Producer /Director /Writer /Actress /Circus Artist
Native Oregonian, Lacy Todd, spent her youth attending theater camps, performing in a traveling improv group, starring in school plays and playing dress-up. As an adult, she brings her youthful enthusiasm to all she does. When approaching new projects, Lacy pulls from her myriad experiences in the performance world, including her time spent as a writer and ensemble member of The Pinup Squirrels, a New York City-based sketch group; her training and performance creation at the New England Center for Circus Arts (she studied and created acts in Physical Theater and Chinese Pole); her experience working as 2nd AD on film sets; and her background directing and stage managing circus and theater shows.
Beyond the realm of performance, Lacy studied Organic Agriculture and Permaculture at Pacific University, led backpacking and rock climbing trips for youth, worked at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) and has worked as a personal trainer, group exercise, and circus instructor.
Lacy studied long-form improv at The Upright Citizens Brigade, Storytelling at The Story Studio, Writing for TV at Gotham Writers, and video production and editing at Open Signal/Portland Public Media.
Producer /Director /Writer /Actor /Musician
Ethan Zirin-Brown aka "eZeL" is a producer, performer, composer, and musician born and bred in the fantastic gloom of the Oregon Coast. After 10 years of teaching theater, improv and then film at the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts, he decided to take a breather from youth mentoring and focus on his own comedy. When he is not writing and producing sketch comedy he may be found in his dungeon composing dancy beats for his latest electro vaudeville project, Sepiatonic. He even sometimes backs up his comedic genius diva sister, Lady Rizo in her mission to seduce the world. A degree in architectural design from the University of Oregon, a lifetime of theatrical experience and a background in music performance and production have given EZB the skills and the passion to cut new trails into the world of comedy, film and theater production.

Adam Doyle, a native of New Jersey, is grateful to have been raised by parents who supported his artistic nature. At a young age he began drumming and training in the theatre arts. As a hip-hop emcee and percussionist for various musical groups he has played over 150 shows in the Pacific Northwest. In 2009 Adam discovered a love for post modern dance. Since then he has trained and performed professionally for several dance companies and projects on the west coast. He plans on continuing his training in order to more clearly express his truth to audiences.
Perhaps his deepest and oldest passion however, is the act of making people laugh. From writing scripts for film and the stage to playing and performing, the process of facilitating laughter is his true calling.
