GOBSMACKED at the Waco Civic Theatre

My projects Willo and Archisms will combine into a super band to play live with Waco’s own Out on a Limb Dance Company in our original production GOBSMACKED.

I’ll be acting at music director and composer in residence for this very special collaboration and so psyched to have some of my favorite musicians playing! I’ve been working closely with OOAL’s L. Brooke Schlecte on making music for her amazing choreography. An event not to be missed!
