A Good Run!

From Foster Care to Fabulous ended its run at The Improv Space this past Saturday night!

We had an incredible run! Every night had a sensational audience and ending with a standing ovation. The Ahimsa Collective has made some wonderful connections because of this show with some incredible programs who are looking out for California Foster Youth. Representatives from Children's Law Center, CASA and Fostering Imagination came to see the show and participate in talk backs in which the audience was able to ask questions about foster care and the show.

If you missed the show, don't worry! There will be another chance to see it. And if you'd like to have the show performed in your theatre or home, contact me and we'll talk.

A big thank you to all those who helped in making the run of this show so successful!

Opening Weekend

Opening weekend of From Foster Care to Fabulous rocked. We had AMAZING audiences at both performances and the show is being very well received. Standing ovations both nights!!!

Also, at tonight's show (Sunday) we had two very special guests from the Children's Law Center of Los Angeles. Two attorneys from this organization came out to see the show and then participated in a talk back with the audience and myself after the show. This is a wonderful organization that advocates for Foster Youth. Check out their website at

Another member of our audience works with an organization called CASA which stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates. This organization provides advocates for foster kids. These people are volunteers and are people from the community. You could be one of them!!! Check out their website at

This past week the show was featured as a cover story article for the UCLA newspaper, The Daily Bruin. The article is available online here!

And if you haven't seen the show and don't plan to, please change your plans! We have a Saturday night show next week and the week after at midnight and we have Sunday night show next week at 8pm which will include another talk back with representatives from the Children's Law Center.

Thanks to everyone who came to see the show!!!
