About The Picnic Theatre Company:
Since 2010, The Picnic Theatre Company, comprised of Washington professionals by day and thespians by night, has performed cocktail garden party theatre for charity throughout the D.C. area. Past sold-out performances include Moliere’s The Hypochondriac, Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband, Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s The Rivals, An Evening With Anton Chekhov, An Evening With Edgar Allan Poe, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Hound of the Baskervilles, H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds, Joseph Kesselring’s Arsenic and Old Lace, Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps, Langdon Mitchell’s The New York Idea, Lux Radio’s Casablanca, and An Evening in the Twilight Zone. Picnic Theatre Company has been called “one of the culture party hybrids taking Washington by storm” by the Washington Post, and “a quick hit of classic theater” by the Washington City Paper.


In 2008, I launched AskMissA.com which grew from my personal blog into a site with 700 writers, covering the intersection of charity & lifestyle in 20 U.S. cities. With Charity + Life, I am going back to a personal blog where I can share my favorite things, and continue to shine a light on nonprofits, and cause marketing campaigns to inspire others to give as they live.
