COMEDY FOR GIRLS
(and a few guys)
This comic material was developed while working with students in The Comedy Academy – an after-school program at Col. E. Brooke Lee Middle School and Northwood High School in Silver Spring Maryland. The sketches and short plays were honed as the students performed them in professional and educational venues. These venues included The Warehouse Theatre, Washington, DC., The Studio Theatre, Washington, DC, The Randolph Road Theatre, Silver Spring, MD, and at the two schools. All were offered as part of musical comedy revues presented for multiple performances between 2000 and 2012. If you have any questions or would like to review an advance copy, please contact me at email@example.com.
