Said And Done: Best Fest w/Uncle Jesse

  • Urban Harvest Brewing Company 1024 S. 5th Street Milwaukee, WI 53204 (map)

Ampersand Theater Company is proud to present SAID AND DONE, a unique combination of story slam and improv. Each show features a unique theme to serve as inspiration for the comedy.

This month's theme is BEST FEST. Summer in the City of Festivals is MADE for unforgettable stories. Tell us about it!

Whether it’s about your first time dancing on a picnic table or your last time in a parade, the time you finally got to see your favorite band live or the time it all went wrong, festival season is filled with the highest highs and lowest lows.

And we want to hear about it! Come to the show with a short (3 to 5-minute) prepared monologue, and let us know you'd like to participate. Speakers will be selected to share their tales during the show.

After your story is all SAID AND DONE, our ensemble (Mike Betette, Fredrick James Dakin III, Pat Dwyer, Patrick Guiney, Audra Handschke, Sam Hanson, Sean Keith, and Renee Ann) will perform a montage of improvised scenes inspired by it!

You'll also see longform improv from UNCLE JESSE. (Alecia Altstaetter, Grant Egan, Michael Kittelson, Danny Lang, and Hannah Tähtinen).

It all takes place at Urban Harvest Brewing Company, where they brew hand-crafted ales and lagers in small batches several times a week. This creates a versatile line-up of beers to choose from, as well as adventurous seasonal and specialty brews.

Enjoy a pint or two before, during and after the show!
