Analyse Capodiferro/ Junie B. Jones and the Untold Truth
After finally being released from her conservatorship with Barbara Park, Junie B. Jones is ready to unleash the full truth of stolen diaries, exploitation, and missing truths.
Josh Pickar/ On Life and Death 
On Life and Death is a 25-30 minute stand up performance about my life as a gay public defender representing individuals on death row. It follows my experiences of dating while representing people on death row, and representing people on death row while gay. It is a funny and heartfelt look behind the curtain of one of the institutions best hidden from the view of the American public, from the vantage point of a top with a chronic Grindr addiction.


Pat Shay/ The Soccerdad Chronicles
What has happened to my life that the most exciting thing in the world is standing on a sideline watching my kids run around kicking a ball? On the other hand, what could possibly be more exciting? This is a show about the odd ways meaningless things can become all important. Or maybe the all important things that come disguised as meaningless. It’s for soccer geeks, sports addicts, and any parent who’s ever watched their kid trying hard in a tender moment.


Aakash Kesavarapu/ insert cheesy title for a solo show 
The show will be a mix of storytelling and stand up with a through-line of how I attempted to learn how to dance in order to seem cool and somehow ended up captain of my college’s bollywood fusion dance team. As I was trying to figure out what I would want to talk about in a solo show, I realized that my experience in dance is interconnected with everything I could possibly want to talk about including race, socioeconomics, art, dating, and general life anxieties.
