The Eccentric Expedition

Journey with us into the outer regions of space, time and taste, as Sir Professor Captain Zero Fox and his crew of misfit explorers* bring you the best snippets of sci-fi you’ll find in this universe. 

What will each journey hold? Will there be aliens? Dancers? Robots? Singers? Wrestlers? Intergalactic criminals? Ukulele players? Just a guy eating crickets? Who knows! Space is unpredictable, as is this show. The only sure thing is you won’t forget this cruise through the cosmos aboard the OSS Bradbury. The Eccentric Expedition is a late night science fiction variety show like none you’ve ever seen. 

It’s a mad tea party in space and you’re invited! So grab your space suit and whatever other supplies you need to survive in the vacuum of the abyss and join us on this weird strange trip. The Eccentric Expedition takes off every first Friday of the month at Otherworld Theatre Co.

*This crew includes Ghostlight Ensemble’s Maria Burnham who serves as Sir Professor Captain Zero Fox’s First Fox. It also regularly features contributions from other Ghostlight Ensemble members.

The Selfish Giant

Description
Told through an ensemble of physical storytellers and geared toward young audiences, The Selfish Giant tells the story of a large lovely garden and the children who loved to play there until the return of the giant who owned the land. Outraged to see the children on his land, the giant builds a big wall to keep them out and puts up a notice that reads: TRESPASSERS WILL BE PROSECUTED. But without the children, the garden falls into perpetual winter and the Selfish Giant finds himself isolated and all alone.

Based on Oscar Wilde’s short story of the same name, The Selfish Giant illustrates the perils of isolation and the negative consequences of selfishness, but it also teaches us that it is never too late for redemption and for love.
