Ground Up Productions continues to grow from the ground-up. It is the mission of founders Kate Middleton, Wade Dansby 3, and Dan Wheeless to produce The New Classics, plays recently on or Off-Broadway and headed for greatness (or already there). Past productions include, The Shape of Things, Proof, and Lobby Hero. Known for their Southern roots, Ground Up will continue to produce works like Pump Boys and Dinettes, Hot Damn Holiday, and the new musical, The People Vs. Mona due in 2007.
Some steps in their future will be: achieving 501C-3 status, finding and developing new plays, applying for grants, and establishing an internship program.
