No Square Theatre presents Lagunatics 2020

This year, the annual No Square Theatre parody show will spoof The Elephant in the Room (our shared pandemic experience). Wherever you live, you’ll get all the jokes because – at the risk of being trite – we’re all in this together. The show is free at on November 1 at 6 p.m. 

Lagunatics is not all about local topics this year. If it were a drinking game, participants would take a swig at every mention of These Unprecedented Times, These Uncertain Times, Our New Normal, At Home Together, and Oh crap, I forgot my mask. The song parody gems deal with such issues as TP hoarding, my-salon-is-closed hair, waiting for a vaccine, quarantine fat, home schooling, Zoom meetings, outdoor concerts, bread baking craze, delivery services, and more.
