Attendees are invited to dress up and join the Campus Program Board as Benner shares the story of love and relationships via her one-woman show featuring physical stunts and comedy.
Inspired by classic vaudeville and the golden-era comedy, Benner has spent her life working tirelessly to perfect the art of making people happy. After graduating with a bachelor of fine arts in acting, she worked professionally in regional theater in the San Francisco Bay Area’s regional theater and then became a solo artist, showcasing her talents on the streets of San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf, to Busker festivals all over the world, and on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno. The impact that entertainers such as Bill Irwin and Janet McTeer have had on Benner are evident.
Benner has also appeared in the films such as “The Darwin Awards,” “The Lost Coast” and “Rhino.”
