"Round and Round this wicked world we ride...who knows when or why"

Central Theatre Ensemble is proud to present the world premiere of Scott Warrender's newest musical, Blankity-Blank!, a tongue-in-cheek melodrama packed with madcap frivolity and quirky characters. The twist, making this one of the most wildly original plays ever staged, is that the audience will use a fill-in-the-blank form to determine key character and plot information. Every performance is different, but all lead to a climactic decision by the audience, which will determine one of five possible endings. The audience is a fully participatory character, deciding the names, occupations, and ultimately, the direction these characters will travel as they journey through a madcap, fun-filled story line. The musical quickly becomes a great work-out for audience and actors alike as they feed-off of each other's energy, imaginations, and wits. Who will live? Who will love? How will it end? Only the audience can decide. Because every performance is different, bring your 'Blankity-Blank' ticket stub to the box office and get half price admission to a second viewing of the show!
