Communication Arts Center 108 on the UNI campus.
This will NOT necessarily be family-friendly. Some of the material may be offensive to some people, so plan accordingly.
It’s been 10 years, and we’re going to show that we can still surprise you!
Oh, Gang, I am SO EXCITED about this upcoming show! Half-Masted will be doing Armando Diaz, a wonderful structure making its debut in the Cedar Valley with us! We’ve been practicing hard all semester, and can’t wait to show you what we can do!
We have the final guest line up:
Friday: 7:00 PM Jon Crews!
Friday: 8:30 PM Bob Kressig!
Saturday: 7:00 PM Richard Glockner!
Saturday: 8:30 PM Jason Weinberger!
Arrive a bit early to get your choice of seat!
All shows will be in CAC 108, will be free, and will not necessarily be family-friendly.
Hey, gang! The end of the year is upon us and we have some delightful shows coming up! Delightful I said, and Delightful I mean!
OCTOBER 26! 7 PM! Half Masted returns to the Lampost for a free family-friendly show! The Lampost is on Seerley and Main, and they serve beverages and treats. Have a nice supper, come and laugh, and then either put the kids to bed or go out for a romantic evening. Live theater is always a treat!
NOVEMBER 9! 7 PM! Half-Masted’s last Lampost show of 2012. New show, same location. Enjoy us amidst the falling leaves!
NOVEMBER 30! DECEMBER 1! Half-Masted returns to the Communications Arts Center on the UNI campus! We will be doing two shows a night, one at 7:00 and one at 8:30. Seating may be tight, so come early. We will be debuting some new structures that we’ve been working hard on, and it will be a very different experience than the Lampost shows.
Oh, and we will be having SPECIAL GUESTS!
Jon Crews! Mayor of Cedar Falls
Bob Kressig! State Representative!
Jason Weinberger! Artistic director and CEO of the Waterloo Symphony Orchestra!
Richard Glockner! Insanely brilliant and popular Theater Professor at UNI!
Each of the shows will include one of our guests. It is a testament to the culture of our town that these people would agree to come and be ridiculous with us.
See you soon!
These pictures were taken at our Pridefest Show. It was a lot of fun! We got to perform outside on a nice day, we were miked well so we didn’t have to shout. The audience just showered us with love – they came prepared to laugh and have a good time, and we were in an excellent comedy mood, and it all just clicked! We want to share some pics with you!
This event went wonderfully. During the middle of our set, Adam and Rashida were asked to leave and give an interview, but they insisted on staying until the end of our show. This led to Tanner playing Rashida in a sketch, while she was watching! They said kind things after we were done, and it was all splendid!
We did our first of three family-friendly shows at the lampost tonight! What a great crowd! We debuted some new structures, and it was wonderful knowing how “with us” the crowd was. We hope we perform there forever.
What fun! Half-Masted just did a wonderful show, starring Adam Scott and Rashida Jones of Parks and Recreation. We have some wonderful shows coming up – click “Upcoming Events” (or scroll this page) to see dates and times. Email me if you have any questions!
Hope to see you soon!
Are you going to the Cedar Valley Pridefest in Waterloo? If you are, make sure to visit us! The fest is August 18 in downtown Waterloo, from noon to midnight. We should be there performing for you all at about 6:15 PM. Lots of other great performers will be there, too!
Also in August, we will be at the Hearthfest on August 26 at Gateway Park in Cedar Falls at 5 PM. Lots of good music and fun will be had, and we will be helping to feed the homeless. After the show, make sure to say, “Hi!”
On September 15 we will be performing at Wine and Scarecrows at the Waterloo Arboretum. A beautiful fundraising event involving three of your favorite things – wine, scarecrows, and half-masted! This show will be at 5:30.
There will be family-friendly shows at the Lampost again! One in September, one in October, one in November. And then we will have our big end-of-semester show at UNI! Check back here to see dates when they are set, or join our mailing list! Also, follow us on facebook!
If you have any lovely thoughts about our group, now and forever, make sure to tweet them! Use the hashtag #halfmasted and they will show up on this page.
That’s all for now! I hope you all have a great summer filled with love and joy!
Dr. Doug Shaw, director.
Hey, everyone! Half-Masted is back with another amazing end-of-semester show! Battle lines are drawn and tensions run high as the troupe divides into two teams to play… Gorilla Theater! Who will lose? Who will win? Well… YOU will win, because the show is hilarious! The shows are Friday and Saturday, 7 and 9 PM at Communications Arts Center 108. Admission is free. I hope to see you all there!
(Oh, and tell your friends! And use the hashtag #halfmasted if you tweet about us!)
Due to bad weather, we had to cancel the show tonight, I’m sorry.
A duo called “Gay Straight Alliance” will be performing at the Union 8 PM this coming Thursday – they won’t be family friendly but I highly recommend them.
Half Masted will be back in February.
