Solo Comedy showcase!

8:00 pm - 9:15 pm

We are thrilled to present a night of solo comedic performances from students who recently completed Wage House’s  Solo comedic Performance class lead by Jake Goldman!  Over the course of eight weeks, these students honed their performance skills and write, edited, re-wrote AND workshopped original solo comedic pieces.  The various monologues, sketches, and character pieces are equal parts moving and hilarious so buckle up!  Each student will perform their piece in its final form at this show!  Come see the fruits of their labor!
