Final two places on our Mixer Teams

Mixer Teams are a great way for a performer or student to join the festival. Each of our three world-class teachers will offer a workshop on their specific format from 11:00-16:30 on Friday or Saturday.

After happy hour and dinner, the three workshop teams will perform on one bill for a unique improv show on closing Saturday night.

The teams led by Susan Harrison and Katy Schutte are sold out. Ella Galt has just two slots on her mixer team.
