Delightful! Very lucky!

The drop in workshop at HUGE with the complicated name (Take your time! Space work, reaction, and slowing down..) was delightful! People are mad geniuses, friends.

Also delightful was Chicago Avenue Project! So so much fun. Again, the joy, the support, and the mad genius.

I did a sample class at Feeney Manor/Open Circle (a residence and program under the Augustana umbrella) about memoir writing. I'll be teaching a eight week class starting in May (followed by eight weeks of playwriting and eight weeks of devising.) Woo! Also, my eighth month old had much to say during this sample class.

This Saturday April 28th, please come to Drag Story Hour at Pillsbury House + Theatre, 10:30 a.m.. We had rehearsal Tuesday: we have choreography! And so much silly. :) 

As always, please check out Show X, Mondays at 8 p.m. at HUGE. We'd love it if you would. :)

Updates upon updates!

Hi friends! Whelp. That sped by. 

I was lucky enough to be a part of Family Dinner at HUGE Theater (winter 2016 & 2017). The Star Tribune even reviewed us!

That's baby Leo getting a shout out as a prop. ;)

I also was a part of Party Riot, a new femme-identifying/gender queer performance also at HUGE. 

I was part of the movement group, which meant that we looked like this, sometimes.. 

Or this. 

An amazing group of people to play with! 

And I also got to continue with Show X, which is more fun than fun. It's this fun.  

And then this fun... 

Which sometimes becomes this fun... (so very lucky). 

So, very lucky to be doing a lot of this, and making a lot of faces, these last couple of years.

Because that was the last time I updated this site! (good god.)

Still an Artist in Residence at Pillsbury House + Theatre, still a teaching artist at Children's Theatre Company, still a teaching artist at Park Square Theater, still teaching a little for Improv Parenting, still coaching on the side. Very lucky!

I now can update with what's coming? Right? Maybe? 

Hoping things are good. Onward.

This Saturday! Adorable in Off Book at HUGE!

That's my favorite image for Off Book. Ever.

Butch and I get to Adorable in the strangest way possible, as I'll be the scripted actor and he gets to improvise off of that. So lucky and such good stuff.

8 p.m., Off Book, HUGE Theater, this Saturday Jan. 11th. $10 gets you in all night. :)

December into THE FUTURE

Hi friends! December decided to be only three weeks long. At least that's how it's felt. Right now, on the 24th, it sort of feels like some December-ish limbo, waiting for the beginning of the school year. Onward!

December closes... 

Family Dinner finishes up! Last performance this Saturday Dec. 28th, 8 p.m., HUGE Theater. This run has actually been the most selling-out-i-est of all shows for HUGE! YEAAA!! Please join us if you can!

(This is a still from last weekend's performance. The small person on the left is Oscar, in his stage debut as "Lance". Nice work, kiddo!)

I was lucky enough to join some of the T2P2 crew at the Bryant-Lake Bowl as a guest villain for their "An Unscripted Minnesota Holiday". OHHHHH, it was so much fun. Mambo with Josh Will fun.

Dr. Rocket finished up it's run at HUGE Wednesdays, and it was delightful. Thank you to all of Dr. Rocket for the weird, organic gooey goodness.

What's coming up?
Oh January. What will you be?

Off Book returns Saturdays in January, 8 p.m. at HUGE Theater! One actor with a script and one improviser with no clue makes for general hilarity.

I'll also be a part of "GA Great and Happy People: The Words of Civil Rights" at the Bryant-Lake Bowl, Monday Jan. 20th at 7 p.m. What is this? In their own words, "these are some of the speeches, letters, court opinions and essays from the Revolution to the Clinton Administration that are worth remembering—and rediscovering". I'm thrilled to be a part of this production. :)

And that's my story. I've teaching an awesome group of folks at the Brave New Workshop Student Union until January, and will continue to be an artist in residence at Pillsbury House + Theater until the end of March. So lucky. Stay Warm!

What is and what's about to..

Hi friends! How do you keep a blog updated? When things feel overwhelming, you don't.. You just sort of blankly stare at your computer OR watch the Hobbit trailer about 16 times. Because that makes sense.

The Twin Cities Horror Festival is wrapping up! The  Four Humors show "The Murderer Did It" has two more performances! "An expert mix of humor and horror"! Four Humors are "relentless purveyors of well-made comedy" "Clowning slathered"! "Spiky"! (I'm rather proud of that one.) :)

Friday, November 8th, 5:30 p.m.
Saturday, November 9th, 7 p.m.
At the Southern Theater, as part of the Twin Cities Horror Festival.

Family Dinner! I'm giddy about this show. If you're being fancy, you can say things like "realistic, emotionally grounded improv". Or, in other terms, delightful beautiful awkward. Saturdays, 8 p.m. through December, HUGE Theater.

HUGE WEDNESDAYS! Dr. Rocket returns! Who's Dr. Rocket? Very long story, but expect weird gooey organic play. And silly. Very silly. 8 p.m., Wednesdays through December, HUGE Theater.

The Theater of Public Policy keeps doing it's amazing thing. It's great. And this coming Monday, RT Rybak takes the stage to talk with our beautiful Tane Danger. 6:30 p.m., Monday November 11th, HUGE Theater.

Chicago Avenue Project! It's coming!! So excited! Kid playwrights and professional theater makers come together and make beautiful hilarious things happen. And it's FREE! Monday November 18th at 7 p.m., Tuesday November 19th at 4 p.m. & 7 p.m.. Pillsbury House Theater. 

I got to be a part of the Walker Art Center's First Free Saturdays. It was a ridiculous amount of fun.
I also just started as an artist in residence over at Pillsbury House. Still getting my bearing, but very excited to be there!

Spike-ily yours.
