Premiere of Rat Ruse at the Philly Fringe Festival!

Premiere Show

Hello, friends! I’m excited to tell you that I’m producing and acting in a hilarious, smart, and wonderful parody of Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap, this September, as part of the Philadelphia Fringe Festival. I know not all of you who follow my blog are in the Philly area, but if you are, I would LOVE IT if you came to the show! Click HERE for ticket info.

Rat Ruse, Part of Philly Fringe Festival: Fridays, Sept. 6th, 13th, 20th, 8PM

Also, if you don’t live in the Philly area and would like to support live theater that is accessible to all, we have started a GoFundMe page for our show. We simply hope to break even. I thank you advance for considering this, and I’m so grateful that have enjoyed reading this blog.

I’ll be posting more after this show finishes.

Until then, be vulnerable with yourself, and kind to yourself; then be vulnerable with and kind to others.
