GOArts is short for Georgia Open Arts Month which takes place each October.
It's a collective campaign to raise awareness about arts in our area.

Last October, I took up a challenge to see 31 shows in 31 days and blog about it... in the end, I saw 41.
Sure, it was a bit tiring but it was also an amazing opportunity.

The column on the left is a linked schedule of everything I saw.
For a more logical read of this blog o'adventures, scroll down to the first entry and start reading there.

I'm not a reviewer, nor am I an art critic.
I aim to raise public awareness about the great tapestry of arts & culture in our area and inspire you to get out there and enjoy it.

"Villainous Vaudeville and Creepy Cabaret" (Prelude to Event #38)

Tonight, I am going to attend the dress rehearsal for Night of the Living Monkeys, the October installmnet of the Dancing Monkey Cabaret (DMC)Known for their Vaudevillian variety shows, DMC is a resident company of The Academy Theatre.  Here is how they describe the Dancing Monkey experience:
"Blending the best of classic American Vaudeville and Burlesque with the European Music Hall and Cabaret traditions, Dancing Monkey Cabaret creates a vibrant new experience. Each evening, a themed performance is created from an eclectic mix of acts and artists. These acts might include (among others) musicians (both classical and popular), dancers, comedians, puppeteers, magicians, impersonators, acrobats, one-act plays or scenes from plays, athletes, lecturing celebrities, clowns and short films. No other genre brings the same degree of artsy eccentricity, which provides a reason for audiences to come back again and again."
Night of the Living Monkeys will take place this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at The Academy Theatre Added Bonus: The skeletons come out of the closet to fundraise for YouthPride in Dancing Monkey Cabaret's first 'Ghoul Pride' celebration!  (Image from Dancing Monkey Cabaret website.)   Food: My left-overs from Il Mee... yes, a Korean noodle dish from last Saturday.
