Lucia Neare’s Theatrical Wonders
The Moonshine Revival Tent
This fusion of sprightly storytelling and lush choral singing was described by the Northwest Folklife Festival emcee as “O, Brother, Where Art Thou? meets the Brothers Grimm.” The ensemble’s special recipe distills unique Americana fairy tales by Bret Fetzer with the harmonious accompaniment of originally-composed choral arrangements alongside folk traditionals.
The Moonshine Revival Tent consists of Bret Fetzer, Sari Breznau, Christine Longé, Jillian Vashro, and Mike Gilson, with the occasional participation of Lara Paxton, Eric Padget, and Valerie Moseley.
Edith is an enchanting woman who dares to dream big. From sleepy suburbia to sweltering Saudi Arabia and everywhere in between, she struggles to marry her independence with her need for love. Join Edith on a dance-filled journey around the world. The two-time “Best of Fest” award-winner THE TWO-STEP features physical theater, dancing, and original music! Unfasten your seat belt, and prepare for take-off!

The Adventures of Rocketman and Beano
Holy comic books, Beano! Laugh as Maggie and Stuart fumble through this all-but-forgotten saga with song, dance, and epic mishaps. Think Lucy and Desi as Batman and Robin with a dash of Shakespeare. Can they overcome their own incompetence to pull it off? Cheer on these superheroes (super-idiots?) in their quest to avenge injustice!
