Wild Rumpus Productions Launches New Web Series Comedy

On November 12th, Wild Rumpus Productions, an arts company devoted to storytelling and accessibility, premiered in conjunction with Bronco Buster Sketch their new web series comedy Direction. Direction is a series that tells the story of an acting teacher with a reoccurring case of mistaken identity and his 4 acting students. Based on a short play by Wild Rumpus Artistic Director Philip Dallmann, Direction explores the consequences of naming your child Mark Paul Grosselar.

Direction is a joint venture between Wild Rumpus Productions and Bronco Buster Sketch, having been written and directed by Rumpus Artistic Director Philip Dallmann and Bronco Buster co-­‐creator Matt Kerstetter, childhood friends. The series was funded by a successful Indiegogo campaign in the fall of 2013. The duo says of the show, “It’s pretty good.” Their mothers speaking about the show say, “It’s all right”.

Direction also features a couple of actresses recently known to the web series community. Kelly Warne, who was recently seen on the hit web series The Residuals, plays Bridgette, a has-­‐been actress who was know for being decapitated in the early 90’s. Joining Kelly is Amanda Nicholas, who was just seen in season 1 of Gigahoes, as Christina, a method actress with an ever-­‐changing stage name.
