Saturday, September 13, we had the last performance of the O Best Beloved 2014 tour at Adam Sussman’s Parker Street Odditorium — and it was fantastic!
Mr Sussman sent this dispatch to Facebook after the show:
Much to the surprise and delectation of all assembled, at the end of the show, two galant strangers stood up to announce that the production had been awarded an Awesome Foundation AWESOME GRANT for $1000 and presented directors Joan Howard and Rebecca Longworth with the prize in LED lit suitcase complete with branded sunglasses! — with Joan Howard andRebecca Longworth.
And indeed! Board members of the San Francisco Awesome Foundation surprised us with a glowing briefcase full of dollars after the show! We’re proud, elated, and really really grateful to be awesome.
Joan and Rebecca had to don shades to take in the awesomeness of the Awesome Foundation’s generous grant!
Wow, it’s like a magic box! That is so cool!

Samuel Peaches’ Peripatetic Players had two spectacular shows this weekend, full of sunshine and lively audiences! The players told tales of the High and Far-Off Times to over 200 people this weekend from Precita Park to Pleasanton.
Join us next weekend for an extra-special performance in Port Costa on Saturday, with lunches available from the Bull Valley Roadhouse, or Sunday in Noe Valley at the “Noe Valley Town Square.”
That show was awesome!

We had a great preview performance at Cayuga Park last Sunday, with lots of kids in attendance and even a runaway kickball that was batted back into play by Samuel Peaches.
