Heather Bagnell-Scheller

Heather Bagnall Scheeler comes to us having recently returned from a 9 month tour with Disney Cruiseline and a nine weekend tour with the Maryland Renaissance Festival. This is her first appearance at the clown cabaret but she has been performing in the DC metro area for nearly two decades (and looks mighty fine for her age, whatever that may be). An Annapolis native, Heather combines dance, movement, acrobatics and spoken word with a wicked sense of humor and irony, drawing from her own life experiences to capture and encapsulate moments in time that resonate with audiences young and old alike.
