Immerse Yourself In The Arts: Time Slip Theatre Launches in Louisville
“We are so excited to be here and be a part of this vibrant and rich arts scene of Louisville,” said Board President Michael Detmer. “Time Slip is going to do amazing things – whether it be creating exciting and engaging productions or working with students after school. There are so many great things on the horizon, and we’re exceedingly grateful for the support we’ve already received.”
Time Slip Theatre's first production is "Murder Ballad", which opened on August 19th.
About Time Slip Theatre
Time Slip Theatre will enhance the cultural landscape of Louisville while increasing arts education accessibility to students. The intent is to produce extraordinary and innovative theatre experiences while also running an after-school musical theatre program for students, with a focus on scholarships for students who would not otherwise have the opportunity to attend.
Time Slip’s board of directors is comprised of Michael Detmer, Rebekkah Rechter, Andrew Newton-Schaftlein, Brandon Raglad and Remy Sisk. The announcement of the new company was made on July 22 at West Sixth NuLu to a crowd of over 60 arts-minded individuals who gathered together to celebrate this exciting launch.
The first production from Time Slip will be the musical “Murder Ballad” presented by Barry Wooley Designs, running August 19-29. “Murder Ballad” is a pulse-pounding rock opera that explores the dangerous intersections of love, lust, passion and murder. The story centers on Sara, who gave up her rock-n-roll lifestyle years ago, marrying the kindhearted Michael and, together, raising a daughter. After five years of motherhood, however, Sara's restless depression and aimlessness eventually lead her to begin a salacious affair with her volatile ex, Tom. As obsession collides with rage for all the players, "Murder Ballad" barrels toward its fiery climax.
Featuring Christina Booker, Andrew Newton-Schaftlein, Landon Sholar and Myranda Thomas, "Murder Ballad" will envelope the audience in the action as it takes place all around them in the bar setting of The Loft at the Biscuit Lounge, part of the new location of Barry Wooley Designs, at 120 S. 10th Street in Louisville.
Tickets are $22 and available at timesliptheatre.org.
Upcoming Shows from Time Slip Theatre
Following “Murder Ballad,” Time Slip will produce “The Rocky Horror Show” at PLAY Louisville in October, “Cruel Intentions: The ’90s Musical” in January and “Once” in June. Student programming is underway and planning to launch spring 2022. Season tickets are available at timesliptheatre.org.
