The 2022 Gridiron

The performance of the 2022 Northwest Arkansas Gridiron, scheduled for Oct. 7 and 8 at the Arkansas Public Theatre in Rogers, will make fun of legislators, lawyers and lowlifes — if that’s not redundant — as well as trendy topics like the Oscar for Best Actor in a Slapping Role, the Emmy for loudest Tik-Tok Impersonator and the Tony for Finest Supporting Leader, which has to go to Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

To get prepped, listen to the last year’s Old-Time Gridiron Radio Hour, er, podcast, performed live in the studios of the Sue Walk Burnett Center for Journalism and Student Media on the University of Arkansas campus. Your imagination will have to supply the costumes.
