fam·i·ly noun \ˈfam-lē, ˈfa-mə-\
The batshit people who made you who you are.

Every family has a little crazy in it—some people like to share it with others.

Come on down and join us in the first installment of a new monthly cabaret to celebrate the dysfunction that is our families. Performers from all types of performance disciplines such as storytelling, dancing, writing, music, and visual arts will be sharing their family secrets and skeletons.
Plus, if you’re brave enough, toss your name into the Family Bucket and have a chance to come up on stage and tell a 1-minute story about your family.

During each performance we’ll pass the hat to benefit a family in the artistic community who’s had an unexpected crisis. This month: The family of Tina Rowley

Hosted by Seattle storyteller Jennifer Jasper who will pull a new Jasper Family Jewel from the jewelbox to bring the show to a close.

Performers in May include the enormous talents of:

  • Tina Rowley
  • Morgan Rowe
  • Bridget Quigg
  • Jim Jewell
  • Erin Stewart
  • Kymberlee della Luce
