* A cotillion is a formal dance, often involving white gloves, not often involving pies ...

Croquet will be played on the lawn. Punch will be served. Strolling performances by the Nomadic Theatre Co and friends and associates. Ladies are encouraged to wear hats.

There will be a Pie Beauty Contest, a Pie Walk and Competitive Pie Throwing.

Prizes will be given.

Pies! Pies! Pies!

We suggest you make your pie(s) at the event.
Supplies will be provided, but please bring whipped cream, and
other non-sharp edible pie decorations, like tiny marshmallows,
chocolate sprinkles, pudding, icing, soft berries.

Pies will be judged on beauty, flying abilities and
how they look smeared on the faces of victims.

Friendly dogs are invited and can help with clean-up.

Tickets in advance: $10 for family or $7 per individual.
Tickets available at the gate: $12 for family, $9 per individuals.
Tickets available from Nomadic and members of the board of directors

Proceeds from this event will help send Nomadic to the New York Clown
Theatre Festival in September for the east coast debut of our latest
show, "Running Into Walls." We are working towards a fundraising goal
of $5000 to make this possible, and greatly appreciate your support!
