Venus in Fur by David Ives
Featuring Meredith Sause & Mark Filiaci

Auditions are over for the day and Thomas still hasn’t found the perfect actress for his new play, an adaptation of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s classic erotic novel, “Venus in Furs.” Enter Vanda, an actress who seems completely wrong for the part—or is she? In this sexually-charged power play, no one is quite what they seem.

Production team: Chuck Catotti, Marcia Edmundson, Nick Johnson, Shelby Hahn, Derrick Ivey, Alex Maness, John Murphy, Kit Wienert.

Improv Percolator

Thursday, February 18th at 8pm

Awesome Team Productions presents The Improv Percolator, a showcase for local Improv students and teams.

Our upcoming show includes three local teams presenting a mix of long and short form comedy Improv.

Join us for an evening with Wild Mind Improv’s Master Class, Main Squeeze, and special guests, Danny Canoe.

Main Squeeze are six women with one word—Yelp! Using a one word suggestion, they create a whole new world based on their own thoughtful, snarky, vindictive, fun, and always illuminating fake yelp reviews.

Danny Canoe performs long form improv and features Dan Sipp, Anoo Brod and Steven Warnock sharing a love of scenes that swing wildly from silliness to social commentary.

They are full of goodbyes and hellos, endless waiting and break-neck rushing, inexorable boredom and overwhelming distractionstremendous paradoxes in sprawling boxes. In her usual eclectic and inventive way, director/choreographer Killian Manning turns her eye and her performers towards the friendly skies. Combining text, props, movement, music, and projected images, Now Boarding. . . is a work of passion, humor, introspection and connection. Come join us in a flight of fancy that will delight and disturb. Check your baggage at the door or bring it with youno extra charge.
