Overtone Industries ICELAND at the REDCAT New Original Works Festival

Overtone Industries presents the first half hour of ICELAND, an upcoming musical theatre work by Overtones’ artistic director/composer/actress O-Lan Jones and singer/songwriter Emmet Tinley, at REDCAT’s New Original Works Festival July 24-26, 2014.  ICELAND tells the story of Vaya (Cesili Williams – The Color Purple the Musical), a woman who plans an escape from her unfulfilling life by flying to northern Iceland, only to have her plane malfunction on the way. She escapes in a parachute, landing in a fanciful world full of “sea dragons, mermaids, monsters, fragments of life, and unfinished things.” Mundur (David O), the airline clerk who sent Vaya on her way, sets out to rescue her before the memories of her real life disappear. Featuring a twenty-person cast, including two soloists, a choir and chamber orchestra, ICELAND is “a modern love story, set in a mythical and timeless world, where elemental forces and ancient creatures challenge the hero and heroine on an archetypal journey.” The finished work is expected to premiere in 2016.This half hour preview of the multidisciplinary work will close each night of Program One of the NOW Festival, which includes the dance productions Saana/The Foreigner by Wilfried Souly and Still from Rosanna Gamson/Worldwide.

May 21st to July 6th   Press Opening, May 25th
Tues/Wed/Thurs at 7pm Fri/Sat at 8pm, Sat Mat at 3pm

Momma told me not to come. This biting, hilarious, disco infused satire of British suburbia in the 70’s is a party only Mike Leigh could conceive. Stolen straight from real life, these friends test the strength of the ties that bind.

Great Forest Challenge- VIRSIX at the Great Wolf Lodge

gfc_logovirsix-logo4

Many thanks to Eric Gradman and Christian Chaudhari at VIRSIX for having me to up to light the new Great Forest Challenge at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound WA.   Its an innovative and immersive take on the themed attraction- a sort of walking dark ride crossed with a full scale life-sized video game that was great fun to do.    I hope it’s a much of a success as it appears to be!      Congrats, all!

My Werewolf at the Sidewalk Studio Theatre

33322my_werewolf_postcard_front

Staged in black and white film-noir fashion, My Werewolf is set in 1940 in a fictional place called Wolf Creek, Montana where an odd love affair between two brilliant academics, Dr. Julius Slaughter and Dr. Hilary Hunter, is about to commence. When Hilary is joined by her cousin, Christian and his fiancee, Margaret, who have recently returned from Nazi-occupied Holland, an unsettling reveal behind the true meaning of Werewolf is unearthed. As cave-wolves howl at the moon and attack in the night, Hilary is assisted by a traveling healer, as she seeks out the true meaning of love and bloodlust.
