Stefan Lingenfelter will direct with Rik Medic as producer.
Sixth grader Daniel Rocket is firmly convinced that he can fly, a belief that causes him to be shunned and ridiculed by his schoolmates. However, it turns out that Daniel can fly, although, initially he does so in secret. When, at last, he demonstrates his talent to the others, he straps on wings in deference to their stubborn disbelief. From then on, Daniel soars to fame and fortune. A true original, this fresh and richly imaginative work explores the trauma of growing up from a unique and arresting point of view.
Those interested in volunteering for a crew may stop into the theatre during auditions to notify the Producer or send an email providing your name, phone number and the crew for which you’d like to volunteer.
