TWO back-to-back original shows*, created using the Planet Ant Process. Characters initially developed and explored with the director are used to improvise relationships, plot points, scenes and bits until story begins to develop. Scenes are then written by the cast and director, rehearsed and performed as an original Planet Ant one-act comedy.

"Pretty As You Please"

Directed by Shawn Handlon 

The death of Esmeralda, a circus fortune teller, starts a series of events that transforms the broken lives of a minor league hockey mascot, a former champion long jumper and a defunct grunge folk duo. If all goes as the deceased mystic has planned, the biggest mistake of her life will be remedied and her daughter will find... (pause for dramatic effect) illumination.
