Fashion Forward Men is a pet project of Zack Rouse of TheVaultEureka.com. Zack curates forward thinking men's fashion for himself and any willing guinea pigs who come his way! The goal isn't to make men look like women; it's to make men look and feel GOOD! Zack has a Pinterest board and a FB page called Fashion Forward Men, dedicated to the subject. He's currently in production on a television series by the same name, which will be available on TheVaultEureka.com by the end of the year. Look out for some outrageous boldness from the FFM crew in this exciting and fun fashion show for everyone. Beware, these men may be too sexy for their work boots.
"A Trip to Cowtown" is a collage performance of song, story, and object plays, created by Tayloranne Finch and Daniel Nickerson. Cowtown itself is a storybook of alternative Americana, a patchwork of new and old visions of small town ideals played out by an unusual cast of characters and living sculptures. In this chapter, the audience will follow Peggy Pilgrim, and her truck full of tiny dancers, as she passes through Cowtown on her journey to find a better way to be. Musical saw, accordion, banjo, narration, singing, puppets, fabric collage, clowning, musical chairs and more are used by the performers to tell Peggy's story. This lighthearted fable is fit for families and people of all ages.

"Free School of Future Communion" is a performance in a series of chapters that investigates ideas of freedom and togetherness. Tasks are performed until they devolve into abstractions. Speeches are given with gentleness and fervor. Dance travels across the body and twitches on the floor until it withers into soft flowers. Special guests make special appearances. Each chapter is unique. FYI: The rhinoceros is the unofficial mascot of "The Free School of Future Communion". Rhinoceros memorabilia and facts will be available before and after the show.
A One Person Seven Character (Clown) Show. The Great Gorbolski puts on the family show he's always dreamed of. A precociously dramatic boy inspired by the circus tradition in his native country of Salami-land, Garbolski (now grown up) has enlisted his cousin Tibi and his two very different brothers Dimitri and Peter to make a show. His mother steps in to provide a touch of uninvited family history, and his step-dad who is works for Homeland Security, works security. An absurd exploration of family, intergenerational trauma, dictators and what it means to be American. Mickey Galloway studied clowning at the San Francisco Clown Conservatory, and with Phillipe Gaulier and James Donjon. His solo work has graced the stages of PianoFight, the Marsh, and The Undisclosed Location in San Francisco. He has upcoming appearances at Lunacy Festival in Ashland, and the Oakland Comedy Festival. He also plays music with the Sour Mash Hug Band and Zla Vila.
The Comix Trip is storytelling group with drawings projected on an overhead projector (not digital). All the stories are written and drawn by me. I tell the stories, while I move the drawings around on the projector to simulate animation. I have a group of four musicians who create a choreographed soundscape that goes with the story, using guitar, musical saw, accordion, and various noise-makers. The stories are for all ages, though some of the ghost stories are a little scary for young children. The group wears black and white costumes, stage make-up and wigs. We are a sort of vaudeville act with mid-century era technology. The stories draw from themes of environmental conservation, science fiction, and spooky ghost stories. Most of the drawings are inspired by the scenery of Humboldt county. The group has been performing locally since 2011

Come along on a journey with your inner child and the truth and beauty bombs of your subconscious. Who knows, you may find yourself on Venus!
In the theatrical world of the circus, there are possibilities of joy, transcendence and meaning. But there is also the possibility for the complete opposite. In this contradiction lies the magic of the circus. He juggles, he dances, he portrays multiple characters.... Calder Bullwinkle writes and performs like a man on a mission while encouraging insight, sharing philosophical musings, all the while creating humorous and often uncomfortable theatrical moments. He guides us on a 45 minute journey and to a destination we ultimately all share.
Tension, laughter, and murder take center stage in Agatha Christie’s comedy whodunnit, Spider’s Web.

Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, woman-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and a scaffold.
With your Suggestions and words we will weave together, and discover some new fairytales that might be at the root of the very challenges we face today, and uncover the possible steps towards making a better world - or just make us laugh!
The Lil' Red Variations is a new theatre piece being workshopped by NightVision Theatre and TheVaultEureka.com. This ain't your Grandma's Lil' Red. The show explores multiple new iterations of the classic fairy tale, and discusses gender roles, sexual identity and freedom, and socio-political cultural pressures as they relate to our day-to-day lives. Find your own conclusion! Does the Wolf need to conform to his typical role? Is Lil' Red all that innocent? Is the Lumberjack on the up-and-up, or up to no good? These and other questions will be addressed in a hard-hitting epic journey centered around a dangerously not-so-weak Lil' Red.
"Clownfish" is an hour of stories of trying to find your place in the world and observations about how we treat this weird divide between "man" and "woman". It's honest as all get-out, glam as Hell, as weird as America, and also happens to rhyme.
