ringinthenight-300x248With two weeks left in 2014, it’s time to start planning your New Year’s Eve festivities! AS220 Live Arts is partnering with Providence Comedy Group and its members the Empire Review and the Providence Improv Guild (P.I.G) for the 2nd Annual Ring in the Night. Space is limited, so buy tickets in advance! Choose the daytime option (for $15) or the nighttime option (for $25). Single show tickets may also be available on a limited basis that day.

Starting with family friendly programming at 1 PM on New Year’s Eve, the schedule includes a dance workshop, a mask-making workshop, and performances by Eric Fulford, the Manton Avenue Project, the Extraordinary Rendition Band, and Keith Munslow and Bill Harley.

At 7 PM, evening performances begin with the Providence Improv Guild and a showcase of local singer-songwriters hosted by Joanne Lurgio. But, it won’t all end there. At 8:30, Randy Bush will host his powerhouse standup show ‘LuLz! Comedy Night’ on the Live Arts Main Stage, and next door at the Live Arts Black Box, actors and improvisors will present ‘Classical Intoxication: An Evening of Drinking, Theatre, and Poor Choices.’ The celebration ends with musical comedy from AS220 mainstays the Empire Revue, followed by a dance party with the Superchief Trio!
