Frankenstein: August 10 – 12, Matinee on 12th @ 2:00pm.

Frankenstein: August 3 – 5, 10 – 12. Doors: 7:30. Show: 8:00. (Except 2pm matinee Aug 12.) $20 / $15 students/seniors/wage-challenged.  A 1884-Frankestein-poster-11x173chilling new telling of a timeless story. The world premiere of this award-winning adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic novel Frankenstein hits The Pearl stage in early August.  Written by David Elendune, directed by Gary Santucci, this adaptation has converted the character of Clerval to a female actor.  Shelley, in the original, did not create a strong female character. This wonderful twist provides character development beyond the usual approaches, allowing for male- female sexual tension, failed role models and so much more. http://www.classicaltheatre.ca/
Reactions from the audience:The Creature sent chills down my spine.” “Entire cast is fantastic!”  “Whenever I watch anything…I know it strikes a chord if I get chills. Tonight, that happened three times…!” “Unlike any version before it, Rod McTaggart’s performance as the creature will transfix you in your seats. Peter Anderson’s mixture of arrogance and horror perfectly balances his performance. …The set will transport the playgoer back in time; the steampunk props are perfect!”

 

Slaughterhouse-Five: August 16 – 19 / 23 – 26

Slaughterhouse-Five: August 16 – 19 / 23 – 26.  Doors: 7:30. Show: 8:00 $20 / $15 students/seniors/wage-challenged Based on Kurt Vonnegut’s classic novel, Slaughterhouse-Five introduces us to Billy Pilgrim, a Slaughterhouse-Five-08_17man who becomes “unstuck in time” after he is abducted by aliens. In a plot-scrambling display of virtuosity, we follow Pilgrim simultaneously through all the phases of his life. Concentrating on his shattering experience as an American prisoner of war who witnesses the firebombing of Dresden, this satirical and horrifying anti-war story carries a unique poignancy — and humour. Directed by: Liam Grunté. Cast: Robert K. Brown, Vincent Perri, Brian Gilmour, Ciaran Neely, Theresa Noon-Hunter, Valeri Kay, and Shawn Callan as Billy Pilgrim. Stage manager: Anthony Colonello.
