Solo workshop with Kim Porter
Every Sunday from 6:30-9:30pm
$15 per sesson

Do you need something meaningful to do between acting gigs? Do you have a story you are itching to tell? Let award-winning writer/performer Kim Porter help you make that happen at the Solo Workshop.

This workshop is designed to help participants generate new material, support projects already in development, and offer accountability in a relaxed and generous small group environment. The Solo Workshop is designed to meet the participant where they are and is therefore ideal for both beginners and established writer-performers. Because the Solo Workshop is employing an on-going, drop-in model for participation, artists can work at their own pace and budget.

Long form full of bizarre worlds, pulsating organs, and lightly braised transitions, the Zombie Gourmet format is explores the soft, fleshy, delicious parts of improv.

Laura Ingalls
Cast: Marisol Chavez and Sara Palmer

One hailing from South Dakota and the other falling in love with Little House on the Prairie as a child, Laura Ingalls seemed a perfect fit. 

These two friends (and comedy life partners) have been performing and touring together for over 3 years. From this, their relationship has grown as well as their depth of familiarity and comfort on stage.

After several road trips, exploring new cities and performing on different stages, the two became keenly interested in creating a show that focused on singular characters and their relationship and how that could grow throughout a single show.
