  • Idris Goodwin (award-winning performer, playwright, author of These are the Breaks)
  • Austin Bunn (Pushcart Prize winning author, playwright, ),
  • John Kaufmann (author/performer of Starball, Johnny Lingers),

The second week (April 28-30 at 7:30 p.m. and May 1 at 2 p.m.) will feature two nationally-recognized performers.

  • Sean Christopher Lewis (Smith Prize winner, author/performer of Killadelphia), will perform his new solo show “Just Kids” which describes how his work helping troubled kids at a Kansas school forced him to deal with his own past.
  •  Leslie Ishii might be familiar to an audience from her recurring role on Lost as Laura Change, or her work on numerous other TV shows. She is an accomplished stage actress who will premiere her one-person show “I Have a Spine” which describes her search into her own family history in the post-internment camps.
