Boring theater offers free comedy night

Local residents have been invited to a free performance of improv comedy — on the grass, under the tree near the Boring-Damascus Grange Hall.

The event begins at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 22, and the hall is located just off Highway 212 on Grange Street in downtown Boring. Artistic Director Kelly Lazenby suggests bringing a blanket and a picnic dinner, with the hope that some spectators will want to participate.

Lazenby says come and watch the Nutz-n-Boltz Theater comedy team act out skits and routines based on suggestions from the audience.
