You probably know some of the people that work for The Company in San Francisco. There’s the IT prodigy who’s bored out of his mind, the Office Manager who can’t catch a break, the dreamer in legal who longs for a creative life, and the deep thinker who started it all. When The Company makes a controversial decision, its employees are forced to examine their morals and what it means to show up to work every day. Come see how they deal with a matter that is not all black and white, because you might discover you’re part of their team too.

Julie KatzPerformer/Writer: Julie Katz is a performer, writer, and aspiring lead singer of a non-existent band. She moved to San Francisco from New York City in 2013, and before venturing westward, she spent her time improvising in various basement theaters in New York. She was a musical improv house team member at both the Magnet Theater and The P.I.T. Also in New York, Julie co-produced a monthly comedy extravaganza with her all female sketch and improv team, Candy Slice, who had a video tweeted by the one and only Ludacris. She has conceived and performed numerous solo performances, and toured the country (and Canada!) with a sketch comedy group called Fresh Meat. She was a member of the Brooklyn Soundpainting Company, a Brooklyn based company that used Soundpainting as both a means and an end to performance. Soundpainting is the universal multidisciplinary live composing sign language for musicians, actors, dancers, and visual artists. In San Francisco, Julie teaches and performs at Endgames Improv. She has completed the advanced study improv training program at Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater and received her BFA in Drama from Tisch School of the Arts at NYU.
