In collaboration with Molly Coogan, Abby spearheads "Membership Down!" (a tip of the hat to the beloved adventure novel "Watership Down".) It's a series of live variety game shows that originated in collaboration with Nate Luce and Elisha Wiesner at the Oak Bluffs Public Library. The team hosts three local contestants who vie to win cash prizes for the local charity of their choice. "Membership Down!" is free and features original interactive games with loads of goofy entertainment and often pizza - provided to a live, all-ages audience. Past contestant include Alton Sterling, Sidney Morris, Sakiko Isomichi, Meredith Aldrich, Leah Crosby, Scott Hershowitz, Sara Ahren, Timothy McNerney, Rizwan Malik, Brent Alberghini, Jefferson Munroe, Holly Pretsky, Brian Dowd, Michael Barnes, Sharon Strimling, Claire Gross, Xavier Powers, Gordon Healy, Caroline Derrig, Rob Myers, Jannette Vanderhoop, Tim Dobel, Jesse Keller Jason, Andy Dickerson, Jane Loutzenhiser, Danielle Mulcahy, Brian Ditchfield and James Jennings. Other past participants include guest performers the MV Fly Girls: Jessica Francis, Alise Hagazian, Sophie Hiller, Lizzy Kent and co., and drag queen Reina del Taco, guest judges Anna Barber and Allyson Malik, DJ Jordan Bullinger, and membership-mates Lexi Willett, Flo Alexander, Nina Moore, Grace Hall, and Henry and Gus Coogan. Look forward to more MD coming soon!
"Membership Down!" has been supported, in part, by the Library Friends of Oak Bluffs, Pizza di Napoli at the Loft, The Barn Bowl and Bistro, The Cardboard Box, Dion's and the Martha's Vineyard Cultural Council.
