The Hype features Byron and Joses Martin from the Grindstone Comedy Theatre & Bistro.

The Grindstone is an intimate 90 seat theatre and licensed restaurant all in one location. The venue is home to over thirty local independent artists/producers with fourteen shows per week which run nightly from Tuesday to Sunday. 

Founder and Artistic Director Byron Martin established Grindstone as a non-profit in 2011. The non-profit operates through its venue, and is well known for their improvised musical, The 11 O’clock Number!. In addition, they host all types of theatre related entertainment and workshops for developing talent within the community. 

The theatre hosts main stage plays and musicals alongside public-run classes, workshops, and school plays. They also have regular free monthly events such as The Open Improv Jam that helps budding comedians test their acts on real audiences.

They believe that theatre can change lives for the better; for those who participate in the performing arts, for audiences, and for the community. Join them in making our community a better place through the arts.
