Huge shout out and thanks to our many generous donors for Springboard VI!
Jump! Literally could not have produced this event without the help of our wonderful donors. A.C.T. generously provided the performance space at no cost if Jump! paid for insurance. The donors below made it possible for us to purchase the insurance and use our other financial resources to pay the artists participating in Springboard VI.

News from Jump! Theatre for 2011
We’ve had a very busy year behind the scenes here at Jump! – plenty of updates on our activities below!
First, congratulations to Nena St. Louis and Gaetana Caldwell-Smith on the publication of Nena’s play “Do You Want To Buy My Brain?” and Gaetana’s “Peas Porridge.” Edited and designed by Tyler Cohen and Jump! Member Madison Clell, these plays are two of the first works presented by Jump! in our Springboard series of New Works. The chapbook is available for $8 by emailing
Next up, Jump! is delighted to announce a reading of The Dream in Which I’m Dying, by Nicholas C. Pappas, on Tuesday, March 8, 2011 at The Marsh Theatre in San Francisco. Directed by Rebecca Longworth , Nick’s play is an exploration of one soldier’s experience in Iraq and the moral questions he must confront upon his return. The play premiered at SF State’s Greenhouse series last spring, and we are thrilled to be in a partnership with Nick around developing his play.
As for production news, we are also delighted to announce the upcoming production of Hunter’s Point by Elizabeth Gjelten in June 2011 at St. Boniface Theater in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district. Those of you who supported the reading in March 2010 will be especially gratified to learn that this play will now have a 3 week run in June. Directed by Christine Young, Hunter’s Point is a play about bicycles, the fierce love between sisters and “moral treatment” of mental illness. Stay tuned to our website for further news and dates.
Thanks to all our supporters who have been waiting for news of our activities and who have been hanging in with us for the past few years. 20011 will NOT disappoint!
