Hugging the Shouldertakes the audience on a wild ride through addiction, family and regret on the way to redemption. Derrick attempts to save his brother by trapping him in a van and driving non-stop through Jeremy’s symptoms of withdrawal. Keeping with our site-specific theme, Theater of Thought desires to involve the audience in a full sensory experience. A decent size audience cannot be squeezed into one van, so we have decided to trap every audience member in their own vehicle and create “drive-in theater.” The audience members will view the performance from their own cars while tuning into the audio on their car radios. Actors will be performing live with a live feed of close-ups being projected behind them. The show also involves filmed scenes and plenty of surprises, so buckle up and get ready for the ride of your life. DON'T MISS IT!
July 24, 25 & 31

How much are tickets? Tickets are $15 per person + $5 per car. (So 2 people in one car = $35)
How do I get tickets? Ready to come along for the ride? Reserve a parking spot. Send an email within 12 hours of showtime to reservations@TheaterofThought.com Be Sure to include your name, how many people are in your party, how many cars, and which night you are planning to attend. We will reply with your confirmation.
Do I have to have a reservation? We intend to save the closer parking spaces for those cars with reservations, but you are welcome to drive on up the night of the show.
Do I need a car? In theory, yes. The audio for the production will be broadcast through your car stereo. More importantly, the concept of this production involves your being confined to the automobile for a fuller experience. If you are without a car and can't convince your mobile friends to escort you, send us an email at the above address and we will assist you.
Do you take credit cards? No. Cash only at the "door."
Are there restrooms? Yes, inside the Hope Artiste Village. It is a little stroll, so get there early and take care of business before the show.
What if it's raining? The actors may get a little soggy, but, lucky for you, you never have to get out of the car. The show must and will go on.
