Novelty Act

Sara Bynoe and Riel Hahn are back with another night of comedy, storytelling, music and joy!

Whatever happens, you know it will be warm and funny and a lipstick of a good time show party. Plus half price cocktails, so how can you go wrong?

Bynoe and Hahn can’t wait.

Generals: Audition Pieces We Wish We Could Do

Here’s the concept:
Actors usually go through a process with a theatre company called “general auditions” where they present one or two contrasting monologues for a director or two. Finding audition pieces sucks. Over the years I’ve come across texts that I wished I could do for an audition but never had the guts to until now.

Maybe people will perform a monologue from insane YouTube comments, maybe they’ll share a tirade from a reality TV show, perhaps someone will perform a monologue from the movie Troll 2. Who knows what will happen?!

Come out for a ridiculous night of acting, comedy, and theatre.

WHAT? You don’t have time to catch all these shows? Just check out Novelty Act on Tuesday. I’ll probably preview my monologues and Xmas story on that show. Win – Win – Win!

The Flame

Storytelling is so hot right now. The Moth. Risk. This American Life. Rain City Chronicles. Telling Tales. The Flame.

I’m going to be telling my famous* Christmas story at this show on the first of December. You should be there. I might make you cry. At the very least I hope to inspire you to buy me a drink afterward.

*By famous I mean my BFF’s family talks about this story every year. It’s practically a tradition in their home.

Rain City Chronicles

Next Friday September 24 I’m going to be telling a story with the theme of “Surprise” at Rain City Chronicles.

Part lo-fi community event, part voyeuristic encounter, the Rain City Chronicles is a seasonal storytelling showcase for short and true tales on a changing theme, complete with home-baked snacks and music. Come laugh, listen and be entertained by the most interesting strangers you haven’t met. Yet. http://raincitychronicles.com Tickets HERE

Live Storytelling events are busting all over this city. The Courier just wrote an article about it and mentioned me.

I’m so thrilled to be part of this show. And check out this incredible lineup!
