Our first public performance of some brand spanking new material from our gymnastics musical that we've been developing at Fresh Ground Pepper's Playground Play Group is coming up this Thursday, 10/6, at 7:30pm at Dixon Place! We're presenting about 25 minutes of material, and we're co-billed with indubitable multi-hyphenate Adam Stasiw, who will be doing a kick-ass piece with dance, and projections and algorithms, oh my! The whole thing will be under an hour. The Dixon Place Lounge is open before and after the show though, and you can bring your drink in the theater to raise a glass to feats of athletics and multimedia! The deets:

Amanda Borden, Amy Chow, Dominique Dawes, Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Jaycie Phelps, and Kerri Strug made up the first U.S. women’s gymnastics team to win Olympic team gold at the 1996 Atlanta games. The Magnificent Seven imagines their inner lives on the two days of team competition, as they reach for their young dreams and their faces on the Wheaties box, all leading up to a star-making vault heard ’round the world.
