PLUCKY LUSH '18

In conjunction with the Friday, April 27 performance of Tab Show, Lucky Plush hosts its annual benefit bash, PLUCKY LUSH 2018. Enjoy a pre-show cocktail (6:30-7:30pm), repertoire performance (7:30pm – 9pm), and mingle with the artists in the Level 1 lobby for heavy apps and bottomless drinks (9-11pm).

Tab Show features two distinct Lucky Plush works—Rink Life and Curb Candy—that highlight the company’s signature blend of dance, theatre, and comedy. In Rink Life, the sound design playfully builds upon disparate fragments of information—partially overheard conversations, musical scales, pop-song earworms—and is generated entirely by the performers in real-time. Curb Candy accumulates passing moments from favorite Lucky Plush repertory into a dreamlike roadshow. 

During intermission, there will be an opportunity for audience members to support the company through a paddle raise in the theater, inviting audience members to contribute directly to the performers' salaries, health stipends, and designer wages.

Important info about tickets: To begin the night, please navigate to the Level 1 Lobby of Harris Theater (205 E Randolph) to visit the PLUCKY LUSH check-in table. Pick up your Tab Show ticket and PLUCKY LUSH wristband, and enjoy a pre-show drink starting at 6:30 with curtain at 7:30pm. See you there!

  • Your PLUCKY LUSH ticket purchase includes a ticket to Tab Show. There is no need to visit the Harris Theater will call; instead, Lucky Plush staff will disperse Tab Showtickets to guests in the Level 1 Lobby.

Interactive Game Nights | Raleigh, NC

Join us for a live-action game loosely inspired by the board game Clue. Drawing from Rooming House's creation process, Lucky Plush invites participants to "play" a handful of stories with potentially life-changing actions (personal or current event). This on-your-feet game will set in motion playful and profound interpretations of our own and each other's stories: Who has agency around a life-changing even (action taker, affected, witness)? Why do people behave the way they do (fear, guilt, love)?
