Sounds Like Fun


One day only: A brand-new show made of old stuff!

You can celebrate A Broken Umbrella Theatre’s first seven years of creative innovation at a grassroots gala (leave the tux at home) called Made of New Haven on Sunday, May 15 at 1pm and 5:30pm. Featuring spectacle and songs from all ten original theater adventures, you can raise the roof and raise the funds for their next New Haven-inspired production. Come dine on the iconic food and beverages that the Elm City is known for at this singular event.

This new musical, directed and penned by ensemble member Jes Mack, features songs from Broken Umbrella’s productions of SEEN CHANGE!, FREEWHEELERS, iMARVEL, and more, traversing the piano scale all the way back to the ensemble’s first show, A SHORT STORY BY A TREE. A Broken Umbrella’s signature whimsy will be out in full force with a team of cast, crew, and designers revisiting and re-envisioning all ten past original works into a one-hour new theatrical adventure. 

Food sponsor SMALL KITCHEN BIG TASTE will celebrate New Haven’s iconic culinary treats, with local beers on tap from Black Hog Brewing Company and Thimble Island Brewery, and much more to get this party started. Additional support for this special event is provided by Erector Square, Creative Growth New Haven, Alderman-Dow Iron and Metal, and Tyco Printing.

A Broken Umbrella Theatre is proud to participate in the City of New Haven's Made in New Haven campaign, featuring Broken Umbrella’s work alongside the diverse products, companies, and innovators that make the Elm City a destination for ingenuity and invention.
