Squeeze My Cans
Hollywood Fringe : June 9th – June 26th
A captivating and revealing personal story. From devotee of Scientology through a soul
searching illumination to the liberation of her drive to thrive….
Have you ever been declared a “suppressive person?” Have you ever considered what it might be like to audition to be Tom Cruise’s girlfriend? What would you do if the carrot of spiritual freedom was dangled in front of you, waiting to be seized? Writer/performer Cathy Schenkelberg decided to take this loss and regret and make art. On the rollercoaster ride from her Catholic upbringing in Nebraska from a family of ten, to her life in Scientology as a single mom. For nearly 20 years, Cathy Schenkelberg counted herself an enthusiastic devotee of Scientology. The upstart religion promised friendship and connections, pathways to success and world unity.
A talented actress, in both theatre and on camera, Schenkelberg did achieve financial security as one of the country’s top voiceover artists.
Under pressure, she signed up for more and more classes and counseling ultimately handing over nearly every dime she had, including her IRA’s, Equity on her house and her daughter’s college fund, always in the effort to achieve spiritual freedom.
After reaching these upper levels she found herself, with the help of the E-Meter (used in counseling- similar to a lie detector) in an effort to rid her body of alien life forms carrying identities other than her own. Falling farther than ever from who she had hoped to be, and much less of who she was.
Now, she continues to share that true story as a cautionary tale of how she “Survived Scientology.
