A Brief description of the show:
Let There Be Balloons, a musical written by 8 artists ranging in age from 22 to 63, is about Sarah, a rebellious young woman who returns to her hometown after a tumultuous time in Africa, working as a volunteer. Leaving one kind of chaos, she enters a new one as the town is facing a disaster- the closing of the local balloon factory. Sarah’s father is amongst the majority of the town that has been laid off and holds fast his old school thinking. Ultimately, in this new world, Sarah takes a huge leap to restart her own family financially by giving birth to a new family as she becomes a surrogate mother for a gay couple from New York. Will Sarah’s family and the town ever be the same? Is change the only thing that can save them?
Featuring: Jason Pomerantz, Nori Tecosky, Robert Johnston, David Spangler, Nina Zak, Richard Cortez, Rick Gore Nils-Petter Ankarblom and Carrie Gilchrist.
