Plank Talk: STATIONARY | July 24th, 2012
Plank is at Neanderthal Arts Festival 2012 and we sat down with the cast of the STATIONARY.
A Recession-Era Musical
Under the fluorescent lights of real life, obligations and social niceties loom large. But in the world of day-dreams, all things are possible. STATIONARY explores the lives of six young people at a moment when big dreams meet reality checks. It's a musical for the generation that has stepped out - bachelor degree in hand - to discover that the world isn't quite what they were promised it would be. It's for the generation that was coached to dream big, only to find there isn't enough room for everyone to be a winner. Real life is disappointing. Singing about it definitely takes the edge off.
"The music, the fresh harmonies, and the lyrics are terrific. Keep your eye on Delinquent Theatre." - Vancouver Courier
"[It's] laugh-out-loud funny... And they are right, some things are better with a ukulele." - gayvancouver.net
Hosted by Riel Hahn. You can find out more about her amazing comedy at http://infidelia.blogspot.ca/
The BBQ Is On At The Festival | July 21st, 2012
We have a secret.
Well, it isn't a real secret but we thought it was worth a small reminder.
Friday, Saturday, and Sundays during the festival -- we run a Neanderthal BBQ. It features real dinosaur and mammoth burgers!
Oh, fine. No, we don't have real dinosaur meat.
What we do have are yummy smokies and delicious veggie dogs. They are available from just before the first show until just before the last show. Come early and enjoy a dog and a show. If you need more energy to make it to your second show -- pause for some Neanderthal meat (or veggie) during the break!
See you there!
