We have a Prize Party at every Are We Delicious? show.

We've gathered a pile of prizes from local Madison businesses for our Prize Parties. Over $1,800 in all. That means we're giving away over $250 at each of our 7 performances.

All audience members are entered in the drawings, absolutely no charge and no obligation.

Feature article on the front page of the Wisconsin State Journal Weekend section

"In Tony Trout’s experience, people who are good actors also turn out to be pretty good writers. And that notion has held true in the nearly six years since Trout created “Are We Delicious?,” a Madison theater company where the actors are also the writers and they get only one week to write, rehearse and memorize their lines." -- Samara Kalk Derby, Wisconsin State Journal

Rave review for Puss in Boots by Gwendolyn Rice of the Isthmus

"With singing, dancing, battles of wits, and other clever combat onstage, plenty of prize-drawings at intermission, and the energy of sincerely talented people coursing through the theater, the entire experience is enchanting. Even more than other live theater events, it is also an amazing accomplishment." -- Gwendolyn Rice, Madison theatre critic and playwright
