2012 Hola Festival - Frank Murphy and Krisha Newport 2012 Hola Festival - Sweet Fanny Adams cast members: Krisha Newport, Laurence Evans, Chris MacPherson Krisha Newport’s Facebook status on Saturday morning indicated that she was headed to the Hola Festival. I commented, “See you there!” When I spotted my friend, she was dressed in one of the costumes she wears on stage at the Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre in Gatlinburg. Two other cast members, Chris MacPherson and Laurence Evans, were with her. They were booked to perform in the family area of the festival.

Before their performance, Chris and Laurence interacted with festival-goers by wearing stilts and then riding a penny-farthing bicycle like they do around Gatlinburg. I started to tell Krisha about the Frederick Clustered Spires High Wheel Race I attended in August but she said she had already read my blog post about it. In fact, she encouraged Chris and Laurence to participate in the race next year. I said they should visit the Maryland Ensemble Theatre and catch an improv show by the Comedy Pigs while they’re there.

At the 2012 Gatlinburg Improv Fest, the cast of Sweet Fanny Adams formed an improv group called Suspenders of Disbelief. Krisha’s husband James is the organizer of the festival,which is held at Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre. Next year’s Gatlinburg Improv Fest is scheduled for March 8 and 9. I’ve already locked it into my calendar.
