BYOI – Alien Babies are not Rice

Featured Audience Members, Private Show, Show Recap No Comments »

Here we are again at Brown University for a second time this month at the STEM camp! Tonight’s cast was Jonathan, Tim, Emily, David and Myself and we had FAM’s Mia and Ty. They are both counselors at the camp, enjoy their jobs, miss home cooked meals and were recently discussing alien babies.

Our first game of Pillars found that Emily thought she ate her co-worker’s lunch, but discovered she had actually eaten samples of the experiments. Try That On for Size looking towards the sky and eating spaghetti. Two-Headed Monster discovered that wearing goggles can be difficult and painful, while in Timmy in the Well, we discovered that Tin-Tin had been bitten by a Shark, in an aquarium, in his house. The Quickest Minute gave us a rather generic Annie and Action Figures almost gave us letters to home. Then in Debate Club, the war waged on between cat and dog owners.

After a brief intermission, Remake taught us how not to make empanadas, Trolley Stop had a great raptor costume, and Centerpiece found new ways to shorten Pinocchio’s nose. Chainsaw took a Dancing Engineer at Buckingham Palace with a high heel shoe and turned it into a ballerina in a NASA lab with a sock. And finally, in Highlander, we saw all of Cinderella performed by Tim.

Thanks for having us again this year Brown!

BYOI – Semi Annual Quarterly Report

Featured Audience Members, Private Show, Show Recap No Comments »

It’s our second of three Monday night shows and this time we were at a local corporate event working with the companies H.R. department. We did a two-hour workshop followed by a show! Our FAM for the show was Elliana who is an intern, loves doing the quarterly narrative and loves her career choice. We began with Remake where we saw the “Disney” musical about the Twelve Dwarfs in the Muchkin HR Department.

Trolley Stop saw ballerinas a dancing and selfies at the right angle. Two-Headed Monster taught us that a career as a waiter can be difficult when setting up the glasses and silverware. Chainsaw had a Wellness Dude in the Galapagos Islands with a Drum become a Grave Digger in a dance hall with a baseball bat. Debate Club agreed that there should be a Semi-Annual Quarterly Report and Action Figures ALMOST got us into the Gym. Finally, one of the audience members, Kaylie won a Highlander that saved a young man from the ice pool.

Thanks so much for having us!

BYOI – Acid & Base

Featured Audience Members, Private Show, Show Recap No Comments »

It is a Monday night and BYOI is out at a STEM camp at Brown University with Myself, Emily, David, Barbara and Tim! We had an extra long show tonight with two separate FAMs, Lauren and Dan. Lauren loves to sit around and read and thinks it is strange if you trip UPstairs. Dan enjoys Parenthood, yet does not enjoy teen drama. We began the night with Pillars where the National Yarn competition created a mess of floppy dolphins and tiny monkeys. In Try That On for Size, we swam all night and showed that we were fabulous! The Two-headed Monster only liked cleaning up burgers at Burger King and Quickest Minute gave us Cinderella in just 5 seconds. Timmy in the Well had Tim guessing that Neil DeGrasse Tyson got stuck in a garbage disposal on the moon. Action Figures showed us that it is difficult to make a pizza and Debate Club asked, “If Cinderella’s shoe with perfectly… how did it fall off?”

After a brief intermission, we were back with Remake asking which came first, the egg, the chicken, or the Western Omelette. Trolley Stop gave us Robots, Can You Believe it Girls and The Mystery of the Girl on the Bench. Centerpiece had David in four different scenes and he was shook… out of a tree. Chainsaw saw a Theoretical Physicist, in Wakanda with bread become, Grand Moff Tarkin in the woods with soda. Freeze Tag taught us that no ring is big enough for an engagement and Highlander taught us that Acid, Base and rock may cause cool kids to shake violently. Finally, we sang the group out with Curtain Call.

Thanks so much for having us again! We will be back in just a few short weeks!

Featured Audience Members, Private Show, Show Recap No Comments »

It’s the first Wednesday of the month, so that means that BYOI is back in the Izzy Room at Hasbro Children’s Hospital with Jonathan, Audrey, David and our FAM, Natasha. Natasha love unicorns, Disneyworld, and talking to people.

Our first game of the night was Movie Critics, which found Audrey and David acting out “Natasha’s Emoji Spin Off”, we found that David is a natural Meh emoji and Princess Emoji Audrey doesn’t do well in space…the helmet messes up her hair. What Are You Doing found us doing yard work, petting a variety of animals, and lots of snazzy dance moves. Timmy in the Well involved Micky Mouse, losing his ears, on a roller coaster! Questions was up next, and we found out that Johnson is some kind of clown. David and Jonathan showed us their great board carrying skills during Action figures…as neither of them could find the water to actually surf! Our final game of the night was Debate Club, and Natasha and all of our friends in the Izzy Room joined us in a wonderful debate about food and being laugh-tose intolerant!

Then we had some more surprise guests join us as we were leaving, so David, Jonathan, and Audrey had an encore game and played Spelling Bee where we learned about cats, and saying good morning in other languages!

