"I created this show about my schizophrenic brother from his diaries and drawings. Extreme creativity and mental illness meet in the middle, defining my brother's attempt to evolve. He goes to the Highway to hitch-hike, to tell his stories to drivers. Invent himself. Part Mark Twain, part Twilight Zone, add a bit of Jewish mysticism and set it on the Missouri River. This one-person show is powerful storytelling in the theatre." - Dana Block

#LightsUpOC CAMPAIGN A SUCCESS!
OFF CENTER HAS NEW LIGHTS
We're looking for someone to love our new lights.
Do you like technical theatre? Do you want to make a great space better? Off Center for the Dramatic Arts in Burlington is looking for an artist/technician/wizard with passion for accessible performance space to join us as our volunteer technical director.
OC is a volunteer artist-run non-profit that operates a fully equipped black box theatre space in Burlington’s Old North End. We exist to provide local and touring artists an affordable performance space for small audience shows that has solid theatrical lighting and sound support.
Joining us as our volunteer Technical Director means working with the executive and board to maintain and enhance our technical capacity. There will be hands-on work helping OC volunteers maintain our equipment, as well as helping design better systems and configurations to improve what we have. You will also advise the executive on budgeting for our technical needs. You have the option to join the board if you wish. There are no set volunteer hours, just a commitment to help us keep OC running smoothly. We have a simple but useful tech set-up, and we want someone who sees its potential to come play with it.
This is a fun opportunity to technically lead a small theatre space. It would be great for a recent graduate looking to add leadership resume experience, a community member who likes to tinker with theatrical lighting/sound, an established technician who wants to contribute to making theatre space affordable for everyone.
