?
If you’d like to help us with our theater, you can go to my fundraising page and donate whatever bit of change you can afford. Please give a little something. We’ve got lots of toilet paper to buy.
