Josephine Morgan

Josephine Morgan

Josephine Morgan teaches Contrology by day and solves mysteries by night. She plans on contacting Rudolph Valentino at her next seance but in the meantime will continue making dances and costumes for the discerning flapper. Josephine recently bobbed her hair and is now adjusting to the modern look.


Sara Sullivan

Sara Sullivan is a notorious flapper and basement booze maker. In her spare time she is a photographer and graphic designer. Please view her work at: lexieseptentrion.com. Sara is also an award winning Irish dancer. Plagued by somnambulism you may often find Sara wandering the streets of Portland's Chinatown late at night, wearing the latest fashions and nightclubbing until dawn.

Sanjna Varela

Born in India, forced to work on the streets of London as a pickpocket and chimney sweep, Sanjna was eventually returned to her rightful parents in North Carolina. A nurse, mother and red hot tamale, Sanjna still finds time to perform with the Murray Irish Dancers and The Charleens. Her specialties include fast tempo reels and doing the shooky shooky!

Allison Kramer

The Charleens found an old Kewpie doll at the flea market. After feeding her chocolates and champagne cocktails she came to life. The Charleens decided to keep her and named her Allison Kramer. She stays in the basement tending to the moonshine and cured meats while listening to Helen Kane and practicing dance steps. Allison will be sure to wind you up and shoot an arrow through your heart when you see her perform!
