The May 5th 50 minute comedic theater performance and post performance discussion with actor, playwright and director will headline a show that will also include a number of returning and new miquers doing 5 minute bits of PG13 stand up comedy, storytelling, funny folk music and more.

In the show’s feature, Lau Lapides Company & Coast to Coast Productions of Wellesley presents Sherborn's Kelly DuMar’s one woman comic play ENVIA! performed byAimee Rose Ranger (see photo) to demonstrate comedy in theatre. There will also be a post-performance audience discussion about this work with the playwright, director and performer.

Aimee Rose Ranger is a local Boston actress. In ENVIA she portrays an aspiring actress probing her raison d'etre by performing her quirky, spontaneous, poignant and hilarious pseudo-improvisational autobiography in theatrical scenes from her unusual life. The audience interactive performance promises a night of fun for all.

The playwright for Envia, Kelly DuMar has had award-winning plays produced around the U.S. and Canada. Most recently, three scenes from ENVIA! were produced by the New Ideas Festival, Alumnae Theatre, Toronto;
