October times...

Oh, it is! 

It is one day from October (month of month), and virgo szn (I now carry a binder full of notes, lesson plans, and calendarings) has moved into libra szn (#dreamy) and let's do it!


TONIGHT (which is technically September, I know), There's A Crack in Everything happens again! Featuring Daniel Bonespur, MJ Matheson, Danna Sheridan, and a mysterious guest. 7 p.m. Bryant Lake Bowl. Tickets here

A MASHUP! Thursday Oct. 6th, it's Rev. Matt's Monster Science VS. There's a Crack in Everything! Holy gob! Spooky songs and spooky tales, featuring the erudite Rev. Matt Kessen, the band 10 Items or Fewer, and myself, accompanied by the incredible Will Roberts on bass!! Tickets here!

Give the Drummer Some continues! Boy, we hope you like. Boy, we're having fun. Saturdays at HUGE Theater

The Unnamed Jill Bernard Project continues too, and I have missed every performance since the summer. GAHHHGH. It's the loveliest of shows, and I hope I can come play!

BRING YOUR KIDS: the Unscripted Show! A comedy show for kids and their grown ups! Bring Your Kids returns to make madness for your bored children. We have 75 minutes to make you laugh, and no script to do it! Tickets here!


 - Teaching theater class at Circus Juventas has begun!

 - Teaching at HUGE has begun, with an amazing Amplifying Voices 101!

 - Memoir class continues at Highview Hills through COMPAS!

 - Helping devise and direct a show with Partnership Resources Inc, who supports adults with mental and physical disabilities, all put together through COMPAS.  My manager is calling this a 'mega-residency': 6 weeks, four days per week, for two hours. We're one week in and there has been so much laughter. Is the world ready for a musical mystery set in a haunted diner?? LET US FIND OUT!


 - The Mayday's Genre Rollercoaster weekly online musical improv class has begun again! And I am so incredibly grateful. 

 - It's my birthday month! More on that later perhaps. 

Sending so much love!

Hove, Actually

I've been thinking of this song since leaving Hove. Dedicated to every member of the Open Your Mouth and Sing cohort, students and teachers. What a dream! 

Sunday, September 4, 2022


Oh hey. 

We are mostly un-jetlagged. I got food poisoning. I am still recovering. FOOD POISONING IS DUMB. It's been over a week, and things are still not quite right

But what about September? 


 - Friday September 30th! There's a Crack in Everything returns! Featuring music by Daniel Bonespur, storytelling by Spencer Retelle (the Other Jeannie Retelle), and myself. It should be so lovely. Bryant Lake Bowl, 7 p.m. show. 

 - Wednesdays at HUGE Theater: The Unnamed Jill Bernard Project. We take a look at kids' jokes, talk about them, and improvise off of what we discover. The group and form are full of joy. Part of HUGE Wednesdays, 8 p.m. show!

 - Saturdays at HUGE Theater: Give the Drummer Some. Josh Kaplan is a honest to goodness genius, and has gathered a dream. Josh provides the soundtrack and we provide the (mostly silent) movement. 7 p.m. show!


Oh my goodness, this has changed a lot in the last week.. HERE we go!

 - Circus Juventas theater classes start up. 

 - HUGE Theater! I'll be teaching Amplifying Voices Improv 101 - - so excited!

 - Coming back for Children's Theatre Company's Radio Drama class... 

 - As school returns, so does touring at the Bakken Museum

 - COMPAS! Facilitating Memoir classes for residents at Walker Highview Hills. 

 - COMPAS! Teaching some improv workshops at Anoka Middle School. 

 - COMPAS! Helping devise and direct a show with Partnership Resources Inc, who supports adults with mental and physical disabilities. My manager is calling this a 'mega-residency': 6 weeks, four days per week, for two hours. So incredibly curious. 

What was once a quieter looking month, has become a month of stuff. School starts up.. hoping to get more Penny and the Bandits out there... preparing for some October things. (and honestly, still processing August in so many ways.) 

All the things! Hoping things are good. <3
