performing in San Diego
Junior Theatre’s premiere
production of “The Flight of the Lawnchair Man.” The
musical tells the story of Jerry Gorman, a regular guy from Passaic, New Jersey
who just wants to fly. The neighbors think he's nutty, but his girlfriend Gracie
believes in him. Together, Jerry and Gracie try flight school, the Up With
People Space Program, and anything else they can think of to help Jerry soar
into the stratosphere. But they are stymied by bureaucracy, Jerry's disapproving
mother, and deep, dark family secrets. Loosely based on a true story, Jerry
soars to 16,000 feet with nothing but a lawnchair and 400 helium balloons. In
the end, Jerry has a decision to make: come back down to earth, or fly forever
where the air is free. “The Flight of the Lawnchair Man” is a musical that
reminds us that dreams can come true if you believe in yourself.
