danny and the deep blue sea | meet jason goode

You've met the folks you'll be seeing on stage in DANNY AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA, how about the guy who's bringing everything together behind the scenes? Jason Goode is the fearless director behind this fine piece of theatre!

Fun facts about Jason:
  • Like actor Aleks Paunovic, this is Jason's first theatre project!
  • He's no stranger to directing though, Jason is an award-winning short filmmaker with DUCKS, THE HITCHHIKER, POP SWITCH, THE PLANTING, LATE to his name.
  • Not just a flaky artist, Jason has a BSc in Biology.
  • He's also earned himself a Master's degree in Church History from Regent College.
  • As of today, according to his blog, the only movie Jason has seen in 2012 is a repeat viewing of THE KING'S SPEECH. Not a bad choice.
Now check out Jason's short film THE HITCHHIKER, written by PT-er Kathy Parsons and featuring Gina Chiarelli (you saw her in THE BUSY WORLD IS HUSHED) and Aleks Paunovic. Here's another fun tidbit for you: it was while working on this project that Aleks brought the script for DANNY to Jason. They both were equally thrilled and terrified by the prospect of doing the project, which might have something to do with why it took them 4 years to get it on its feet.
