Capital Fringe Festival This July!

We are stoked that we’re in the 2018 Capital Fringe Festival!

Image with venue and dates

Our play is “Painted Ladies Bosses of the Wild West.” The show is a historical fiction comedic drama.

Welcome to the tale of the unsung and unexpected lives of the women that were essential to the business growth and expansion of American Wild West. These “badly behaved,” sharp business savvy, multitalented, customer building economic powerhouses that were the saloon ladies. This interactive play brings you right into the saloon with our oh so talented saloon girls to indulge in the vices of the wild west and discover that these ladies are more than meet the eye and were waaay ahead of their time.

Time travel to 1867 costs a pretty penny, but your contribution will bring this opportunity to life at the Capital Fringe Festival in SW D.C. this July. If you’d like to support the show you can donate at –> https://www.gofundme.com/paintedladies

Keep an eye out for more info! 



This production is presented as a part of the 2018 Capital Fringe Festival, a program of the Washington, DC non-profit Capital Fringe.

Collection of Marketa’s Creative Mojo

19029223_1033388493464603_7085931169925909218_nOne of our Fearless Leaders, Marketa is always jotting down beautiful words and mini-expressions of art and inner musings, like a shot of expresso, but for creativity. So here is some of her magic.

  •   Life is like a series of lessons, with many roads to take. Never get mad when you take the wrong one because the cool thing is there is always a reason that you were on it.

  •  Peace is rare. When you have it cherish it.

  •   Theater is the perfect outlet to me. Gives people a chance to be, say, and do things that they never would. Be bold, make choices and be unapologetic.

  • What moves you? As humans is always in search of purpose. All souls are all connected by the need to move forward. You’re more than just flesh and bone. Stay inspired.
