A Note from PACP President

Drama-Rama last summer was a big hit with the actors, their partents and the audience. These young thespians gave us all a good time. From their workshop creativity to the final production, enthusiasm and daring, it was the highlight of the summer at PACP.

Dance! Oogie Boogie Wonderland!
Midnight creeps so slowly into hearts
Of men who need more than they get
Daylight deals a band hand
To a woman who has laid too many bets.
The mirror stares you in the face and says,
“Baby, it don’t work”.
You say your prayers though you don’t care
You dance and shake the hurt-
Dance! Oogie Boogie Wonderland! Dance!

Every Brilliant Thing is an interactive, experiential show that captures the reality of mental illness and suicide in a palpable, sometimes hilarious, way. It is a story about resilience, coping, and learning to live with difficult truths. This play is for every human being who knows the struggle of living with or loving someone with a mental illness. It is, in essence, for all of us. 

Mindy Gelder, Director:  I feel extremely honored to be making a debut as a director with this powerful, important show. As a thespian and a mental health professional, it blends two passions in my life perfectly. Every one of us lives with the reality of mental illness at some point in our lives, whether it be growing up with a struggling family member, suffering from anxiety or depression at some point, or living with a chronic mental illness oneself.

Every Brilliant Thing is based on a true story about a child learning how to cope with her mom’s mental illness and her own fears, by composing a list of every brilliant thing in life. This list evolves as the character goes through different developmental stages in life, as does the purpose of the list itself. Drawing audience members into the story, the actor uses improvisation to create a hilarious, entertaining experience. Attendees become part of the story, rather than watching from a distance. It is a show that says struggling is okay. It is real. It is part of life and life is messy, raw, and sometimes “brilliant.”
