"Choose Your Own Adventure” Brings Surprise Back to the Balagula Stage





The Balagula Theatre and Lonesome Girl Productions bring Lexington audiences “Adventures in Mating” by Joseph Scrimshaw, "an interactive theatre experience so unpredictable even WE don’t know how it ends! "

“Adventures in Mating” is a unique romantic comedy inspired by the ‘choose your own adventure’ novels many of us remember from our childhood. The course and outcome of each evening’s performance hangs on the whims of the audience.

In the spirit of Balagula Theatre’s highly popular “Surprise Theatre” series, audiences should expect the unexpected.  


Guaranteed never to see the same show twice, audience members cast votes throughout the evening that determine the fate of two strangers who meet on a blind date


With multiple storylines, endings, and over 40 different scenes options written for the show, (only 5 to 7 are performed each night) the fate of two ‘would be/could be’ lovers unfolds in vastly different, but equally absurd directions.

“Adventures in Mating” marks Jenny Christian’s directorial debut on the Balagula Stage, and the first collaboration with Christian’s “Lonesome Girl Productions”.
