Magnetic Theatre in 2019 is in its tenth year of original works.  The show to kick off this inaugural tenth season is ‘Crimes and Missed Demeanings’.  It’s premiere is this Friday, 11 January at 7:30 PM.

Inside the theatre on a frigid January evening, the theatre is warm not just from the stage lights but from the laughter of the cast.  I get the low down on this newest original sketch comedy show via three of it’s writers – Rodney Smith also Director, Barbie Angell and Chris Kingsley, who both perform, and finally Steve Jencks who adds his flavor as a performer who as at the mercy of the writing.
