Last day, Capricorn 15s, year of the city, 2274, in a galaxy far, far away… hapless Trelena 12 obsesses about uninterested drug smuggling hunk, Starbuck 6. Her foolish attention is lost on him as he has his eyes on Trelena 12’s BFF, Tatiana 8.

Just as Starbuck 6 leaves on a secret mission, mechanical evildoer, Mr. Roboto and his fembot cohorts, R2FU and C3PU, seek the unloved heart and innocence of Trelena 12 for power and galactic domination. Trelena 12 must dodge nefarious attacks while seeking wisdom from Exstacia the Enchanter and Empress Aviara.

But what kinds of trouble await Trelena 12 on the disco planet of Carillon? Will she be sent to Booty Jail or fed to the daggets for being a socialator? And who is behind a deadly attack of meteor showers?

Destroy your life crystal, prepare to energize but beware of mouth sores in – “STAR WHOREZ”!

A portion of proceeds from this event benefit InLiquid.org, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to creating opportunities and exposure for visual artists.

The New Dumpsta Players Show Wednesday NIght!

The Dumpsta Players Present “Honey Poo Poo’s Chic-Fill-A Fashion Show”

The Date: Wednesday, February 20, 2013
The Time: Doors open at 10 PM, show time is 11 PM sharp!
The Place: Bob and Barbara’s, 1509 South Street, Philadelphia PA

HONEY POO POOS HER SKETTI! KIM KATRASHIAN VS. MISS PHILIPPINES! MISS KOSOVO VS. MISS TEEN FLORIDA!

Honey Poo Poo is all the rage at “A List”-ing baby discos from Trenton to Chattanooga! With her new found fame comes merchandising opportunities, meet and greets at Walmart, and a list of temptations no little girl should ever read.

Kim Katrashian is throwing her annual Spring Fashion Show benefiting Sick Babies and Puppies Without Borders and contemplating names for her own debut of celebrity spawn.

When Miss Philippines and her agent Max Wisenheimer are added to the entertainment lineup for the Fashion Show, it’s anyone’s guess who will hoard the most attention and make a splash in the headlines!

But what do Mama Poon and Miss Teen Florida have up their sleeves? And what’s Lance Armstrong doing in the wings? Beware! Miss Kosovo and her scheming mother have some rather dark ideas of how they might steal the spotlight and no one is safe during The Fashion Show!

Throw down the gauntlet, gulp your skinny latte, but don’t miss – – – “HONEY POO POO’S CHIC-FILL-A FASHION SHOW”!

A portion of the proceeds from “Honey Poo Poo’s Chic-Fill-A Fashion Show” will benefit The Attic Youth Center!

DJ K-Tell Presents – Get the Hook!

Join DJ K-Tell, with random performances from The Dumpsta Players, this coming Wednesday for “GET THE HOOK!”

During the 1930s Vaudeville era, “Get the hook!” was a cry from the audience to get a bad performer off the stage. Someone in the wings would get a hooked pole and hook the performer away.

Start 2013 as The Dumpstas celebrate the losers who fail to deliver a performance loved by all!

Show us your individuality and take home a PRIZE!!!

Dress as History’s famous losers! Tonya Harding, Walter Mondale, Clay Aiken, Mimi Imfurst, Susan Lucci, and the Oscar loser, “The Color Purple”!

The Date: January 16, 2013
The Time: 9:00 PM EST
The Place: Bob and Barbara’s, 1509 South Street, Philadelphia PA

Let’s get crazzzzy – it’s January 😉

Up from the depths of the bedraggled decade of The 80s come dagloo ditties of the Holiday Season! Lost between pastels and swatches of gaudy glare, Pia Zahora throws down her exhaustive almost hits! Yoko Ono wipes out while walking on thin ice and Aldo Nova rocks the Kitschmas metal! Debbie Getsome takes us on a slipshod Sleigh Ride, and Amanda Playwithe shoots us with her sexxxy mess! But what happens when chintzy non-chums Frosty Jacks and Hot Tamale make a play for Pia? And what advice does Father Queeno Santucci have for the Hypercolor dressed set?

Crank up your boombox, cut your hair into a mullet but don’t miss the tawdry conclusion of… “TACKY 80S KITSCHMAS SHOWDOWN”!

A portion of the proceeds from the performance of “Tacky 80s Kitschmas Showdown” will go to MANNA.

The Dumpsta Players Present… Bitchy Beach Burnout

Hey, ya’ll! If you haven’t made it to the beach yet this summer, never fear! Bob and Barbara’s has agreed to make this Wednesday night, July 18th, an All Night Beach Themed Party so please dress accordingly 😉 Drink specials all night long for the hottest bathing suits!!!

LOLA LAURENT VS. SWEETIE, DRIPSTERS GET SAND AND CRABS IN SWIMSUITS!

Bitchy Beach is home to dozens of misfit, jobless hipsters living at their parents’ homes and pretending they’re still nineteen. Surfing, shopping and skanking are all totally rad and a sneaky shag with your best friend’s guy is a favorite past time.

Buff surfer, Dex Devon and his surfing fraternity, Big Stick Club, rule the waves and snag chicks on a nightly basis. Dex’s steady, Lola Laurent, has a chip on her shoulder and Daddy’s credit card, but knows little of Dex’s secret sex life. Enter Sweetie, new girl in town and from the wrong side of the surf.

What happens when Dex gets drunk and asks Sweetie to get kinky? What will the other girls do when they find out about this tryst? And what really ever happened to Desdemona on Crab Cove Trail?!?

Go topless, show off your bikini, but watch out for jellyfish in – “BITCHY BEACH BURNOUT!”

Wednesday, July 18th 10:00 PM doors, 11:00 PM showtime! $1.99 cover 21+ @ Bob & Barbara’s 1509 South Street Philadelphia, PA 19146 Info: (215) 545-4511 www.dumpstaplayers.orgwww.youtube.com/dumpstaplayers
