The Cave

October 29, 2022 @ 7:30 pm PDT

A ragged group of animals flee for their lives and take refuge in a cave. The animals, through song, comment on their fate and that of the world. What cased their dire situation? The writing was supported by two themes: The Genesis ‘expulsion from the garden’ story, and our changing environment. In our complacent greed, we are ‘evicting’ ourselves and all creatures fro the ‘garden’. The Cave is our way of telling the story of the earth’s precarious survival.The format of the show takes its inspiration from cabaret. The MC, hilariously played by composer John Millard, tells jokes and stories and gives political context to the songs.The lyrics are at times comic, at times tragic. Two songs are in Cree. John’s music is bombastic, lyrical and moving. The band, led by music direct, Gregory Oh, includes keyboards, accordion, reeds, bass, banjo, and percussion. Adam Paolozza, of Bad New Days renown, directs. The Cave includes an impressive list of performers, musicians, and designers.This show is also one of our ENHANCED EXPERIENCES!Here is your chance to get creative with the option to arrive in costume for this show.
