Aliee & Bettina are just like you: they are gainfully using their art degrees to work as office receptionists. They know what you're thinking: but why aren't they famous? Shouldn't at least one of them be engaged to Jason Segel by now? The answer can't be because Aliee didn't go to senior prom or Bettina had a lackluster trip to Budapest. Or can it? Aliee and Bettina invite you to ALIEE AND BETTINA'S (SORT OF) GROWN UP SLEEPOVER, where you, the audience, will engage them in a live game of Truth Or Dare. Aliee & Bettina are stuck in a place between youth and adulthood, between last night and tomorrow morning. You can help break them free.
