Kamee Abrahamian, associtate producer of Ed Fringe's best children's show

Kamee's job as associate producer on this show spans a lot of job descriptions.  She handles all of our press connections and public relations.  Which is a good thing as neither Paul nor John are presentable

most of the time.  Kamee is also the one who manages our relationships with other organizations and partnerships with other theater companies. . The kind of lady who makes a man wish he was a better person so

he could be worthy of such a strong, sexy, smart, bit of hot krumpet.  Kamee other projects include production work with

Re-Circle Collective and Blood Ballet Cabaret. Kamee is here to meet people and make friends both for the show and for herself so send her a note or hit us up at the show. Kamee wants to meet you.
