"The Near Disaster of Jasper & Casper"



A one-man show starring Jason Woods

Jasper, adopted brother of Casper, is looking for his true family and discovers a blunt witch (Winifred Isabell Titania Charlotte Higgins: W.I.T.C.H), a mysterious, articulate dragon, and a purpose he never expected. As Jasper gets closer to the truth, he confronts his own fears, a vicious queen, his brother’s self obsession, and a heartbreaking path to his own destiny. Award-winning actor Jason Woods morphs into each character with rapidfire dexterity and heartfelt authenticity on a fantastical adventure for the child in everyone. Ghosts, magic, and Deadly Cows abound in The Near-Disaster of Jasper & Casper, headed Off-Broadway in NYC this summer!

One Show Only!
