Attendance at the April 13th Theatre of Ted was 27. (Three of them were Jewish!) Small number, great acts! There were 22 Performances, a new high for the New Theatre of Ted.
Highlights from TED
Scott began the night with a serious moment talking about how he had died the night before and Walter Mathau told him to get the band back together. Scott pleaded for people to help him but the stipulation was the band had to be called Johoverkill, it was Walter’s idea.

Almost all of the acts at Ted this week were from members of the group Thee Foot Gator Players. Consisting of different members throughout the night, the main people seemed to be Enrico, Dan R. and Mike. Mike was in 8 acts that he was billed for and appeared in a few more.
Nick Lamb brought many musical instruments again to Ted this week that were used in two pieces. His first piece was a reciting of The Road Less Traveled by Frost with drums and a candle. It was very nice. His second drumming piece was another Musical Improv. He also had a rant that covered smiling and elevators and lots of stuff in between.
Dan did master pipe theatre again this week having it be a musical set list. He did a musical version of Diary of Ann Frank, a musical about bowling and combined Of mice and men and grease making a strange piece.
We had two serious monologues this week. Rico did an original monologue that kicked off the night and our Host Dan did a monologue from American History X.
Jonathan Grabb made us laugh with roadside poetry. Very funny and very original. Nice job Jon
One of my favorite moments was another first time performer. Dr. Cheese rocked the house with his Rock Block. Doing a combination of original tunes and classics, he made everyone laugh and sing.
Another new performer was Kenny Metroff who did a little security from an insecure body. I learned more about him then I every wanted to know. Nice job.
This Ted lasted about 2 hours.

This list is for anyone who was in 3 or more. If I missed someone who performed in something, or the numbers are wrong, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get it fixed. If there are any other corrections, please let me know and I will see that they are fixed.
Performance Piece(s) of the Week
There were a lot of acts this week so I had to make some decisions. So the Performances Pieces of this week will be…
A Tribute To Marion Hampton: DJ Jazz-E Jew (Scott) and his Three Fresh Disciples (Matt, Chris an Keith) Rocked the house with a Rap consisting of vocal warm-ups. There is a video recording of it so we are going to try to get it on the website.
3 Foot Gator Players with everything. They did soooooo much and it was all really good.
