Jump has gotten an in-kind grant from American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco, under their Community Space Sharing Initiative to present Springboard Series IX, new short plays, passages, and monologues created by local writers. These playwrights responded to Jump’s central goal creating theater work that reflects authentic views of mental illness. These works include monologues (Diana Slampyak, Suzanne Gamble and Jeanne Lupton;) short works (Ashley Smiley and Gaetana Caldwell-Smith) and a full-length play (Roberta D’Alois). The series will be a gathering of writers and audience responders to the issues exhibited in our work.
Jump Theater is a supported venture of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit. Donations to Jump Theatre must be made payable to Fractured Atlas just and are tax-deductible to the degree allowed by law.
Jump Theatre’s central goal is to present quality works of theater that recount real stories of mental illness from a variety of points of view. Jump artists create plays, short works and solo pieces and source their work through an outreach to local and other artists and social service agencies.
Jump! Is seeking funds to pay for:
- Insurance costs for the festival
- Artist fees for writers, actors, and technical help
- Other associated costs for marketing and administrative help
