Tales From The Floordrobe
The St. John’s sketch comedy troupe, Mom’s Girls - Liz, Ally, Andie, and Stef- dive into the Floordrobe - an eclectic collection of clothes and toys on the floor of Ally’s messy room- to find bright and fun outfits and props to re-enact the story, performing various characters and inanimate objects. This is a bright comedy for young ones. Tackling themes of interest to kids, they insert representation into classical stories that don’t express a female perspective, learning some lessons, and having a whole lot of fun while they’re at it!
