Collins has performed in five Marlboro College productions, organized and hosted the Marlboro "Open Mike" Night, and formed Marlboro's Improv Comedy Troupe that performed at several comedy festivals around New England.
Raleigh has performed in a number of Marlboro productions and the feature film "Smoke on the Water," directed by Jay Craven. This is her third full-length solo performance. She is currently a resident of Belfast, Maine, where she works with director Larraine Brown.
