Sassical Classical

There are those who think only the Great Masters of the past have claim on all things classical.



There are those who think money and power can give you class...


There are even those who exemplify CLASS when the rest of us merely slog around hoping no one will notice...
But you can fool them all and go see what REAL Class is all about by soaking up some sick tunes from the Badass Ladies at Angelo's on the 16th. Revel in the sounds, enjoy the company and the food is good too. So eat drink and Stay Classy

Make reservations, 541-279-0372 this ain't no Honky-Tonk, Red-Neck, Mud Wrassel, you gotta wear shoes too!

Get Ripped and Rock Out




PRESENTING THE GREATEST SPACE COMEDY EVER PRODUCED IN A COFFEEHOUSE
DASH RIPROCK AND THE TENTACLES OF DOOM

“ON THE NEXT ORGASMICALLY RIPTASTIC EPISODE OF THE ADVENTURES OF DASH RIPROCK, OUR HERO AND TITLE CHARACTER TAKES ON A MALICIOUS MECHANIZED MANUALLY OPERATED AND MONOGAMOUS MONSTER OCTOPUS…MASTERFULLY. WITH THE HELP OF HIS SIDEKICK JOHN CORNWALLOW, DASH RIPROCK BOLDLY AND BEAUTIFULLY CLASHES WITH PIRATES, AQUA NINJAS, AND BEARDED BILLIONAIRES. WILL DASH SURVIVE? WILL HE SAVE THE SULTRY SAFFRON SILKWOOD? WILL OUR WORLD BE CHANGED FOREVER? OR WILL THE DOOMSDAY BELL CHIME THE MELODY OF ARMAGEDDON, AS THE FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE GLIDE GRACEFULLY ON FLAMING PEGASI CLUTCHING COWERING SOULS BEFORE FALLING INTO A DAMNED PIT OF DESPAIR FOR ALL ETERNITY? BE THERE AND WITNESS DASH RIPROCK AND THE TENTACLES OF DOOM.”

So It Goes Coffeehouse - those cosmic purveyors of great coffee, killer bakery, used books, bad poetry and absurdist theatrics - proudly presents the premiere of stage comedy and space adventure DASH RIPROCK AND THE TENTACLES OF DOOM. Written by Mark Andrew Wilson, DASH RIPROCK plays from December 8th to the 17th, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 7pm. Performances take place at the Coffeehouse at 190 Central Ave, Coos Bay, Oregon.

The production is directed by John Beane, director of Coos Bay Shakespeare in the Park’s HENRY V and writer/director of PULP SHAKESPEARE at So It Goes last year. It is co-directed by Daneal Doerr (the actual talent).

The show stars So It Goes stalwarts Maxwell Freeman as supreme sidekick John Cornwallow, and thunder god Joe Allen as domineering lawsuit-waiting-to-happen Lupus Starkweather. We are incredibly proud to introduce the fantastical Morgan Woods as space agent Dash Riprock, the all-encompassing Michelle Finger as the sultry Saffron Silkwood, and the hygienically sound Davien Carter as Rusty Bottoms, Pirate Lord. Completing the pantheon of awesome are Coos Baynian theatrical demigorgon Taylor Marchant as villainmeister/baritone Dorn Grizzlebeard, interdimensional tiara goddess Bex Schwartz as marine biologist Dr. Yessenia Julianna La-Canfora De-La-Rosa Medina Gonzalez-Jones, and Taylor’s sister Marissa Marchant, who hates him and is funnier than this show, as the Narrator.

Tickets are $15 and  can be purchased online at soitgoescoffee.com, at the So It Goes facebook, or in person at So It Goes Coffeehouse, 190 Central Ave, Coos Bay Oregon. Performances are December 8th to the 17th, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 7pm. 541-808-9333.


More information available upon request.
