...and they're pretty freakin' awesome.

I could not be prouder of this cast, this crew, and this company right now - I think we've made something really special here. 


...and on a purely personal fight choreographer note, I'm gratified to see things like, "the sword play was excellent" and "a 100 percent chance of awesome girl-on-girl broadsword fights."  I'm so invested in this violence that I haven't been able to see it with an unbiased eye - it's good to know that complete strangers think it looks good!

Next Thursday, August 28th is the Babes' fall fundraiser - Babes A Go-Go!

Your $25 will get you a free drink, free hors d'oeuvres, free Go-Go dancing by the Janes, and even a go-go dancing lesson!  

There will be auctions & raffles, and there's a cash bar and full dinner menu.

Please note - you don't have to dance if you don't want to, but it should be a ton of fun.  I hope to see you there!

Looking for something to do with your sweetie for the imminent holiday?  Looking for a way to get out your aggression over the imminent holiday?   Look no further!!   (For those who don't know, a pool noodle is a long squishy vaguely sword-like object.  Not a pool full of noodles.  That would be a WHOLE different kind of fundraiser.)
