Opening Night of Collateral Damage at the Source Festival!

What a great time we had, surrounded by friends and new acquaintances Before the play, we enjoyed a reception for donors and sponsors at Room & Board, a cool furniture store across the street. Sitting out on the fourth-floor deck, we could see the Source in the background. Thanks to Lauren for taking the photo!!


After the play, the Source had an Opening Night reception that was attended by all the actors, directors and playwrights of the six plays featured that evening. This is a great photo of Cynthia and Sarah, with two of the actresses from the play — Stephanie Svec (Joan) and Erika Grob (Madeline) — along with our director, Tyler Budde. What a talented group of people. They made the play just sing and brought all three characters to life that night.

Collateral Damage Rehearsal

Evening of rehearsals for Collateral Damage were great fun as we watched our director Tyler Budde and actors Stephanie Ivan Zizek (Ted), Stephanie Svec (Joan) and Erika Grob (Madeline). What an exciting and nerve-wracking experience.

Communication Comes in Many Forms

Cynthia: In going through my things I found some chalk that I bought for sewing (but it didn’t work). I put it downstairs in the giveaway pile, and this is what appeared a week later!






Our daily (probably weekly) musings and thoughts about creativity, collaboration and general foolishness.

What are we into? Artistry. Passion. Quirkiness. We sample the best from our friends and the rest.

What makes something poignant, funny, ironic? It’s usually a strange mix of ingredients that work together in a surprising way.
