This ain’t your regular solo SNL 5 minutes show. We all create and perform our art a different way. Let’s see what will happen when everyone gets the same prop and starts getting real (the real world) . Each performer has around 10 minutes to do whatever they want with one prop.

This months prop is a full length mirror.

Performers:

  • Jeff Murdoch
  • Erin Thorn
  • Wes Perry
  • Greer Dworman
  • J Grant Collins
  • Molly Miller

Produced by: Katy Conroy
