To support the creative visionaries of the current Off-Off-Broadway world, Judson Memorial Church presents MAGIC TIME, a free monthly series of staged readings of fresh plays by the movement’s astonishing voices.
Each month, a new playwright is provided with free space, a small stipend, and whatever magic we can muster to conjure his or her vision to life in the very space where it all began, the Judson Memorial Church Meeting Room. What results is a party with a brand new play smack-dab in the middle of it.

Dear señora, senoritas, señor, amigos and Doritos
Occupy Poppyseed Street is a mix of Sesame Street, Political Action, and someone ruining their life, all bursting and bubbling with flavah! BAM! BAM! BAM!
TRAVIS FREEMAN’S BIO
Travis Freeman is 14 years old and is in 9th grade at quest to learn upper school. He is and always will be a native New Yorker. GO BROOKLYN DODGERS!! He First came up with occupy poppyseed street when his drama teacher asked him “So travis what are you writing for drama class”. Travis was in a sesame like mood so he said “OOH OOH I KNOW I WILL MAKE A PLAY ABOUT SESAME STREET”. Then the drama teacher said “Ok travis you might want to incorporate something else with that too”. So Then Travis said “OOH OOH I KNOW I WILL PUT AN ELEMENT OF OCCUPY IN TO MY PLAY”.
And that's how the writing began.. Travis then performed the play as an actor in front his whole school. Meanwhile he was going to Judson church and meeting all the necessary people. E.g. Sara Duncan, Michal Ellick, Micah Bucey and others. And one day got his play to be read at Magic Time. So now we are here. Hope you enjoy the play.
Judson Memorial Church is located at 55 Washington Square South, New York, NY 10012.
