The secrets crushes, the hidden grudges, the triumphs, and the horrors: with a guest reader, nostalgic tunes, and a cast of top improvisers, #DearDiaryPDX takes the writing you vowed you’d never show anyone, and turns it into an improvised show!
After five shows with five incredible guest diarists, our May show turns the spotlight on YOU, dear audience. Do you have a diary or other teen writing that you’ve held onto? Would you be willing to read a short passage to inspire some improvised hilarity from our cast? If so, choose a passage and a song that takes you back, bring your material to read from, and throw you name in the hat at the door. Three to four names will be drawn, and it could be you!
May improvisers are Kickstand CVLT house players Natalie Haddad (Show Ridiculous), Katie Kester (Show Ridiculous), Emily Shankman (Squatters Improv), Lauren Sinner (Night Cheese), Anne Zander (JUICEBOX) and special guest, Starr Ahrens (iO West, Second City)!
