Our ensemble is champing at the bit to do something for you, even in self-isolation. So far Colleen Cherry has started a “Ukulele Covers for Hard Times” series on YouTube. Amy Gray gave us a day-in-her-life (on her birthday, to boot) from snowy Colorado, and now Roxanne Fay comes forth with a great idea:

Tongue in Your Tail Tales.

You remember MadLibs, right? Well, check this out:

MadLib Sonnet 1 from Jobsite Theater on Vimeo.

So, to recap, this is what we are doing:

  • We have selected a seekrit Shakespeare sonnet that will be unveiled once all of the words are chosen.
  • To choose a word, go to our Donate page, select the “Other” amount and enter in whatever you feel good about — even $1.
    • A reminder, pick from:

      7 nouns 

      4 verbs 

      7 adjectives 

      1 saucy adverb 

  • Enter the word you would like in the comment field when you donate, eg “Noun – Dog.”
  • Submit your donation and we will update our sonnet.
  • You have until Monday to vote on who will perform the finished MadLib!

Look, we’re not computer programmers nor do we have a super high-tech website. We’re sure that we could have put something together easier to work with but we wanted to try to get something out rough-and-ready. If this first trial goes well, we’ll look to see how we can improve it. If you like the idea, we can keep doing these as a way to entertain you and help us toward our Annual Campaign goal — now even more critical considering all that is going on.

Have fun!
