Caption Contest: Smartphone Confiscation Edition

Caption this image and win a copy of ‘Prodigal Son’ by John Patrick Shanley.

Every month, American Theatre wants YOUR input. We post up a new cartoon and you, readers, are invited to write a caption to it. This month’s cartoon is above.

The winner will receive a copy of Prodigal Son by John Patrick Shanley, published by TCG Books.

Winner and finalists will be notified by e-mail.*

The March contest is now closed. Please check back on April 13th for the April contest.

*Participants cannot win two consecutive contests, but are encouraged to keep competing after that.
*In a modification to earlier Caption Contests, all entries are now privately submitted.

Below are the winner and finalists from our February contest.

“Being a seat filler at the Tony Awards isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.” —Karen Lewis


“Alright then. I have tried to resolve this seating issue reasonably but you leave me no choice. I challenge you to a duel. Honey, go grab my pie from the car.” —Trey

“Yeah, well, I’m already here.” —Dane Jerabek

“Worst Nightmare: Clown-Spreading” —Ally Carey

“Don’t even try to make me feel guilty! I get the extra seat because after being couped up in the clown car with 18 other clowns on the way to the theatre tonight, I deserve it!” —Abbey Kessman

**The entries were so entertaining that we’re breaking our own rule this month and highlighting more than two favorites. Who knew clown-captioning could be so much fun?
