In the winter of 2010 cARTel's resident clown troupe, Everybody Nose, presented Everybody Nose The Scoop, the troupe's most successful clown show yet. The show marked our first clown tour, performing in Los Angeles at the Hayworth Theater, Long Beach at The Long Beach Playhouse, and La Canada at Flintridge Prepatory School. The show consisted of an opening reception hosted by the cast of clowns with different musical guests each night (guests ranged from our biggest community pool headliners to high school bands from "new to cARTel" communities). The show centers around lovable sad-sack Mr. Gary Indiana. We followed him to the ends of the clown-earth as he tried desperately to retrieve a scoop of ice cream which rudely fell from atop his child's ice cream cone, set loose, freewheeling on it's whim. Along the way, he'll meet plenty of other clowns who may or may not have proved helpful (spoiler: mostly, not).
This show will continue to tour high schools and local theaters around Southern California throughout 2011. If you are interested in booking us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
This also marked Jack De Sena's second time acting as lead director for the troupe. De Sena has previously directed Everybody Nose Science, assistant-directed Everybody Nose: A Christmas Carol, and Everybody Nose Coffee, and directed other non-clown projects for the collective. The production also marked Colin O'Brien-Lux's first time assistant directing, Lucas Lilieholm and Steven Wilson's first time working with cARTel as Lighting Designer and Composer, and probably Leigh Zeichick's gazillonth time stage managing for cARTel. Some more notible mentions are Jordan Riggs and Alexa Teal Green's work as lead performers, Lisa Bierman's work coordinating with Flintridge Prep, and Negin Singh's work as producorial overseerer.
