A lot of pretty pictures today as we continue to celebrate our 11th anniversary. The third wave of WorkJuice Players are just darned photographic! Also, they all joined after the move to Largo, when we had great photographers more regularly documenting the show.

Busy Philipps joined us in April of 2010 playing an Adventurekateer. We don’t have photos from that show, but here’s one from the next month. We just couldn’t stop calling her after that first show.

And here’s Busy at our final show in April 2015:

Janet Varney may be the most recent WorkJuice Player (since December 2014)…

But Janet has appeared in the show for years, first in November 2010, as Donna Henderson:

Joshua Malina made his first appearance in April 2011. We were longtime fans of Josh and continue to be thrilled that he’s become a WorkJuice Player and friend. This photo is from August 2011:

And here’s Josh at our final show with his Barkeep puppet:

And here’s Josh being true to himself:

Busy regarding… anyone on stage is hilarious. A bunch of her great reactions were captured over the years:

This is a very real reaction to Jackson taking over the Sparks theme:

Around 2011 is also when we gained perhaps the most important member of the WorkJuice team: curtaineer Todd Cooper. Were it not for Todd’s hard work and dedication, we’d have performed the show unseen.

Oh noble curtaineer:

Janet is a hard one to crack on stage which makes it all the funnier when she does break:

Of course, our biggest job was keeping Janet from kissing all the boys:

Josh taught us so much over the years. Like a new way to pour a beer:

Here are some more of our favorite photos of the WorkJuice Players: Wave Three.

Josh is such a Method actor that he grew a mustache on stage for just one scene:
