Teachers Lounge Mafia Returns with Furious Vengance in August

It has been a fairly mild summer here in the western foothills of Maine.

Teachers Lounge members have been busy doing all sorts of stuff. Participating in intense workshops at Upright Citizens Brigade's Training Center in New York, directing children's summer theater, prepping film camps, guiding kayakers through New Hampshire wilderness, preparing for company audits. And that was just this past Thursday.

Like a coiled cobra, we've just been waiting to strike -- but without the poisonous fangs. Or a taste that mongoose find irresistible.

August brings two performance dates to mark on the calendars.

August 5th, we return to Calzolaio Pasta Company in Wilton for a full-on performance. Unlike past performances, this one will not feature the Italian buffet. The bar will be open, menus available, and as a result the show is a mere $5. Showtime is at 7:30 p.m. Seating is limited so get there early.

A week later, August 12th, TLM performs at the 2nd Annual Portland Improv Festival, being held at the Lucid Stage on Baxter Blvd. in Portland. We will be appearing alongside Boston-area groups Active Ingredients and ImprovBoston's Mainstage. Showtime is 8 p.m. Be certain to check out the PIF 2011 website for the rest of the line ups. Brilliant stuff from throughout New England.

And we're doing a bunch of other cool stuff as well: working with summer camps, running some workshops, and setting up a mighty fierce Teachers Lounge Mafia fall season. You'll forget all about us being awful quiet June and July.
