Event description
Join us for an evening of fun with improv troupe Rollin' With My Homies hosted by Santina Muha

About this Event

Help us support a project that will make a difference!

Host Santina Muha invites a rotating cast of her funniest and most seasoned improviser friends to join her in wheelchairs onstage for an improv show unlike any other.

The first half is inspired by scenes from a movie or TV show depicting a character who uses a wheelchair, and the second half is based on a live discussion with a special guest who actually lives with a mobility disability.

Is Hollywood getting it right?

(Spoiler: No they’re not. But we’re trying.)

Special guests include Tobias Forrest, Dhruv Singh, Talia Tabin and more!

All proceeds from the show will go to benefit the feature film DARUMA, starring Tobias Forrest and John Lawson.

ABOUT DARUMA

http://bit.ly/DarumaSeedNSpark

Daruma is a road trip movie that tells the story of a bitter paraplegic who enlists the help of his cantankerous neighbor, a double amputee, to transport the four-year-old daughter he never knew he had to live with her maternal grandparents on the other side of the country.

What makes this film different is that the two lead actors are not only authentically cast, but the film is not about disability. 

How awesome is that?

Santina and her awesome group of improvisors are helping us make this project a reality with this special show.

For more information about the film and crowdfunding campaign please watch the pitch video. The film has already garnered support from organizations including the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, The Ruderman Foundation, RespectAbility, and the Media Access Awards.

We can't do this alone, but together we can.

WHAT ORGANIZATIONS ARE ALREADY SAYING ABOUT DARUMA

“Daruma is exactly the kind of project RespectAbility advocates for. It embodies the values we’re pushing for in this industry— inclusiveness both in front of and behind the camera with a narrative that promotes a positive, accurate representation of disability.”

Lauren Appelbaum, RespectAbility

“We need more writers with your vision!” 

The Ruderman Family Foundation  

“There are 61 million Americans with disabilities yet only a scant 2% of characters on TV are disabled. This is an historic disgrace. But change is coming and projects like Daruma are leading the way.”

Allen Rucker, Chair, WGA Writers with Disabilities Committee; Co-chair, Media Access Awards
