In Bipolar Lite, Patty Gille brings her humorous songs to the stage in a colorful variety show format featuring puppets, masks, and slapstick performances. Accompanied by live music, Gille's original songs are whimsical, goofy, and absurdly funny. Bipolar Lite spins color and texture into a narrative that focuses on Gille as the main performer and reflects her experiences and challenges living a bipolar life.
Gille is being mentored by Lelis Brito. Bipolar Lite features music by John Banks, Brian Brugioni, Kelly Waterman, and Olli Johnson and puppeteering by Tara Fahey, Kari Rightfoot, and Amy Taylor.
Mythomania is an original story of one sweet potato digging herself out of a holea hole she dug for herself. Through costume and mask puppetry, we delve deep into the post-truth world in which we live, uncovering memory as myth and fact as fiction. Partly autobiographical, partly pseudo-science, Allison Osberg buries gems of genuineness and humor in the little (and big) lies we tell and are told.
Allison Osberg is mentored by Emily Zimmer. Mythomania includes performances by Donovan Mountain, Andrew Young and Anna Johnson, with a musical score by Jordan Olsen.
