Walden was first conceived in 2002 and costumed in 2003.  It was shot at Walden Pond mostly during the summers of 2004 and 2005.  It is a transcendentalist illustration of the spirit and ecology of Walden Pond.

The Kaleidoscope Cabaret was a showcase of Boston area performers, broadcast live on February 23rd, 2003, via an I-Net (Institutional Network) cable connection running from The Middle East Restaurant & Nightclub to Cambridge Community Television (CCTV), and then on to Somerville Community Access Television (SCAT).  A dedicated group of staff, members, and volunteers from CCTV ran the 3 camera live shoot.  The audio and video quality are not the best, due to some good old analog technical difficulties encountered during the broadcast.
