A breakdown of our long-term goals, and some more discreet goals for the 2019 year. Our hope is sharing these goals with the community will help keep us accountable and to give you an idea of our plan for the future. The goals are broken down into a handful of pillars which I’ll elaborate on below:
CROWDED is a new zine in town created by Ally Whitelaw, Marixa Ford, Amy Do, and Chrissy Hartzell & we want YOU to submit your talent. We want to showcase the beautiful work of people that usually don’t have the opportunity to put their art out into the world. CROWDED is about giving people a platform to reveal the different mediums they’ve always had in them, whether that be illustration, photography, print work, poetry, short story, comics, horoscopes.
For a little background: It’s A Date is a night of two-person improv from people who like each other, and have never before performed two-person improv together. These folks have asked an improv crush (i.e. someone they love to see play, or can’t get enough of being on stage with) to perform in a set with them, and that improv crush has said yes.
If you're somebody who is sick of having to hang in bars to see a good show, we're making a show outside of a traditional comedy space just for you. If you're someone struggling to stay sober, know that I'm rooting for you. If you're contemplating quitting, come see the show to get a glimpse of just how much better and weirder things can be.
