Sideshow Fringe Festival Presents: NINE EXITS is a multi media adventure featuring film, puppetry and story telling.   | Saturday, August 5, 2017
This zany miscellany isn’t a history of cats (though it starts in the Stone Age) nor is it about the impact of cats on important world events (though there is a bit with Abraham Lincoln) nor is it just an excuse to watch cats die in increasingly grim ways (although maybe a little bit also that,) NINE EXITS is an assortment of fun-size stories featuring different puppetry styles and performance mediums all investigating a single subject: Capital-D Death.

Written by: Nate Eppler, Cassie Hamilton, and Mallory Kimbrell
Featuring: Rachel Agee, Cynthia Harris, Bethany Champion, Luke Hatmaker, Kristin McCalley Landiss and film work by Josh b. Carter.

Act Like a GRRRL 2017
Actors Bridge Ensemble is pleased to present the WORLD premiere of Act Like a GRRRL 2017 — original stories, dances and songs from the cusp of adulthood performed by the authors themselves: a fierce band of GRRRLS committed to living their best lives and creating a better world.  Now in its 13th year, Act Like a GRRRL is a groundbreaking autobiographical performance piece written and enacted by local teenage grrrls.  Join the 2017 cast as they share wisdom and laughter that will call you to remember your best self and pledge to reclaim her (or him).
Thursday-Saturday, June 22, 23 and 24 at 7:30 p.m.
Directed by Vali Forrister

Act Like A GRRRL NoVA in Capital Fringe Festival, Washington, DC
“Act Like a GRRRL (ALAG) is an autobiographical writing and performance program that inspires girls (ages 12-18) to write about their lives and transform their thoughts into monologues, dances and songs for public performance. As GRRRLS find their voice and speak their truths on stage, they develop the self-confidence and leadership skills to live more empowered lives. Act Like a GRRRL – NoVa takes place in Northern Virginia just outside Washington, D.C. at the Blueberry Hill Co-Housing Commons House in Vienna, VA (near WolfTrap). The final performance will be part of the D.C. Fringe Festival in July.”
