Taste That! Comedy in the County Summer Series returns to Athol Town Hall  TONIGHT,  Saturday July 30th with special guests Ashley Comeau and Connor Thompson joining the show.








Ashley and Connor are award-winning alumni of the legendary Second City improv theatre in Toronto, and perform around the world as “The Lusty Mannequins”… We’re thrilled to welcome them to the Cherry Valley stage!

The laughs start at 8:00 pm Saturday July 30th at the Athol Rec Centre.

With a “bird friendly” (cheap cheap) bar sponsored by The County Cider Company and Barley Days Brewing, our legendary Mystery Bags of Snacks and Food Oddities, and a two-act show jam packed with unscripted (and some-scripted) hilarity…this is an event not to miss! Join us following the show for a nightcap at The County Canteen, another fine show sponsor.

But if that doesn’t convince you…

E-news subscribers can use the promo code DRAUGHT and get $3 off when you purchase your tickets to our Saturday July 30th show online! Now that’s tasty. Click here for tix!

Want to try a little Improv yourself????  Drop by at 6:30 pm for a free Improv workshop with members of the TASTE That troupe before the show at 8 pm.

Feel free to share with your friends and let them know that they’ll have a blast.
