First Time Out

a variety show

The Show

First Time Out is a variety show for first time performers. Close to 300 comedians, musicians, dancers, storytellers & jugglers have taken to the stage for the first time since launching in November 2014. FTO takes the fear out of performing in an incredibly supportive environment. Grownups are rarely afforded the opportunity to play with nervous energy in a positive way. We all crave experiences in which we can feel something real and FTO helps us do just that. We're always looking for new acts! Sign up here.

The Band

The FTO Band has been with us since the very beginning. We love them.

The host

Molly Sonsteng hosts and produces every show. She studied opera performance in college. She stopped singing for over 10 years. FTO was her answer to putting her art back into the world. Every single performer is an inspiration to Molly.
