Ahoy Everyone!
I'm Carmel, creative producer of Spectacle & Mirth, the haus that brings you such madness as the Teacup Cabaret, The Marvelous Mechanical Maiden, The Kettle, and the Shenandoah Fringe Festival

Here I'm combining my deep love for pulp scifi/fantasy, reading aloud, and making a Spectacle of myself.
I'll be posting videos (and audio only) of my recitations for your ears.
And, as I travel frequently, I'll sometimes post from adventuresome places and include additional photos and video in my feed along with in progress work and a peek behind the scenes!
The Pulp Raconteur videos are yours for the having. Be a patron and get extra special stuff in addition to being an awesome, good looking generous, supporter of the arts!
Creative Producer is the moniker I'm going by these days.
I'm passionate about so many things (Equity! Science fiction! Pretty hats!)
and I want to create so many things (Vaudeville shows! Podcasts! Street performance! Costumes!) and I want to work with so many people that it would be too narrow to say anything else.

A bit more about Spectacle & Mirth
Why do I create where I am? I was tired of looking elsewhere. So I'm building it here.
You don't have to live in a city to find wondrous and rare performance and spectacle. I refuse to let that be true in this age of instant connectivity and gate smashing. I want vaudeville here. So I'll make it here.

"Honey, Can you Spare a Dime" is my favorite song to perform because it works on so many levels. We all have hard times. We all have briliant memories that don't stay shiny forever. We all want to connect. The dime is literal as well as symbolic- a physical placeholder for in intangible transaction of experience.
Creating a sustainable base for artists to continue to produce is important- but I think allowing ourselves a tangible platform to validate one another is even bigger. 

Can you spare a dime? Be my patron.

Also, I will write you a personal letter. A letter containing the beauteous and wonderful things in everyday life but also the simple extravagance of a personal handwritten note. Or, perhaps, a missive hot off of my typewriter!

I can hire a crew member for the good ship Spectacle & Mirth! 
What this really means is I get an assistant to generally help with ALL THE THINGS.
