Dane County CASA's "Stand Up And Sing! For Kids"

Dane County CASA presents “2015 Stand Up – and sing -- For Kids” featuring Madison’s
own legendary live karaoke band, the Gomers, hosting Rockstar Gomeroke, with local
celebrity and audience performances. Stand Up – and sing – For Kids will take place on
Thursday, April 24th at the High Noon Saloon in Madison, WI.

Stand Up – and sing -- for Kids will feature two sets of “Rockstar Gomeroke” hosted by
the Gomers. The first set will include local celebrity singing performances by:

Former Mayor Dave Cieslewicz
Wisconsin’s own disco superstars, V05
Our Lives Magazine Editor Emily Mills

And more!

The second set will be for audience participant singers, who will be able to put their
name in a raffle for the chance to sing with the Gomers.

What makes this evening of top-notch entertainment more special is the fact that all
proceeds from the event will be used by CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) to
benefit abused and neglected children in our community. CASA provides individualized
support to children under the protection of the Dane County court system. CASA’s
volunteer advocates work to achieve safety, permanency and well-being for these kids by
advocating for their best interests in the courts and community.

Doors for the event will open at 6pm with entertainment beginning at 6:30pm. In addition to
the show, and included in the ticket price, the event will also feature a silent auction, and a
decadent dessert buffet featuring items and treats donated from local and regional
businesses. Glass Nickel Pizza will be available for sale at the event.

Atlas Improv Co.

Atlas Improv was founded in early 2004 by Mary Parmentier and Bryan Judkins. Their dream was to explore and innovate beyond what was familiar.

Our story goes back further than just a few years though. In the mid 1980s, Dick Chudnow, founder of ComedySportz, brought his brand of competitive improv comedy to Madison, and a figurative seed was figuratively planted.

As ComedySportz - Madison, we performed mainly short-form, a type of improvisational theatre where a show is segmented into five-to-ten-minute scenes and games. We loved what we were doing, and, during that time, we developed one of the show formats that we still perform today. It's as engaging for audiences and performers as ever. Each show is fresh and fun.

As managers, Parmentier and Judkins sought a creative environment that challenged and fulfilled us artistically. They knew that we were capable of more and wanted to push us to new heights. They realized short-form wasn't enough. In 2004, they started Atlas Improv. The active members of ComedySportz - Madison followed Parmentier and Judkins to do something new and amazing.

Today, Atlas Improv fosters an expert in each of its players. In story arc, character building, or pure wit, every performer is a master.
