Charles Phoenix Joins Captured Aural Phantasy Theater for a Saturday Morning Cartoon Show
Captured Aural Phantasy Theater (CAPTLA)—an LA-based theater troupe that recreates mid-20th century comic books with touches of old-time-y radio shows and Vaudeville—adds Saturday morning TV to its repertoire during a two-night run at the Bootleg Theater this weekend.
They're taking on segments from the golden years of Saturday morning TV (1970-1988) with live performances of vintage cartoons, ads, PSA’s, music and more surprises. Think everything from Super Friends to Schoolhouse Rock.
Joining the CAPTLA crew on Friday night is local author, chef, humorist and pop-culture historian Charles Phoenix. The king of kitsch and slideshows discusses an important part of Saturday mornings: cereal. The surf band, The Nobel Gasses, provides live music on both nights.
Cereal will be provided for attendees, but the Bootleg has a great selection of beer and wine for those who want to relive their childhoods with adult beverages. VIP seating will be given to those who come dresses in their PJs. (They get an extra bowl of cereal, too.)
The Saturday Morning Cartoons Live Show! at the Bootleg Theater, Sept. 14-15, at 7:30 pm. Tickets: $10 or $15 for VIP seating in front and on the floor (prime time TV watching) just like watching TV.
