Grassroots Theater Self-Promotes with Cocktail Book, Troupe Girls
Berkeley's Impact Theatre, a grassroots troupe that operates out of the basement of a pizza joint, put some heads together to work out how to raise more dosh. As these things tend to go somebody said, "Hey, wanna take pictures of the company girls half-naked and get really, really drunk?"
Unlike most stories that start out with an blur of limbs, vodka and grenadine, this one ends happily ever after: with a publication called Sinfully Delicious: The Impact Theatre Cocktail Book. A step up from the calendar idea, the book features real-live troupe girls, company costumes and off-the-cuff Impact recipes (with the exception of one). It's a nice sticky way to promote "theatre that doesn't suck," Impact's long-standing motto.
