We’d say “taste” it, but taste doesn’t really enter into the whole swede aesthetic, now does it?
SWEDE FEST™ PALM BEACH 3, in case you haven’t noticed, is this Saturday, August 2, 2014. We’ve had some great coverage in the media, which we’ve posted to the SFPB Facebook page: the Sun-Sentinel, Boca Raton Magazine, Florida Weekly — just in the last few days. We’re telling you, it’s going to be quite the hoot.
Assuming you haven’t already rushed out and bought your tickets, we must mention that a sellout is imminent, so better get it in gear. Buy your tickets right here, right now.
So, the final roster of swedes goes like this — in no particular order, so do not assume anything about which will play in the theatre, and which will entertain you in the lobby…
Jurassic Park, Insidious, To Have & Have Not, The Big Lebowski, Specific Rim, Pulp Fiction, Swe7en, Robocop, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, Mementos, Rocky 3, Tangled, Office Space, The Goonies, Catching Fire, The Shining, Office Space, JAWS the real ending, Noah, Star Wars, Raising Arizona, The Wolf of Wall Street, Basic Instinct, Frozen, Her, Soul Plane, Spider-man, The Matrix, The Ring Sweded, Toy Story, Godzilla, How to Swede Your Dragon, Harry Potter & the Chamber of Swedes, and Percy Jackson.
Our evening’s emcees are the Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival’s improv performers Wally Lurz, Krys Parker, Trent Stephens and Zach Myers, who will “swede the swede” with their own version of the movie that started it all: Be Kind, Rewind, as well as amusing interactions with the audience (with no swears or other inappropriate references, to the relief of parents everywhere).
Swede fest™ palm beach 3, sponsored by JFK Medical Center, rolls out the red carpet at the Borland Center of Performing Arts in Midtown in Palm Beach Gardens at 5:30 PM, and the swedes start rolling at 7:00 PM.
Tickets are $8 in advance and $9 cash only at the door (if we have any tickets left).
Viva los amareurs! (that’s our nod to European-sounding stuff)
