Spinning Tree Theatre presents the Kansas City premiere of Shipwrecked! An Entertainment - The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont (As Told by Himself), a play by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies. The production stars Charles Fugate*, Jennie Greenberry* and Bob Linebarger and is directed by Michael Grayman and Andy Parkhurst.
Louis de Rougemont has sailed the high seas and met exotic islanders, flying wombats, giant sea turtles and an enormous man-eating octopus. Or has he? This 3-actor, multi-character vaudevillian romp "springs to life like a theatrical pop-up book" (The New York Times). A celebration of the imagination with a radio theatre feel, Shipwrecked is 90 minutes of non-stop adventure-filled fun for the entire family.
The show runs tonight, February 1 - February 17, 2013, playing Thurs, Fri, Sat 7:00pm, and Sun 4:00pm. All performances take place at the Paul Mesner Puppet Studio, 1006 E. Linwood Blvd. KCMO.
