- [Hi Everyone-some of you may have already seen this in my twitter feed or
on facebook, but in case you haven't, please consider coming out to see this
show. I am doing publicity for it and am at least one of the disembodied

Friday, August 27th performance is charity night. The proceeds from the

hope to see you there! - Emma]
