BooTown says
Grown-up Storytime turns 100 this season! Can you believe it? We can’t either. To celebrate this momentous occasion we are doing a Best of the Best of the Best of the first 10 years. There’s gonna be killer stories from the beginning until now, blasts from the past in town to perform and give hugs and hi fives, and a few more surprises even we don’t know about yet. We are very excited to have this event at The Secret Group, a killer new venue east of downtown and home to our other monthly event Neo Benshi.

6:30 – Pre Show panel featuring original BooTown members, liaisons from GUST LA and GUST Boston, and led by JJ Johnston of Classical Theater Company.
7:30 – GUST 100 show 1
9:30 – GUST 100 show 2
11 – AFTERPARTY!! The Secret Group has a 90’s dance party this night and we’ll have plenty of room to hang out, catch up, and get down.

We’ll have two separate totally different shows in one night so we can fit more stories in. Tickets available via The Secret Group at this link – http://www.thesecretgrouphtx.com/calendar/. Just scroll down the calendar until you see GUST 100 and pick whether you would like 7:30 or 9:30 (or both!). General Admission tickets are $20 and VIP tickets are $40. VIP tickets are the front two rows, roomier, and will have special giveaways during the show. We will also have tickets for sale in person at all events leading up.

We love you all. Thank you for helping us get here. Go team!

(yes there will be a regular GUST on Tuesday that week at Rudz too. It’s a GUST-ravaganza!!)
