    Over the Lege, the number one — and some might say only — political satire show focused solely on the Texas Legislature returns to the Rollins Theater at the Long Center for two weekends with Over The Lege Part 4: The House Awakens.

    Want to know what is on that secret recording between Michael Quinn Sullivan and Speaker Dennis Bonnen, well then do we have a sketch for you!

    Created and hosted by long-term Texas legislative staffer Stephanie Chiarello, Over the Lege brings together political insiders, improv actors, and comedy writers to expose the shenanigans of the Texas Legislature. Comedic legend Tom Booker directs; Denise Hudson provides musical accompaniment; Janet Maykus and Amy Lowrey lead an incredible cast of comedians.

    Over the Lege is presented in two acts. In the first, you’ll say “wait, is that really true?” while guffawing at the policies and actions from our legislature (yes, they passed a law letting you hunt feral hogs from a hot air balloon). In the second, host, Stephanie Chiarello interviews a real Texas political celebrity, and then welcomes a panel of “colleagues”--aka improvisers--to further shed light on the operations of the Texas Legislature.

    Running September 20-29th, the award-winning show brings its high-energy humor to the Rollins Theater at the Long Center for six exclusive shows.

    Guests include:

    Friday September 20 - Representative Celia Israel
    Saturday September 21 - Senator Kirk Watson
    Sunday, September 22 - TBA
    Friday, September 27 - Representative Sarah Davis
    Saturday, September 28 - Speaker Pro-Tem Joe Moody
