Now we launch into summer! The full Happenstance Theater company are scattered about working on a variety of projects hither, thither and yon. We will all reunite in the fall to create the 4th Annual All-New Cabaret Macabre and to begin work on IMPOSSIBLE! A Happenstance Circus, but in the meantime check out all the places you can catch Mark and Sabrina as Pinot & Augustine and all the incredible projects that the rest of the company are involved in during this glorious summer!

WHAT THE REST OF THE COMPANY IS UP TO…
KAREN Having turned 50 recently, Karen is turning her focus towards repair — repair of a newly-acquired “child’s” Estey pump organ, that is, with the idea of using it in Impossible! A Happenstance Circus. Along with the repair and maintenance of various systems, she’ll continue working on music for Cabaret Macabre IV. Karen looks forward to a beautiful, productive Vermont summer with Hildur, Panther, and Bibi. See you all in the Fall. Thanks Happenstance Supporters!
GWEN is appearing in With Her Old Boyfriend There Were Patterns, in the On The Cusp 10-minute plays in this year’s Source Festival. Playing June 7 thru 30, information and tickets here:
She will also be performing in Faction of Fool’s hit show A Commedia Romeo and Juliet at this year’s Capital Fringe Festival. Playing July 11 through July 28, information and tickets here:
ALEX This summer is looking to be super busy for me! Sarah and I have built a brand new puppet show based on 5 songs recorded live by bluegrass legends Doc Watson and Bill Monroe, to be performed at the Black Cherry Puppet Theater in Baltimore. After that it’s straight into devising/rehearsing Cat in the Hat at Adventure Theater, where I’ll be playing the Fish every weekend through the end of September. Sarah and I are also compiling a few of our favorite puppetry pieces we’ve created to share with the students at Garfield Elementary in June. We’ll also be presented as part of the puppet slam at Strathmore around the beginning of August. It’s a very puppety summer. Besides that I’m just brainstorming new ideas for Impossible! A Happenstance Circus and Cab Mac 4, which I’m really excited to start building with everyone!
