It's not just a show.
It's an experience.

The Ladies invite you to laugh at life’s most routine moments through original experiences that use live performance in unexpected places.

It’s not quite dance.

It’s not quite improv.

It’s not quite theatre.


It’s just unforgettable.


Check out the ladies behind The Ladies & Yes And Productions!

Ladies Gone Mild

The Ladies are on the run from their families. They are hiding out at their ultimate resort destination and invite you to join them as they unwind from their daily motherly grind.


Equipped with a map, ticket holders will experience the resort’s comically bizarre amenities including the Sunscreen Sommelier, the Relaxation Guru, and the Retro Dance Specialist. A new surprise awaits around every corner as audience members find their own path to the climactic rooftop promenade where The Ladies get back in touch with their bachelorette spirit.

Watch The Ladies


The Ladies are a zany, awkward pair of moms, clinging to the past to get through today.


With a fresh ability to laugh at life's most routine moments, physical comediennes Marlene Strang and Leanne Schmidt have been performing together since 2016. They bring their wacky and awkward style of movement and live theater into the most surprising and unexpected locations. They are the co-directors of Yes And Productions.


Professionally trained dancers, they have been featured at Chandler Center for the Arts, Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn NYC, the Beta Dance Festival in Phoenix, Center for Visual Arts in Denver, the Regional Alternative Dance Festival in Kalamazoo, and were showcased at the 50th Anniversary of Dance at ASU. Previous productions include “Ladies in the Headlights," "Ladies Gone Mild," and "Let Your Lady Out" in venues around the Valley. 

"an unclassifiable yet compelling mixture of dance, improv comedy, installation art, and immersive theater."
