Aurora Comedy Nights Present

ACN: Church Mice

Oct 08, 2021-Oct 09, 2021

Conceived and Directed by Will Amato and Abigail Williams
Head Writer George N Koulouris


Church Mice is a musical sketch comedy show conceived under a peach tree in Atlanta by a bunch of local comedians during the pandemic. This show is not an indictment on religion. We already know that the stories in the bible can be interpreted six ways to Sunday. But to Love thy neighbor as thyself is a virtue fit a better world. And when folks gather on Sunday to hear the gospel, things get super weird.

Featuring laugh out loud sketch comedy, live music, singing, dancing, and a host of crazy characters, Church Mice is filled with side splitting laughter performed by a diverse cast of Atlanta’s funniest musical comedians. Enjoy song parodies during the annual Christian talent show, Youth Pastor Chad’s desperate attempts to boost attendance, and watch reverend James get into a fight with a snake.

Written by Sarah Mckee, Evan Conaway, Brandon Stringfield, Abigail Williams, George N Koulouris, and Will Amato

NYTHANIA JEAN-BAPTISTE

Born In Haiti, Raised in Boston Nythania is determined to make a name for herself in not only the music world but also the acting world. Her music journey started at church from the ages of 6, 7 years old. She was known as the church’s favorite singer. At the age of 15, she got a paid internship at the New England Wang Theater where she got to do her first musical. Through the internship, Nythania landed her very first professional gig where she played a young lady who had recently lost a brother through gun violence. Performing was something that gave her hope, made her feel welcome. She’d say it was something about being in group full of individuals where there was no judgement allowed. Something about being on stage and being heard rather than being made fun of for being different. In 2013, Nythania met a producer who had soon become her manager. Working with him gave her the opportunity to work and meet with some very talented people. Through that manager, she met a grammy nominated producer/ engineer whom she currently works with. She also met a radio station owner who she later became a host for. Deciding to go on her own, Nythania is now working on her new music where she has complete creative control. She wants to give her listeners a feel of who she really is, something she didn’t feel she could do before. Her goal is to create an income doing what she love even if it means creating her own path. It is also to tell the stories that have yet to be told.
