Each of my solo shows contains 3-5 sections or scenes. I also have some stand-alone stories that aren't in my longer shows. I asked Elgin ba...sed artist Chris Palm to draw an illustration for each one of my stories. For the past few months I've been workshoppibg a show where I ask audience members to choose their favorite illustrations and then I tell the stories associated with those drawings. I'm super pleased to announce that this show will debut at the 4th annual Elgin Fringe Festival in September! Once a story is told I won't repeat it so each of the four performances will be completely different. This show is called "To Be Determined" because I truly don't know which three of six possible stories I will tell from show to show. This run will accompany the launch of Jk/Lol Greeting Cards. The same art used in the performances is featured in this collection of 18 cards with sometimes-sassy-sometimes-sweet text. More details to come soon!
