Avalanche Theatre aims to create and share an intimate, communal experience that encourages introspection, discussion, and catharsis.
We push ourselves to blur the boundaries between audience and performer through creating a safe space that encourages emotional and artistic risk.
Avalanche Theatre envisions a space where artists can make art, learn, grow, even heal, while receiving the emotional and financial encouragement they need.
Keegan Cassady does a lot of things. Imagine an exploded brain of theatrical things and then place that on a resume, and you’ve kind of got it. Fight, video, teach, coach, direct, produce, market, budget, act, set design, electricianize, technical direct. Keegan believes in making great theatre wherever he can. He is stoked to be a part of something as inevitable as Avalanche Theatre Company. Rumble rumble.
Elizabeth Hansen has a constant battle raging inside her head about whether or not theatre is worth it. Then she gets sad, consequently laughing at herself.
Silly brain. Theatre is worth everything.
The usually grandiloquent Jon Jon Johnson can find little to say. Since he fell in love with theatre, he hasn’t been able to escape. Not that he’s been trying particularly hard to do so, of course.
Sometimes, when the weather is just right, he can be found playing violin for some pocket change. You should totally throw him a dollar or two. He might smile at you, or speak to you in a funny accent because it amuses him.
Jon Jon’s primary interests are theatre, music and gin. His primary dislikes are idiots (himself excluded), ignorance, intolerance and various other words that begin with “I”
