Sarah and Evelyn met at a show last March where Sarah saw Evelyn perfoming the B-52’s Rock Lobster. Since then Evelyn and Sarah have formed a mutual admiration and “Let’s do it!” society. Evelyn has appeared in several HiGlass shows, and Sarah was cast as the lead when Evelyn staged an abridged version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Once More with Feeling. What magic forces drew them together? Perhaps their shared love of the rock band Heart? Regardless, both are thrilled to come together to empower fellow artists over the course of this workshop.
