A Note from Playwright,
Foremost, thanks for coming! I hope you have fun. Also, I want to whole-heartedly thank the artists and leaders who helped bring this show to life. Also also, I want to thank my wife Corinne and our bb boi, Oh-Kon, for your support and patience. I love you two.
MHRGGGS is for my inner child, nine year old me would have been SO stoked to see this show. Might’ve shown me earlier in life theater could hold space for a little nerdy weirdo like myself.
Hopefully, your little ones will be inspired from this play to engage in the arts, if they don’t already. Self-expression is essential to life. Assuming you are here with your children, or perhaps have some in your circle, I implore you to encourage their creativity. If this play inspires them to perform, help them find a project to be part of. If they want to draw their own ranger comics, go to the art store right now and buy some paper and pencils. Maybe they too want to write songs for punk rock plant life, then find an out of tune, second-hand guitar and let them wail. When we invest and teach children to express their full inner life, we can cultivate a gentler, more empathetic world — And by god, we desperately need the kindness of future generations. Wouldn’t you agree?
Aside from enjoying the performance and creating a positive memory, my goal is to get you stoked to get out there and play! In this world where we’re all Sisyphus, look to your neighbors and loved ones for heart, inspiration, and good vibez.
