The members of EstroFest are Dresden Engle, Andrea Holland, Norma, Holland, Allison Roberts, and Freyda Schneider. These entertaining women write, produce, direct, and perform all of their sketches and videos. Their work has been compared to the classic works of Saturday Night Live and reminiscent of such comedic legends as Gilda Radner, Lily Tomlin, and Carol Burnett
EstroFest first took the stage in February 1999, immediately met with standing ovations, standing-room-only audiences, and critical acclaim. The troupe has performed in Rochester, Off-Broadway and in Toronto, earning four stars from the Toronto Star ("Hugely funny, one act you won't soon forget!").
EstroFest formed in 1998, the brainchild of Allison Roberts, who had an epiphany after witnessing a group of women laughing together on the street.
In Rochester alone, more than 20,000 audience members have experienced EstroFest's unique brand of humor. EstroFest is extremely grateful to those who have supported the troupe, from loyal audiences and supportive husbands to the backstage crew and the media.
