Point A to Point B

Written by David Kilpatrick
Originally Directed by Megan Alrutz

Join a pair of whimsical opposites in a wondrous laboratory of fun found-objects as they discover a world of imagination and transportation! The Scientist likes her learning to come in a calm and orderly and precise fashion, while The Catcher, her coworker in creativity, prefers his explorations to be spontaneous messy and chaotic. Together with a savvy and spirited musical colleague -- and bit of theater magic--they fill their work day exploring the excitement of traveling from Point A to Point B. But they just might not be able to get anywhere without YOUR help! This wonderful wordless experience about working together is really going places!
