From the Director
Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, David Mamet, brings us a fabulous and far out tale that transports us to the fourth world in the Goolagong system.  Young scientist Binky Rudich, Bob the Sheep, and next-door neighbor Vivian Mooster invent a two-speed clock, which transports them to the planet Crestview where they encounter the SPACE PANDAS!  This is a movement based physical demanding show including a large sheep and panda chase scene. Getting off book by memorizing our lines will be early in the process so we can get on our feet and get moving. We will be exploring prate falls, vaudeville comedy, vocal work and choreographed movement as part of the rehearsal process. I can’t wait to laugh out loud for your auditions!
