This is your last chance to see how it all began!
Orlando, Fl – The last chance to see the original dancer, Jessie Sander, perform in DRIP’s International Drive show is Saturday, August 26, 2017 during DRIP’s 500th show. Jessie Sander is switching into a new role at DRIP as a performance director.
Jessie Sander joined DRIP in 2011 before the show opened on International Drive. She was a part of the fundraising phase, painted the building, stage managed and performed as the first “Yellow” character in the show. Sander performed the first 100 shows without an understudy and is finishing her reign after being an integral part of over 500 shows and special events.
Jessie has had a huge hand in helping shape DRIP into what it is today. She originated the role of “Yellow” and then went on to perform every single role in the show. Her knowledge of the ins and outs of the show, interaction with the messy mediums and audience experience makes her invaluable as a director. explains DRIP founder and creative director Jessica Mariko.
If you were to have asked me 5 years ago where I see myself today I would never have imagined becoming a director for DRIP. It has been such a rewarding experience to build this project from the ground up. Knowing what it has taken to get to where we are makes me ecstatic for the future. Said Jessie Sander. As DRIP’s performance director, I will work closely with our group of passionate artists to create bigger, better and messier projects. I’m most excited to work with our team on events in the community and find ways to give back to the city beautiful that has supported DRIP for the last 11 years!
DRIP’s 500th show and Sander’s final performance will begin when the doors open at 8 PM on Saturday, August 26, 2017. The first hour of the evening will include the option of changing into a white DRIP t-shirt, a paint station where guests can paint themselves and their friends, live t-shirt cutting and the Color Bar, where all the drinks are inspired by color. The full theatrical performance will begin around 9 PM and end a bit before 10 PM. The after party will begin directly after the show where you can hang out and dance with the cast, take photos, try out a 10 foot paint shower and sip cocktails until midnight.
