Lobster Alice

Produced by Atlas Theatre,

Directed by Julien Arnold 


In 1946, surrealist painter Salvador Dali travelled to Hollywood to collaborate with a Walt Disney animator and his secretary on a short musical film. It did not go well. This play is a speculation on those six weeks, and explores the nature of Art, Passion and Love in a hilarious, brilliant manner. Sparkling dialogue and outrageous characters inhabit this comedy, brought to you by the company that produced previous Fringe hits “Going to St. Ives” and “Shipwrecked!

Anne of Green Gables

image (6)The Youth Performance Troupe, who performed Charlie Brown to sold-out audiences at last year’s Fringe Festival, brings a JEWEL in Canadian literature to the stage.  Anne of Green Gables tells the story of an extraordinary orphan girl, adopted by a brother and sister living in a quaint community in Prince Edward Island. The adoption brings openness to the hearts and minds of all who come to feel Anne’s expansive love and her thirst for more knowledge. Full of humor and pathos, Anne is a brilliant story for ages 9 and up.
