Broken Hearts Comedy Club$15
Was Valentine’s Day a letdown this year… again? Well, forget about all that romantic stuff and come around to Players of Utica for some laughs! Share your fractured heart with the rest of the crowd, wipe the tears away, and enjoy a night of comedy with some of the best local comics, zany skits, and lots more off-the-wall craziness. You’ll walk away with a mended heart full of joy!
Note: This event not suitable for children.
This event is part of Players of Utica’s “Build-a-Theater Fundraiser” Series — a campaign to raise funds for the completion of our main stage theater. Since we opened the doors in our building at 1108 State Street (after a devastating fire that destroyed our Oxford Rd. theater in 1999), we’ve been staging our performances in our Black Box theater. And although we’ve made the best possible use of that space, our regular-season productions should be staged in our large main theater. The space is there, but it’s going to take quite a bit of money to complete that theater.
Let’s be honest — it’s going to require a lot of money… for seating, curtains, lighting, sound systems, prop and scenery rooms, dressing rooms, and all the technical equipment a proper theater needs — and a respected community theater deserves. Players of Utica has been bringing professional-quality theater to Central New York for over 100 years! Help us continue in a theater space that will allow us to bring to you even bigger and better shows.
So please help us in our 2019 Build-a-Theater fundraising campaign by coming to our special events, like the Broken Hearts Comedy Club above, our regular season shows, and other events. And even if you can’t make it to a particular show (although we always love to see you in the audience; that’s why we perform!), you can still donate. See our Support page for details.
