Sign Up for an NCDD 2014 Field Trip to “Toast”

We are excited to share the invitation below from Marla Crockett – NCDD Board member and one of our DC site coordinators for NCDD 2014 – to join her for a great field trip during NCDD 2014! Find out more below and read more about our field trips by clicking here.

Join us for Toast during the NCDD Conference!

Wondering what to do on Saturday night during the NCDD Conference? Tickets are still available, so sign up for our field trip to Capitol Hill to see Toast. Produced by the highly respected theatre group, dog & pony dc, the show is described as a “participatory-performance-meets-science-fair.” You and other members of the audience will get drafted by a “secret society of inventors” to help push the boundaries of technological invention. It’s a fun and creative way to explore engagement and innovation, a few things we’re all interested in.

I saw a performance of dog & pony’s Beertown a few years ago and loved how they got the audience involved. We all became citizens of this fictional community in order to help the cast, playing city officials, determine which items should come out of Beertown’s time capsule and which ones should go in. We made up characters and played our parts seamlessly, arguing and weighing how to best represent life in “our” community. I would expect the same sort of role-playing and interaction with the actors during Toast.

In addition, dog & pony will be helping us integrate the arts during our conference, so you can reciprocate by helping them finish their show!

We’ll get started around 4:30, take the Metro to Capitol Hill, have dinner in the neighborhood, and then head to the theatre for the 7:30 performance. Tickets are $15, and transportation and dinner are on you, so join our group for a fun evening on beautiful Capitol Hill!

We have a limited number of tickets, so register for the field trip soon at https://ncdd.org/16398. Thanks!
