My Salvation has A First Name: A Wienermobile Journey
[Performance Times: Thursday, May 5, 7:30pm, Friday, May 6, 7:30pm]

Based on the true story of an insecure goody-goody who overcomes years of bullying and finds redemption and her true voice behind the windshield of the Wienermobile. Using music, video and photo footage from her life on the hot dog highway, comedian Robin Gelfenbien tells the story of her transformation from underdog to "one of the most notorious Wienermobile drivers of all time." (Time Out New York). "4 stars" (Time Out New York) "The highlight of next month's Fringe Festival" (New York Magazine) Written and performed by Robin Gelfenbien. (An excerpt from this show was part of our inaugural event, 'A WAM Welcome' )

How To Be A Lesbian in 10 Days or Less
[Performance Times: Friday, May 6, 9:00pm, Saturday, May 7, 3:30pm]

Not a coming out story, but not not a coming out story, 'How To Be A Lesbian in 10 Days or Less' is a dynamic workshop led by teacher and motivational speaker Butchy McDyke that will help you become the "best lesbian you can be!" Writer and performer Leigh Hendrix links unique characters, personal story, and a Reba McEntire song in a mostly funny and sometimes earnest exploration of how you can learn to condently shout, "IÊm a big Êol dyke!"

Performing Therapy
[Performance Times: Thursday May 5, 9:00pm, Saturday, May 7, 7:30pm, Sunday, May 8, 2:00pm)

This one-woman, group-therapy comedy about depression is a sideways safari through loss, displacement, dementia, depression and the surprise healing nature of upstate New York.  A 'depressively experienced' actress turned therapist leads group therapy in an attempt to provide helpful advice and therapeutic modalities to other 'stressfully afflicted'. Art Therapy with Balloon Animals, Affirmations on Post-it notes and Primal Humming are some of the hopeful remedies. Written by Camilla Schade and Kira Lallas, and performed by Camilla Schade.

Paris 1890-Unlaced!
[Performance Times: Saturday, May 7, 2:00pm, Saturday, May 7, 9:00pm, Sunday, May 8, 3:30pm]

Join actress Anne Undeland on a quick and saucy romp through Paris in the Belle Epoque  a glittering world of infamous courtesans, imperious grandes dames, and clueless but ambitious cancan dancers.  Costume, accent and character changes keep the pace lively as Paris 1890  Unlaced! delivers laughs, heart and, of course, a little risqué business. Paris 1890  Unlaced! was originally commissioned and produced by Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum, Lenox Massachusetts, in collaboration with Shakespeare and Company. Written by Juliane Hiam, directed by Sarah Taylor, performed by Anne Undeland.