It was a great night full of much-needed laughter for everyone.

Trolley Stop saw numerous flora and fauna exploring the world of public transit. Pillars was an exciting taste of the newest Disney World roller coaster, “Catch the Panda with the Unicorn Net”. What Are You Doing feature big cat trainers, dancers, and unicorns. Sing It found our cast singing the greatest hits of Disney Princess Showdown!

BYOI – Lake Tuna

Birthday Party, Featured Audience Members, Private Show, Show Recap No Comments »

It’s Barbara, Alan, Emily and Myself out in Chepachet, RI for Gary’s 50th birthday party! Gary loves to plow snow, hit up auctions and has a great love to go out on the lake with his daughter. We began the night with a game of FAM Pillar where Gary brought fresh tuna to the lake for his daughter to catch.

Next, in Alphabet, we saw lactose intolerant mythical creatures. Then in Good Cop, Bad Cop, Barbara used the not-a-restroom on the 9th hole of a golf course with Buggs Bunny. Then in Action Figures, Alan got a scalpel in his head and my patient was heavily knocked out. Because I Said So allowed me to learn that I was adopted, Dad is in a well-built dog house and Gary’s friends know him well. Finally, we sang the night away with Curtain Call. Thanks to Gary and his friends and family for having us out!

BYOI – Tangled Up in Pandas

Featured Audience Members, Private Show, Show Recap No Comments »

It’s the first Wednesday of the month, so that means that BYOI is back in the Izzy Room at Hasbro Children’s Hospital with Jonathan, Audrey, Alan and a full house of people, including our FAM, Jazlene. Jazlene is 8, loves Tangled, swimming at the beach, and pandas.

Our first game of the night was Remake, which found Barbara, Jonathan, and Audrey remaking Tangled and featured talking animals. Sit, Stand & Lie Down saw Jonathan, Alan, and Audrey trying to stay cool at the beach. Press Conference featured Barbara as Diana Ross who invented a massive flying toaster. Catch Phrase was at a panda conservation conference and may have gotten twisted as Alan was obsessed with steaks.  Try That On For Size kept our cast busy and was an audience favorite. We closed the show with Do Run with our cast thrilled that we were able to find a word to rhyme with Jazlene!

It was a great night full of much-needed laughter for everyone.

BYOI – Austin City Limits!

It’s the first Wednesday of the month, so that means that BYOI is back in the Izzy Room at Hasbro Children’s Hospital with Jonathan, Audrey, Barbara and David. Joining them is our FAM Austin. Austin is 6 and far smarter than most of our cast.

Our first game of the night was Pillars, which found Barbara and Audrey as rollerblading velociraptors. David and Jonathan were unfortunate T-Rex’s who couldn’t lace up their rollerblades with their ridiculously short arms. Quickest Minute saw Jonathan and Audrey repeatedly slap themselves as they recreated Home Alone. Party Quirks saw David host a party with his guests, SpongeBob, woman who does jumping jacks when someone pours her a drink, and indecisive person. Alphabet proved that Audrey knows her ABC’s better than the three old people combined. Trolly Stop saw surfer dudes, old people, and many animals. We closed the show with a good old fashioned rap battle! Austin thinks that nobody won, but that the audience definitely lost!

It was a great night full of much-needed laughter for everyone.

BYOI – Underwater Meercats

Featured Audience Members, Private Show, Show Recap No Comments »
Here we are at the Izzy Room tonight with Audrey, Alan, and myself. Our Fam tonight was Dante and his grandmother Cathy. He loves giraffes and strawberry ice cream.  Cathy’s favorite book to read is the Bible and she loves monkeys. We started with Fam Sing It. A trip to the zoo led to underwater meercats and the fact that they were far happier in a water tank than in a hole in the ground. Action Figures had Alan and Audrey making and fixing shoes in a cobbler’s shop. Alan was arrested for stealing strawberry’s from a farm in Las Vegas with the help of Elmo during Good Cop/Bad Cop. All of the cast along with several volunteers took part in Questions, Only starting at a pizza shop. We closed with Try that on for size with a number of volunteers helping the cast trip the lawn among other tasks.

Featured Audience Members, Private Show, Show Recap No Comments »

BYOI is once again at the Rhode Island Theatre Conference and having a blast. We are here with Erich, Barbara, Emily, Myself and our 1001st FAM Abram from Cumberland High School. Abram likes Legally Blonde the Musical, works at Domino’s and likes toffee. We started off with Sing It at his job where fairy fluor dust in the eyes can make anyone like that pizza.

Next up was Pillars where a Mom and her son were scared the house owner might through more Sugar Daddies at them. Timmy in the Well had Morgan Freeman, slipping in the desert and Freeze Tag had witches luring kids into traps with candy. Debate Club taught us that Trunks are for bodies and that there is no flour in pizza. Finally, in Highlander, I was forced to deal with my bleach blonde hair.

Thanks once again to RITEC for having us.
