THIS SHOW IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN.

PLUS Entertainment and Story Pirates AfterDark are proud to present: FOUND -- a benefit for the Story Pirates. Inspired by Davy Rothbart's cult classic publication FOUND Magazine, this one of a kind, multi-media musical is the true embodiment of the adage, "One man's trash is another man's treasure." Like the highly-lauded magazine and two best-selling books, FOUND is based entirely on lost and discarded notes, diaries, love letters, to-do lists, photographs -- anything that gives you a glimpse into someone else's life.

Audience members are highly encouraged to participate by bringing their own “finds” to the performance. Watch in amazement as the Story Pirates fully incorporate a brand new, never-before- seen "find" into each performance... That's right! Laugh yourself silly as these brilliant improvisers seamlessly weave real found objects, presented live by audience members, into each show!

For loyal fans of the magazine, FOUND is FOUND Magazine like you've never seen it. Featuring a full cast of actors, video segments and outrageous songs by Story Pirates resident genius Eli Bolin, the highly-acclaimed comedy troupe the Story Pirates bring FOUND to life in a show that's bigger, louder and funnier than ever before. Who stole A.J’s binder? What ever happened to that chick from Cosmetics Plus™? And why is Tommy still banned from the batting cages? Sit back and watch as the Story Pirates playfully fill in the blanks with relentless hilarity for this very special event.

• FOUND Magazine (foundmagazine.com), created in 2001 by Davy Rothbart, features an edited array of things formerly misplaced, dropped, or otherwise left behind by others. Break-up letters, birthday cards, kids' homework, shopping lists, Polaroids, ticket stubs, poetry on napkins, doodles -- anything goes. The witty and much-lauded periodical has produced eight magazines and two National best-selling books.
