Flight of the Lawnchair Man School Edition

Flight of the Lawnchair Man School Edition has been carefully edited, with additional director’s notes throughout, to make the show more producible for high school groups. In some cases problematic language has been changed, while in others an alternate choice is offered at the discretion of the director. Jerry Gorman is a regular guy from Passaic, New Jersey who just wants to fly.  The neighbors think he’s nutty and his mother disapproves.  But his girlfriend Gracie believes in him.  Loosely based on a true story, Jerry soars to 16,000 feet with nothing but a lawnchair and 400 helium balloons. Flight of the Lawnchair Man School Edition is a musical that reminds us that dreams can come true if you believe in yourself.
