Cambiare Productions is Travis Bedard, Will Hollis Snider and Amanda Gass. 

Teaming together for the last five years to bring a variety of projects to life including Elektra, Intermission, The Nina Variations, and Orestes, while also serving as Austin facilitators for World Theatre Day.

Back from a break (wherein Will opened his own photography business, Travis dug into social media with both hands and Amanda went and got a 37th degree (this time in math)) Cambiare is trying Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed Something Blue.

Something Old: We're back with the Greeks...
We will have our revenge on Euripides

Something New: This is Will's very first full length show (that isn't an adaptation).

Something Borrowed: Will has two cups full of references to and lines from classics jammed into this one text... . 

Something Blue: is of course the theatre where we're performing it here in Austin

The STORY?
Messenger No. 4 longs for something grander than message delivery, so one day he takes it upon himself to SHOW and not TELL. While fiddling with messenger speeches leads to streamlined plot points and dynamic scenes, it also unfortunately leads to the accidental erasure of history's greatest plays and --quite possibly--reality itself. Complete with sword fights, alternate universes, and an epic dance break, Messenger No. 4 is a high energy tour of love, fate and the Western Cannon.

Messenger No. 4 is propelled by an award-winning ensemble portraying over 50 characters from the Greek classics and Shakespeare’s masterpieces featuring Jessica Allen, Karina Dominguez, Camille Latour, Vanessa Marroquin, Joey Melcher, Megan Minto, Daniel Sawtelle, Philip Olson, Elena Weinberg, Rachel Wiese and Andrew Rodgers in the title role.

    Amanda will make you a half dozen of her stunning custom single serve cakes (we'll contact you with options) and we will personally deliver them to your house. (probably with some milk, definitely with our deepest thanks)

    We can't deliver outside 50 miles... shipping custom single serve cake is very very difficult.

    Hey Travis, why don't you get some skin in the game?
    HA HA
    Why don't you sell your body?!

    Okay.

    For as many as sign up, I will tattoo your name in a lil heart on my calf.
    The heart will be no smaller than two inches wide, and will be large enough for your name to be visible.

    Will will shoot the process and you will receive photos and heck if we can get some video we'll post that too.

    ETA: Group buy-in is fine (I encourage community) you just have to decide on one name... and it doesn't have to be YOUR name.
