Springer Opera House Presents Pioneering High-Wired Hijinks of “Opps…I Tweeted Again!”

 

Columbus, GA,  4.7.2014:  The Springer presents “Oops … I Tweeted Again!” the second in the most digitally connected theatrical franchise. Ever. Anywhere. Period.

“Oops … I Tweeted Again!” is an interactive comedy that explores social networking and the generation gap. As part of that exploration, audience members are encouraged to bring their cell phones, laptops or tablets to the performance and to leave them on.

As in the Springer’s 2011 original groundbreaking digital hit “I Tweeted on my iPad (and I Liked it),” the audience will decide the direction of every show.

This is a high-wired act that breaks ground where no other theatre in the world been. And when the Springer produced the earlier “Tweeted” comedy, one evening’s performance radically broke all records for digital connectivity when a patron brought a laptop to the show so her daughter, a Springer Theatre Academy graduate studying in Colorado, could watch the show through Skype. As she watched live from Colorado, she interacted with the performers and affected the direction of the performance with her Tweets.

A team of professional improve comics and writers examines the hilarious impact that posts, texts, Tweets, email and other digital forms of communications have had on our lives.

“We create a digi-giggle world on stage to examine through laughter the changes in our lives and relationships brought about by the World Wide Web. I don’t know how we would be able to do such a technologically advanced show without the generosity of Graphicom who have loaned us a bunch of laptops and iPads which are critical to the show,” said playwright, director and actor Adam Archer.

Archer performed those same roles with “I Tweeted on my iPad (and I Liked it).” A former Springer Theatre Academy teacher and actor in many Springer productions, Archer has studied and performed with Second City and iO Chicago (formerly Improv Olympic) in Chicago for the past three years.

“Oops … I Tweeted Again!” will be performed in the McClure Theatre, the Springer’s second stage, which is entered from the 1st Avenue side of the building. Performances are at 7:30 p.m., Thursdays-Saturdays on April 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, and at 2:30 p.m., Sunday, April 13.
