Jackalope Theater: Beginnings

The Jackalobe Theater Group was formed by three Columbia College students, Kaiser Ahmed, Gus Menary, and AJ Ware.  They had written as part of their senior class project a five-year plan for a fictional threater company.  When they graduated they decided to create a real theater company, which they did.  Their first production given at a rent-free west side location was the play The Last Exodus of American Men, written by Andrew B. Swanson, who became part of the group.
