HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our fearless leader, Ward Smith! 🥳

You've seen him as a drunk cowboy, a doctor, a dad, a stand-up comedian, a husband, and every role in-between (we won't tell you which of these he is in real life). When he's not on the stage, he's behind our bar shaking drinks or at the door welcoming you to The Off-Central!

We are opening our Fall 2024 Season this August starring Ward in BLACKBIRD 🐦‍⬛

We are proud to be sponsors for Voices of Hope for Aphasia's 2024 gala, WORD PLAY! ✏️

"Voices of Hope for Aphasia is a non-profit organization that helps reconnect people living with aphasia in the Tampa Bay area and across the country, with their lives through innovative programs. We are a place where the voices of people living with aphasia are acknowledged. We work to provide the communication bridges that will help people with aphasia do the things that are most important to them, and take part in their own life."

In honor of the incredible work that VOH does, The Off-Central will be doing some of our own word play to announce our Fall 2024 season!

Over the next four days we'll be asking you to figure out what shows we're putting on starting in September of 2024 📅 with our big reveal on June 1st!

'...This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember’d;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.'
From Henry V, Act IV, Scene III

"Francine Wolf, just your average Brooklyn-born, Canadian-American, teacher-turned-Jane-of-all-trades, long-distance grandma, brings you regrettably true tales in this autobiographical jaunt. With thirty-three years of stage, screen, and commercial experience, Francine toured her previous solo improv show to festivals across the country.

Find out what Sen. John Glenn said during their serious chats about daycare policy. How did she score a date with Anderson Cooper? And...how weird is it to be a model on the Home Shopping Network?"
