Celia has been described as “A cross between an Earthy Enya, Joan Baez, and Tina Fey.” She dishes up the most delicious concoction of the silly and sacred. With powerful, heart-felt vocals and wacky comedic improvisations, the audience never knows what will happen with Celia on stage.
Pandora Celtica is a band of dark fae bringing you haunting harmonies, tribal drumming, and songs of sorrow, loss and longing. We bring you magic straight out of the realms of Avalon to brighten the mundane world we’re all living in. And for some reason, people find us funny.
When we join forces, we will rule the galaxy as father and . . . ahem, well, at the very least, we’ll guarantee a night of magic, music, and mischief at the Voodoo Comedy Playhouse. Doff your mortal masks and come revel with us as you truly are! Visit us before or after the show at: www.Celiaonline.com and www.PandoraCeltica.com
ALL AGES EVENT!
A benefit for The Story Portal, a Denver-based interactive travelling storytelling stage created in 2013. The Story Portal aims to connect individuals to the vast world of shared experience through spontaneous storytelling via its giant steampunk-inspired wheel that offers such topics as “When It All Changed,” “Breakdown to Breakthrough,” “A Star Encounter” and “All in the Family.” Participants step to the stage, spin the wheel and find what true story is fated for them to tell. The Story Portal project’s mission is to provide this unique, adaptable and inclusive story-telling experience to the world via festivals, conferences and other multi-cultural public gatherings.

It’s our usual karaoke late-night – with a twist – when it’s a Denver Actors Fund night at Voodoo. Put your name and a song in the jar, like usual. Or … put someone ELSE’s name in the jar. You can select from a wide list of accomplished (and fearless) singers from the Denver theatre community and (for $10), they will sing whatever song you want to hear … so it might actually be good! It’s an evening of silliness, terrific talent and a great cause. The Denver Actors Fund provides financial and good-neighborly assistance when members of the local theatre community find themselves in sudden situational medical need. Good deeds like errand-running, meals, construction, rides and company. You’ll be in good company if you come on in for an evening of karaoke night quite like you’ve ever seen it before. Help those performers who enrich our lives every day, but often have the least in terms of salary and health benefits.
