Out of Funds
the Out of Bounds Dinner and a Show Fundraiser
w/ Special Guests Susan Messing and Rachael Mason


Join us for the 1st Annual Out of Funds; Dinner and a Show Fundraiser. Out of Bounds will be going into its 12th year this Labor Day Weekend and as the festival continues to grow every year, so do costs. So, what's the best thing to do when you're low on funds...?
Have a HUGE PARTY!

Your exclusive invitation will get you a seat for a full-length Messing with Mason show, a fancy catered dinner, live music from the Misfolks (Austin's premiere Folk-infused Misfits Cover Band,) and the opportunity to bid on silent and live auction items; all benefitting the biggest comedy event of the year for the improv/sketch/stand-up community.

Money from this fundraiser will go to booking awesome talent, keeping ticket and badge prices reasonable, and paying rent at our 9 venues for 2013.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 4
Scottish Rite Theatre
$30 Ticket Includes:
7pm - Catered Dinner w/ Misfolks
9pm - Messing w/ Mason Improv Show
Silent and Live Auctions Throughout


Susan and Rachael are also teaching master classes throughout the weekend (registration coming soon.)

As a founding member of The Annoyance Theater, she has created roles in over 30 original productions including 'Co-Ed Prison Sluts.' Her work there and at the iO Theater over the last 30+ years has elevated her status to legendary, now being regarded as one of the teachers at the forefront of improvisational comedy. She performs and teaches at iO, the Annoyance, DePaul, Loyola, and the University of Chicago. The Chicago Tribune called her "one of Chicago's finest improvisers - male or female."

After graduating with a degree in English Literature, concentrating on Shakespearean Studies, she moved to Chicago to study improv comedy with Del Close. She trained at The Second City, The Annoyance, and iO. Currently she performs with The Second City Improv Allstars, and The Playboys. She is most happy when she is teaching improv.

Is there any word on what the menu for the dinner will be? Some of us are watching for certain dietary needs.
