Jump! awarded a 2009 Theatre Bay Area CA$H Grant

It’s old news by now, but we wanted to let you know that Jump! was awarded a 2009 Theatre CA$H Grant from Theatre Bay Area. We’re honored! We’ll be using this grant to produce Liz Gjelten’s new play, Hunter’s Point, a play about fierce love and bicycles that asks: What is ‘moral treatment’ of the homeless mentally ill, and what prevents our society from providing it? True to Jump!’s aesthetic, the play will layer music and video projections to create a multi-media theatre experience that’s deeply rooted in our hometown of San Francisco.

What better way to celebrate than to gather together and drink a toast at a local watering hole? Here’s the crowd:

Jumoers celebrate awarding of the CA$H grant

Jumpers gathered in fall 2009 to celebrate receiving a CA$H Grant to produce Hunter's Point.

From the left (standing), that’s Gaetana, Roberta, Bob (Roberta’s husband), Rebecca, Justin (Rebecca’s husband), Nena and Mike. Seated are Paoli (holding Lulu) and Liz — the playwright and guest of honor!

We’re looking forward to a reading of the current Hunter’s Point script on April 25, 2010 as part of Springboard V.
Tickets are on sale now!
