ALL have in common?


They all appear in the animated film 

ONE OF A KIND YOU.



Once upon a time, my 5 year old son Jon struggled with Tourette syndrome: more commonly known as Tourette's.  The neurologist told him he was "going to experience feelings of alienation."  Jon actually thought he was going to turn into an alien.  TS is an inherited neurological disorder with its onset in childhood, characterized by multiple physical (motor tics and at least one vocal/phonic) tics. These tics characteristically wax and wane, can be suppressed temporarily, and are preceded by a premonitory urge. 


There is no cure.

 

THE MUSICAL: www.tourettaville.com

WELCOME TO TOURETTAVILLE

By June Rachelson-Ospa, Jonathan Ospa, and Daniel Neiden

WELCOME TO TOURETTAVILLE is a story about a boy named Mark Brayne, (a fictional twin for Jon), who discovers he has TS.  Mark travels to the planet Tourettaville, where he comes face to face with aliens Tick, Blinky, Screamer and their leader, the Big Bleeper. The aliens befriend Mark, inspiring him to self-acceptance and a new self-confidence, and sing, "One Of A Kind You."  


THE SONG: 

Legendary Hall Of Famer and New Orleans music icon DR. JOHN, inspired and moved by Jon’s story, recorded "One Of A Kind You" for him, with the help of an all star band. 

 

AWARDS:

WELCOME TO TOURETTAVILLE won the prestigious VSA Arts Playwright Discovery Award in October 2000, selected by a panel of judges, including Wendy Wasserstein; Marlee Matlin; Jack Hofsiss (director of Broadway's THE ELEPHANT MAN); and film producer, Fred Zollo ("Quiz Show").  The award was presented by Barbara Kennedy Whitten who stated, “The committee was captivated by TOURETTAVILLE…struck by the bold use of humor, music and fantasy to take on sensitive and often painful issues and by doing so, took the audience to new levels of enlightenment and understanding."

 

Fast forward to 2012.  Jon is attending his third year at a wonderful college. He’s studying film, is a great guitar player and an award-winning writer of plays, and short stories.  TS didn’t stop Jon from pursuing his dreams and becoming a successful, wonderful young man.  And he never did turn into an alien.

 

THE CARTOON:

Jacob, Jon’s older brother, is animating Dr. John's "One Of A Kind You."   It is close to completion. A graduate of School of Visual Arts, Jake is now a full time animator for Titmouse Studio in NYC where he animates "Superjail!" and "Metalacalypse" for Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. www.jacobospa.com

 

THE NEW T-VILLE MUSICAL:

In 2012, the NEW full length version of WELCOME TO TOURETTAVILLE  

went on a successful tour.  It's our wish to tour the musical along with this animated movie, making it available at all performances. 

 

WE NEED FUNDS:
