ABOUT THE SHOW

Hand2Mouth blows the whistle and pulls a red card on 2016 for being a year of fumbles, foul balls and piss poor attitudes. Get off the bench and into the theatre because H2M’s coaches are back after 3 years on tour with a leaner, meaner, road-tested PEP TALK! This homecoming show will boost team spirit, celebrate heroes, identify obstacles and ask the game-changing question: “What are you going to do?”

REVIEWS

“It’s a pep rally for people who hated pep rallies, a simultaneous goof on the trappings of team spirit and sincere acknowledgement that teams can be families, coaches can be life changing, and motivational speeches get people going for a reason.” -Portland Mercury

“Like any good spirit squad, they had me roped in from the get go for their joyous descent into that pillar of American culture: the motivational pep talk.” -Portland Monthly
