Though she left in 2009 to go to a fancy-schmancy New England grad school, she was lured back to Dad's Garage after graduation by memories of the stench of the green room. Megan is best known for the role of "Mite" in StarGirls, the daring and original space odyssey written and directed by her father over Thanksgiving weekend in 1984.
Improviser, actor, ad exec., and so insecure it ruins everything
Mike has been a member of Dad’s Ensemble since 2006, but much like Val Kilmer in 1997’s "The Saint," his ability to change characters may be why you know him better as Andy Candy, Stooltz, The Strummin’ Mummy or one half of Atlanta’s Only All Bass Rollie Fingers Tribute Band Bases Loaded. Mike has also been a member...

This is what he did for a Klondike bar
Travis almost turned around and left the first time he visited Dad's Garage, because back in 2000 it looked like a murder shed. He went in anyway, did not get murdered, and fell in love. Since then, Travis has performed in hundreds of improvised and scripted shows; co-created shows like B.R.A.W.L., Song of the Living Dead, The Change, and Invasion: Our Town; and had multiple bouts of butterfly-induced diarrhea in Dad's Garage's green room toilet, which is surely one of Atlanta's worst.
Roughly one-eleventh of a ton of fun.
For over a decade, Z has been with Dad’s - subjecting Atlanta audiences to the menagerie of characters trapped in his addled brain. No fatalities as of yet. During the day, his mild-mannered alter ego is that of Creative Director at Nurun, a digital marketing agency in Midtown. In addition to improv, Z enjoys fantasy novels, action figures and watching terrible movies on Netflix Instant ... we know what you are thinking, but sorry ladies, he’s taken.
