First Stage is bringing a new show to the stage at month’s end. Written by Finegan Kruckemeyer, the online virtual playhouse show Escape From Peligro Island is billed as a “createe your own adventure” play in which audience votes on the hero’s path. Callaway Brown is stranded on a desert island and it’s up to the viewers to help him out.
From the promo: “Will Callaway time travel to the Wild West and meet a talking horse? Develop superpowers and fight crime in the future? Or have a crush on a vampire? The choice is yours!”
The show runs Jan. 29 - Feb. 6. For more information, visit First Stage online.
