A couple addenda/edits/colorful notes:

Four String Samurai formed in 2004. v1.0 was Chris Conklin, Erik Martin, Austin Nava, Paul Overton. In 2005 Erik left and Bret Runestad joined. Eric Hirsch began accompanying us in late 2006 (I think) and Ben Birken started playing sometime in 2007; neither was involved with our DSI run. We were named for Paul's ukulele and a movie only Erik had heard of.

Take The Box! existed from summer 2004 to summer 2005. Bens Moser and Birken left early in the run, as did Jon Miles. Later Scott Jennings and Eric Drowatzky left, around which time Jeff Scronce and Jason Quinn were added to the team. Eric might hold the distinction of being the only member of a DSI house team to inform his teammates of his departure via a note left at the customer service desk of a JC Penney. Bret Runestad as the coach at the end of the run. Theater-bestowed starter name was The House of Flying Zingers.

The Happiness did include Mark Kennedy, no maybes about it. Also Katie Haverly, Andrea Margolis, and Dan Siegel. Theater-bestowed starter name was Deskjet, and I think Zach was a little sad they changed it.

The 2005-2006 version of Mister Diplomat also included Lauren Frohne and Bret Runestad, and was coached by Ryan Locante.

I believe Will Guzzardi was a frequent guest of the later incarnation of Papa Fibonacci, not the earlier. I do not believe Mr. Hackney's and Mr. Reitz's tenures overlapped much, if at all.

Baby Liberty also included Mano Agapion. The team was named after my son, sort of, long before I was on the roster, so it's always had a special place in my heart.

Very Articulate Cavemen was coached by Zach Ward. Very Articulate Cavemen performed the form Articulate Cavemen, which we explained very articulately when introducing ourselves.

So this isn't only about teams I played on or coached, I'd like to add:

Night Attack (2004); Zack Bly, Kit FitzSimmons, Ethan Kaye, Dave Siegel. Improvised radio! Someone who isn't me can probably say more about this show; I think it largely pre-dates my arrival in NC, although I did see it at least once at Skylight Exchange.

The Paul Overton Medicine Show (2004): A talent/variety show hosted by Paul Overton that might've run only once. The acts I can remember are Diana Chang doing a comedic opera bit, Ryan Locante parallel parking a little red wagon between two chairs, and Erik Martin ingesting the entire contents of a fish bowl.

The Throw Like a Girl roster is all kind of messed up. There were no fellows at all of the male persuasion in there, as that was sort of the point. I believe Laine Hindley coached early on, and later Diana coached and occasionally sat in.

This is a really wonderful list, and reading it has made my night. Thank you for compiling and posting it.

As I sit here drinking fine, cheap wine, & eating fine, cheap goldfish crackers, I've thought of a few more things I can add:

Finger Trick (Incubator III) (2004): Lisa Palmisano, Chris Conklin, Michael Gold, Ryan Locante, Michelle Stiebel, Bryan Cohen, Rremida Lynch, PT Scarborough, cb: Austin Nava. We were allowed to use the name "Finger Trick" so long as we did nothing to indicate that it might be intended dirtily; management was quite clear on this point.

Room 158 (2006): Amanda Dorich, Katy Jack, Ethan Kaye, Kate Melillo, Jason Quinn, and more I'm forgetting. An "official" house/Harold team, so it really does belong in the permanent record. They originally called themselves "Yolanda Saldivar" but I think it was changed before the first performance--something about not glorifying convicted killers.

Betty (2006): In addition to those listed above, also included Monica Byrne, Dave Siegel, and more I'm forgetting.

Room 158 and Betty were coached by Bret Runestad and Austin Nava but I have no idea who goes with which.

The Family Album was directed by Jason Quinn, and Zach Ward and Kate Melillo were in the cast in addition to those listed above.

Close Quarters: Monica Byrne, Sarah Eldred, Kit FitzSimons, CeCe Garcia, Zannie Gunn, John Reitz, Megan Stein, Sandy Sulzer, cb: Ryan Locante.

Super Secret Space Base was a sketch show written and performed by Greg Brainos, Andi Goetchius, Katy Jack, Ethan Kaye, Ben Moser, and directed by Scott Jennings.

This is completely nuts.

"Tony's Pony" also included Pete O'bryan and Lyda Kendrick, coached by Scott Jennings

"That Certain Female" also included Monica Byrne and Andrew Hibbard and was coached by Austin Nava.

"Tub Cousins" was the only Harold team in DSI history to actually request to be disbanded.

I think the third person in "The Center" was Justin Drogos, but not 100% on that.

Conklin is a little off on the dates for Take The Box!. Team formed in Spring 2005. I also was never on "Betty."
