In BATTLE OF THE BARDS V, three ensembles perform scenes adaptations of classic works. The audience then picks which play goes into Ghost Light’s 2011-12 Season. Admission includes one vote – additional votes are only $1 each. All proceeds support the work of Ghost Light Theatricals. The evening will be held together by the vivacious Val Brunetto!
BATTLE OF THE BARDS V features a selection from FREAK STORM by Don Fleming, directed by Ellie McKay – an adaptation of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” on a volcano-powered secret base in the Cascade Mountains, where a mysterious figure strives to wreak revenge on her enemies and save the Earth; a piece from THE TINDERBOX: OR DON’T SCREW THE POOCH by Pat Haines-Ainsworth, directed by Suzannah Rogan – a not-so-reverent adaptation of the familiar fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen that presents a simple truth: when given a chance at wealth, fortune, and fame, we’ll almost always mess things up; and part of THE LITTLE PRINCESS written and directed by Peter Frost – an adaptation of the Frances Hodgson Burnett novel, “A Little Princess” tells the story of a girl who is sent to a boarding school by her wealthy father and uses her imagination and empathy to get through difficult times.
Right after the BARDS V performance Saturday, February 12th, cast, crew, and audience will celebrate and find out the winning show. A ticket to the BARDS V or a donation is admission into the party.
