A message from Shannon

After such a dark, difficult time for everyone in the theatre industry, it's such a pleasure to participate in something as fun and truly funny as Shrewd Mountain Lodge! I had a blast producing and designing for Letters for Camp Shrewd, and I'm super-stoked that I get to be in this one as an actor. Huge thanks to Jenny Connell Davis, Trey Deason, and Raul Garza for writing such a hysterical and robust comedy, and to Taylor, Anne, Yesenia, Raul, Blaise, Andrea and Melinda for agreeing to work on this next iteration of Shrewd's plays-at-a-distance.
