“We are living in a vertical world — and I am a non-vertical girl”

A powerful, quirky, and upbeat musical about the world of physical disability. It’s a story about rolling with the punches and thinking on your wheels.

From the onset of a lifelong illness as a teen, through a devastating car crash, and ultimately to love and success, this is one woman’s triumph despite – and often because of – her unique physical differences.

Come see what having four on the floor is really all about!

Casting Call: THE LAST RACE

As many of you know, David Garrison Productions started working on a new feature project benefiting the American Cancer Society. The production (THE LAST RACE) has grown into next year, beyond when many of our current cast and crew have been able to commit.

As production of THE LAST RACE has been extended into 2012, we are holding a new round of cast and crew auditions SAT., AUG 6TH, BLUE ASH LIBRARY, 4911 COOPER RD., BLUE ASH, OH 45242 10AM-4PM

Don’t think of this as just another no pay movie. Rather think of it as a Habitat for Humanity style project with storytelling instead of carpentry skills.

I encourage everyone to consider signing on for a new adventure in making movies to fight cancer.

Also, if you have friends who might want to volunteer, please pass the word on to them.

We have plenty of roles, both in front and behind the camera to fill, a lot of hard work to be done, and adventures to be had!

Questions?, or call me at 513-582-2827.
