Sedona, AZ: In partnership with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Sedona, Verde Valley Mental Health Coalition, and the I Am Worthy Project, Emerson Theater Collaborative presents The i’Mpossible Project: Kicking My Blue Genes in the Butt, written and performed by Joshua Rivedal. Show dates are September 24, 25, and 26. All shows are at 7 p.m. The live show will be presented at the newly opened Sedona Arts Academy at The Collective Sedona in the Village of Oak Creek. It will also be live-streamed for those who prefer to attend online.

A one-man show by Josh Rivedal. His live Broadway-style play Kicking My Blue Genes in the Butt includes fifteen characters and seven songs and is both comedic and poignant. Mr. Rivedal discusses the tragic suicides of both his father and grandfather in a primal piece of live storytelling that creates an emotional connection with the audience and conveys the powerful message that suicide is preventable.

Finally, there will be a live Q&A between Mr. Rivedal and the audience on the importance of mental health and suicide prevention. Representatives of NAMI Sedona and the Verde Valley Mental Health Coalition will moderate the after-show discussion.
