Big Planet Productions, in association with the Alley Theater Louisville, presents the Out of the Box Series for the ‘09-‘10 season-at the Pointe (1205 East Washington Street/Near the Mellwood Arts Center). The Out of The Box Series will feature a variety of plays, performance art/experimental theater and children’s theater that intend to push the envelope in drama, music, singing and dance. Big Planet Productions was founded by Jou Jou Papailler in Los Angles in 1998. Mr. Papailler is a native of Louisville and was Jamal, The Park Ranger, on Sesame Street. Jou Jou studied with Wynn Handman in New York at the American Place Theater, Off-Broadway. Mr. Handman taught Denzel Washington, John Leguizamo, Mira Sorvino and other well known professional actors. Collaborating with Scott Davis and the Alley Theater Louisville, Mr. Papailler will now have an opportunity to share his training and experiences through acting classes and by directing some of the performances at the Pointe.
