From Ship to Shape

Written and Performed by Walker Vreeland
In the summer of 2003, 23 year old performer Walker Vreeland took a job as a lead singer for Norwegian Cruise Lines. He could never have imagined the voyage that lay ahead. Boarding the Bermuda-bound ship would precipitate a mental breakdown so severe, he would wind up months later at Johns Hopkins Hospital's Mood Disorder Psychiatric Ward. FROM SHIP TO SHAPE is a tragicomic (and musical) autobiographical monologue about one young man’s struggle with mental illness in today’s world. It's also about the relentless pursuit of healing.

All tickets $20 Adults/$15 Juniors
