The Artist’s Laboratory Theatre invites you back to another Sheet Fort Experience! The company will build a giant fort made out of sheets (like the one you made as a kid!) and will bring the audiences inside it to present “Show and Tell, “ a multimedia performance inspired by the classroom event of the same name from our school days. The Artist’s Laboratory Theatre wants to show you what they have found! Compiled from found sources, such as Craigslist ads, love letters and lists—the show will pay tribute to the stories of the anonymous people who left their legacy in forms both ephemeral and cyber. Whether it is in the form of an insightful to-do list on a post-it note or online personal ads, home movies or street art, the show will consist of “found” items which resonate with humor and poignancy. In addition to “found” and anonymous items, the company will present podcasts and videos they feel just have to be shared because of how cool they find them to be.

The Artist’s Laboratory Theatre is a company dedicated to storytelling through the process of experimentation. The company debuted in Fayetteville, as well as Oklahoma City, with “Bombs, Babes, and Bingo,” a play performed in random order, and was featured in the New Orleans Fringe Festival last November. “Show and Tell” is the second performance in a series of readings and performances held in a giant sheet fort.

The Artist’s Laboratory Theatre is also taking submissions for the public portion of “Show and Tell.” Do you have a really incredible story or an item you’ve held dear for years? Send your story to if you’d like to participate!
