Leola is a dancer that can’t sing and a singer that can’t dance. Join us at The Black Box Theater onApril 1, 2, and 3 as Leola stumbles out of herself and right into a pile of crazy LGBT identity. Come celebrate life, celebrate you, and worship together at the altar of the first American Idol/Second Coming, Kelly Clarkson. It’s a show. It’s a sermon. It’s a Shermon.
Plus, one lucky audience member will win a gently used lipstick!

THE ALAPHABET MONOLOGUES
Created & performed by Ramon Shiloh
featuring Seattle musical guest ALPHA-MONO
3 Performances – April 15, 16 & 17
As children, we were taught the alphabet, discovered word play, sentence structure, and ultimately harsh language.
Rediscovering the alphabet in a deeper quest for knowledge, The Alphabet Monologues navigates current issues, environmental concerns, racial tensions and global risks; weaving a wonderful set-list of musical improvisation, spoken word, and visual art to this series of life lessons thru twenty-six letters.
“Travel each Letter as a lesson for your survival. But fair warning, you’re about to be schooled.”
