Leave the magic behind in this darkly humorous, cutting examination of the megalomaniac who shaped a thousand childhoods: Mr. Walt Disney. The carefree and charming creator of so many beloved characters—father-figure to a generation of Americans—fades away as this fraught and fast-paced play chases down the dark heart of the Disney machine. Power, betrayal, deception, and disillusionment weave together to form a portrait of a man so full of hubris and obsessed with his own legacy, he tried to remake the world and achieve immortality. Join us at the table. Regional Premiere.

Eric Poch (Ron Miller) is absolutely stoked to join Single Carrot for the first time. He graduated from Towson University with a degree in Theatre and loves performing in Baltimore. His credits include the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company (Taming of the Shrew, Richard III, Three Musketeers), Everyman Theater (The Beaux’ Stratagem) and the Baltimore Rock Opera Society (Chronoshred, Electric Pharaoh, Grundlehammer). His mom worked for the Disney Corporation for most of his childhood, and he hopes she enjoys the show!

Mohammad R. Suaidi (Roy Disney) is an educator and theatre maker who graduated from Towson University’s MFA Theatre program. Recent performance works include Giovanni’s Room, a site-specific piece based on the James Baldwin novel (AKIMBO Dance and Movement Art Festival), A. Rey Pamatmat’s play Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them (Iron Crow Theatre), and the collaboratively devised Promenade: Baltimore (Single Carrot Theatre). During the day, Mohammad works at Strong City Baltimore’s Adult Learning Center, where he teaches English to new immigrants and refugees. Mohammad lives in the Arcadia neighborhood of Baltimore City with his husband Dan (danmeyerchoir.com) and their son Johan (#johanbestbabyever)
