In celebration of Synaesthesia Social founder Ted Michalowski‘s birthday, he held a private Synaesthetic Birthday Celebration at the Olde Brick Theatre in Scranton on Sunday, Feb. 8, but if you missed it, don’t feel left out – NEPA Scene has your invitation right here.

Before its premiere on Monday, Feb. 16 on local television station ECTV (check here for showtimes), Chris Balton Production & Design Group has given us the exclusive premiere of a trailer for the entire program they created that documents the night of live music, illustration, performance art, and circus acts.

This video highlights just of the unique entertainment provided that evening. Music was provided by the Improvisational All-Star Syntet (Jason Smeltzer, Doug Smith, Jamie Orfanella, Matt Scola, and Dirk Dekker) and Skeleton Equation (Luke Shefski, Adam Walker-Serrano the Penny Pincher a.k.a. Catscratch, Christine Oglesby, Chester Williams, and Cade Levinson), while The Eclectic Circus (Dani Davison, Jess Smallwood, James Bajda, Sinnaman Jesse Wilkinson, Naughty NeNé Renee, and Shakin’ Cheryl) provided crazy feats in such a tiny space. Vanity Society was the special guest, who was drawn on the birthday cake in icing by Michalowski.

Other than this special show, Synaesthesia Social is open to the public every Sunday from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. at the Olde Brick Theatre (126 W. Market St., Scranton), bringing in a new musical or theatrical guest every week for patrons to draw or simply watch, enjoy, and socialize with.
