(with callbacks, if needed, on Thursday, February 9th)
Performances: Seven performances from April 21st to April 29th at Responsible Grace Church, 204 Elm Street, Somerville.
In March and April of 2016, we presented an original full-length adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classic tale of nonsense and whimsy, Alice in Wonderland, adapted by Mindy Klenoff and Jeremy Holstein and directed by Mindy Klenoff. For this performance, we managed to do all sound effects fully practical. The matinées featured games and activities for our younger audience members.
Our first Spring Adventure Spectacular (March 2015) featured gentleman-thief Arsène Lupin in “The Mysterious Traveler” and foppish English nobleman Sir Percy Blakeney saving French nobles from the guillotine as his secret alter-ego “The Scarlet Pimpernel”.
Our second Spring Sci-Fi Spectacular in 2013 was a two-parter. In Red Shift, “Crisis of the Cuddlykins”, Red and the intrepid crew of the Recalcitrant find themselves embroiled in a civil war for merchandise rights and are forced to side with either the ghastly, disgusting, nine-foot-tall shambling insects, or the bad guys. And in our original adaptation of the Atomic-age monster thriller THEM!, radiation from nuclear testing has turned ants into giant monsters that threaten the civilization that created them.
Suffering Shuggoths! The Roaring Twenties have just begun! Flappers! Gin joints! Deep Ones? A newly-regenerated Doctor joins forces with a struggling, nightmare-plagued writer by the name of Lovecraft to investigate attacks in Boston by monstrous creatures. Who is this eccentric Professor Whiteman who appears to be behind it all? What is the secret of the Professor's amazing chair that can seemingly cure the insane? What truly goes on inside the Miskatonic Gentlemen's Club? What will happen to the world, and every living being on it, when C'thulhu rises? Our performance at the 2011 Arisia science-fiction convention, which we then reprised in March 2011, was a mashup of Doctor Who and H. P. Lovecraft.
This was a reprise of PMRP’s gender-swapped take on the classic Star Trek episode “The Trouble with Tribbles”, featuring Capt. Jane Kirk, her half-Vulcan science officer Ms. Spock, and the crew of the starship Enterprise, originally performed at the 2014 Arisia science-fiction convention.
