paper chairs enthusiastically announces the premiere production of Boom for Real, a new work by Austin playwright Jason Tremblay.

Boom for Real Jason Tremblay paper chairs Austin TXWhen the world's greatest dancer is ghoulishly disfigured in a fire, she trades her heart to regain her physical beauty. But this shady deal robs her of her greatest gift: her ability to dance. So she sets a curse on the rest of the world, abolishing all dancing forever. Time passes and bleakness grows beneath a grey sky raining ash until a young spritely seamstress,
Boom, unearths secrets to the past. Smoking rats in sewers, a seedy theatre with talking walls, and ghosts lurking in the mirror send Boom on a journey to lift the curse. What happens when the world is free to dance again? Just outside the spotlight, lies the dark side to ambition and the price we pay when following our hearts.

THE COMPANY: Boom for Real's ineffable cast features Hugo Vargas-Zesati, Dallas Tate, Kelly Hasandras, Noel Gaulin, Jacob Trussell, Michelle Keffer, Letty Evans, Pilar Andujar and Ashley Rae Spillers as Boom.

Mark Stewart will compose an original score and lead a live band including Christopher Johnson, KhattieQ, and Deb Norris.

The design team comprised of Natalie George (lights), Benjamin Taylor Ridgway (costumes), and Lisa Laratta (scenic) will transform a raw warehouse into a looming land fit for black fairy tale. Choreography by Elizabeth Doss. Keri Boyd will direct the entire raucous shebang.
