STRAIGHT ON 'TIL MORNING Seeks Producers for Off-Broadway Run
Wild Rumpus Productions, an arts company devoted to storytelling and accessibility, eyes an off-Broadway bow for the new play Straight On 'Til Morning and is currently seeking producers. Straight On 'Til Morning is a play about a boy with autism and his journey to Neverland. Wild Rumpus is endeavoring to have 4 autism-friendly performances of the play this fall.
Philip Dallmann, who by day is the Autism Theatre Initiative Coordinator at TDF and by night is the Artistic Director of Wild Rumpus and playwright of Straight On 'TIl Morning says of the production, "This play will not only be accessible to the autism community but also be filled with relatable characters. Having spent time in an autism classroom and working with these kids I am striving to give them the same opportunities I had growing up going to the theatre and seeing characters I could relate to."
To provide the fullest production possible Wild Rumpus has hired Lee Kasper to direct, who was the asst. director for Harvey featuring Jim Parsons and The Performers featuring Henry Winkler and Cheyenne Jackson. To create the autism-friendly performances Wild Rumpus will:
Have no sounds exceeding 90 decibels
No strobe lights
House lights will remain at half
Quiet & Activity areas will be in the lobby for anyone who needs a break
A volunteer staffed with autism professionals
Wild Rumpus Productions is where great stories are given life-- where the journey is fused with a spirit for adventure. Pursuing ways to revitalize the classics and cultivate new work, we seek to invigorate, animate, inspire and embolden our audiences with the stories we tell.
