Dust off your giggle box and come out to the Friendswood High School Studio Theatre this weekend as Comedy Cabaret presents “Spring Follies.” This hilarious show based in the improvisational tradition of Who’s Line Is It Anyway will make you laugh until you cry.
This performance is a special one for the company and International Thespian Troupe 1084 because all profits will go to support the Lazarus House of Houston in honor of Earle Powdrell. Earle is the husband of Comedy Cabaret’s founder and Producer, Kathy Powdrell and a 5-year brain stem stroke survivor. The Lazarus House is dedicated to helping the community of Houston successfully combat and manage cachexia, or disease related muscle loss. We teach life skills to the chronically ill, adolescents and adults alike, so they may learn how to enjoy a more productive and improved quality of life. Cachexia is the devastating cycle of malnutrition and muscle wasting that accompanies numerous chronic illnesses like cancer, HIV/AIDS, lupus, muscular dystrophy, and even situations like spinal cord trauma. It robs clients of their energy, sense of well being, ability to live independently, and ultimately quality of life.
The show runs Friday, February 27 and Saturday, February 28 at 7 pm and 9 pm.
Tickets are $8 at-the-door.
Donations for the Lazarus House will also be accepted.
