Carla Rossi & Pepper Pepper are GLOOP

"GLOOP’s two queens sing, smoke, and strip their way through campy cabaret hits as they pair off and ride into the decrepit sunset with their rubber chicken baby, leaving in their wake a harsh mirror held up to their audience.” – Kate Bredeson, Theatre Journal Join avant-garde drag duo Carla Rossi and Pepper Pepper for a wellness seminar gone wrong—or right?—when the mushrooms peak. Tackling wellness culture, microdosing, land acknowledgments, and featuring a lipsync on an actively-inflating airbed, GLOOP is a gauntlet of spectacularly unhinged drag from two of Portland, Oregon's most beloved grifters.

Lesbihonest

“Laura Piccinin is irresistible.”  - My Entertainment World In its formality, this is a one-hour, one-woman comedic show following Piccini’s journey of "coming outs"; relaying the unravelling and rebuilding of self-identity, alongside societal shifts towards LGBTQ+ people. In reality, it's a girl with a mic and a lifetime of stories to share. It took 35 years to live, 5 to write, and an hour to perform. If you love stand-up, this one is for you!

Little Willy

"But soft, what light through yonder window breaks? It is the East, and Esmé is the sun."   The Daisy Theatre gang is back with their irreverent hijinks as they take on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in Little Willy. Burlesque star Dolly Wiggler starts the show with an Elizabethan striptease in this riotously funny improvised mash-up of one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays. All the leading ladies of the Daisy ensemble battle for the role of Juliet, including faded diva Esme Massengill in a boozy interpretation of the lovesick ingénue.  Beloved audience favourites Schnitzel and Mrs. Edna Rural are back in supporting roles, and adding to the fun and mayhem, The Bard himself joins The Daisy Theatre cast for a twisted retelling of this timeless tale. Music by John Alcorn PLEASE NOTE: Show length ranges from 90-120 minutes, as no two performances are the same—show length varies from night to night. Music by John Alcorn
