Ken Waldman draws on his 25 years in Alaska to produce poems, stories, and fiddle tunes to create a performance uniquely his own. A former college professor, Waldman published six full-length poetry collections, a memoir, a children's book, and released nine CDs that combine old-time Appalachian-style string-band music with original poetry. Since 1995 he’s toured full-time, performing at some of the nation’s leading universities, festivals, arts centers, and clubs.
Ann began honing her craft in 1982 when she first taught herself to juggle with lemons and limes. She auditioned for Scarborough Faire (a Texas Renaissance festival) and received a standing ovation and "Best Character" Award for her performance as King Henry's court jester. She had found her calling and has now been a full-time professional entertainer for over 25 years; often performing as many as five shows a day!

The Great American Laughing Stock Company is a nonprofit summer repertory theatre company in Steamboat Springs, whose mission is to enhance and diversify the performing arts in the Yampa Valley region.
GALSCO’s dedication to artistic excellence and the human spirit creates an environment of empowerment and self worth through the creative and transformative process of theatre. Their goal is to touch the hearts and souls of all those living in the Yampa Valley community with the life sustaining and supporting qualities of live performance. Through its commitment to the performing arts GALSCO serves to educate area youth through exposure to arts nationally and internationally. They perform valuable human service to the greater community through entertainment and cultural development.
Simply put: GALSCO does theatre outdoors, in a picnic setting, through partnerships with local performers and guest artists from the finest New Zealand conservatories, to build a spirit of community. Community means theatre that touches all ages, abilities, cultures, genres from Shakespeare to Seuss, and is indelibly printed with the values of the Yampa Valley.
Originally founded in 1971, the Company was resurrected in the summer of 2005 and has continued to produce shows each summer, as well as holding classes and workshops for local middle school and elementary aged students during the school year. Led by Stuart Handloff, a director with 38 years of theatrical experience and a Masters degree graduate of the New Zealand National Drama School.
