Miscellaneous Productions invites the public to a free open rehearsal of their new musical theatre work, MONSTERS. The free open rehearsal and community forum takes place on Friday, April 28 at the Dance Centre’s Faris Family Studio.
Based loosely on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the show is designed for children and played by young actors to help reach the audience on the same level. The title ‘monsters’ are both real and imagined as encountered by the cast of 14 youth players. When the show debuts in October, the audience will find strong anti-bullying, anti-violence, anti-racism themes. The play explores how and why a community creates and supports a ‘monster’, how collusion functions and how many are unaware of how incredibly damaging bullies can be.
A one-of-a-kind youth oriented arts-based company, Miscellaneous Productions is a 17 year old collaborative, non-profit creating culturally and socially diverse, multi-barriered and mainstream performances, films and music for the public.
MONSTERS’ free open rehearsal and community forum takes place Friday April 28, 2017, 7pm at The Dance Centre, 677 Davie Street (at Granville St)
