Stepping Out by Richard Harris

Frog Dog Productions in association with The Shang Bang Gang presents:

STEPPING OUT by Richard Harris
Directed by Danny Herman

This good-natured comedy from Richard Harris chronicles several months in the life of a beginning tap class in Austin, TX. Each of the eight students, who come from a variety of backgrounds, has his or her own reason for joining. Whatever the cause, they make a point of coming every week to chat, relax and, if they can manage to, learn a couple of steps.

Led by Mavis, their eternally patient instructor, and accompanied by the pianist Fraser, the students (who range from hopeless to competent) strive to master the basics of tap. But the steps and routines are just the background for the real focus of the play — the relationships and interactions of these ten very different people. By their final performance, not only have the class members developed some degree of skill, but they have also overcome the inhibitions, awkwardness and personality conflicts that have kept them out of sync.
