The    Mystery   of   Irma   Vep:   A    Penny   Dreadful

by Charles Ludlam
Directed by Craig Kolkebeck


November 4 & 5 from 7pm to 9pm


This satire takes place at Mandacrest, the English country estate of the Hillcrest family. Eminent Egyptologist Lord Edgar Hillcrest is a widower, having lost his beloved wife, Irma Vep. He recently remarried Lady Enid, a stage actress still uneasy with her new position as Lady of the manor. Her maid, Jane, doesn't think she'll ever measure up to Lady Irma. Meanwhile, Lord Edgar is disturbed by strange happenings out on the heath, including the monthly disappearance of his groundskeeper, Nicodemus. Fearing that Mandacrest is haunted by a vengeful vampire, Lord Edgar goes on an expedition to Egypt to discover immortality.


This definitive spoof of Gothic melodramas that was recently revived Off-Broadway to raves, is a quick change marathon in which two actors play all the roles. A sympathetic werewolf, a vampire, and an Egyptian princess brought to life when her tomb is opened make this a comedy that has everything. 


2 Male Actors will portray:

All of the roles of these classic characters, from Tiny Tim to Scrooge himself, are paid positions.


Scrooge's Christmas Trolley Tour is a dramatic retelling of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol with a comedic twist.

Beginning November 23rd, Scrooge's Christmas Trolley Tour will run four times every Thursday and five times every Friday and Saturday with final performances December 29th.


Scrooge's Christmas Trolley Tour offers the unique experience of a live theater performance and trolley ride in one.  Our performances begin with the trolley's arrival at the Rowan County Convention Bureau. Once the trolley has come to a complete stop and doors open, all guests are invited aboard. During the Trolley ride, passengers will ride with Scrooge and experience his past, present, and future, with each performance lasting about 45 minutes. This estimation includes stops and short scenes on and off the trolley, but time may vary if we experience traffic.
