Jay and E and the ZigZag Sea is a literacy focused play that creates a text rich, storybook environment while encouraging early elementary students to use the power of words and reading. Performances of this program are given free of charge in Southern California public schools to over 15,000 K-2 students every year.
The play features an original score and uses video projected shadow puppetry and text as a medium for storytelling in a dynamic environment with live actor interaction. Todd’s contributions to the creation of this project include roles as sound designer, music arranger, and all video editing and programming.
