Feral Tale Theatricals Presents “The Explorers Club,” July 30 – August 1, at Faith Lutheran High School’s Chapel and Performing Arts Center

The wildly farcical production will take the stage for a limited engagement of four performances

 

Hungry-or thirsty– for adventure? Feral Tale Theatricals will bring to the stage for four special performances a hilarious new comedy by playwright Nell Benjamin: “The Explorers Club.” The wildly farcical production will be offered to the Las Vegas community, Thursday, July 30 – Saturday, August 1, at Faith Lutheran High School’s Chapel and Performing Arts Center at 2015 S. Hualapai Way, Las Vegas, NV 89117. Tickets are now on sale at www.ShowTix4U.com.

 

“We are thrilled to bring ‘The Explorers Club’ to Las Vegas audiences,” said Erik Ball, president of Feral Tale Theatricals, who portrays Harry Percy in this production. “I had a chance to see the production in New York and fell in love immediately. It’s raucous, uproarious, and wildly funny, but it’s also very clever, and we’re thrilled to offer it to the Las Vegas community.”

 

“The Explorers Club” invites audiences on the adventure of a lifetime, with a prestigious group of thrill seekers in 1879 London as they face their most daunting challenge yet: the president of the group wants to include as a member of the society, the unthinkable…a woman. As the fun-loving and early-drinking group of distinguished gentlemen comes to terms with the bright and beautiful candidate, the story unfolds amidst laughter, personal journeys, mistaken identities, venomous reptiles, hostile natives, and of course, brandy and cigars.

 

Cast members of the Feral Tale Theatricals production of “The Explorers Club” include Lysander Abadia (as Lucius Fretway), Jacqueline Walker (as Phillida Spotte-Hume), T.J. Larsen (as Professor Cope), Jacob Moore (as Professor Walling), Glenn Heath (as Professor Robert Stone), Erik Ball (as Harry Percy), Robert Langford (as Sir Bernard Humphries), W. Michael Close (as the Irish Assassin), and Joey Minich (as Beebe). The show is directed by Sean Critchfield.

 

Performances of “The Explorers Clubs” can be seen Thursday, July 30 at 7 p.m., Friday, July 31 at 7 p.m., and two performances on Saturday, August 1 at 2 p.m. (Matinee) and 7 p.m. Reserved Seating Tickets are now on sale at www.ShowTix4U.com. All tickets are $12.00.

Super Summer Theatre and Feral Tale Theatricals Present
Shrek The Musical
August 6-23

Super Summer Theatre and Feral Tale Theatricals will welcome Shrek the Musical to the stage, August 6-23. Tickets to the show, based on the 2001 blockbuster DreamWorks film, “Shrek,” and William Steig’s 1990 story, Shrek!, are now available at www.SuperSummerTheatre.org.

 

Feral Tale Theatricals is no ordinary theatre company. It is a Las Vegas-based incubator of creativity with a mission to generate engaging storytelling in the Las Vegas community with a repurposing initiative and a dash of mischief. Feral Tale Theatricals cast and creative team in conjunction with Super Summer Theatre will bring to life Shrek the Musical for a limited-time engagement.

The plot revolves around Shrek, a grouchy and solitary ogre, who awakens to find his beloved swamp has been overrun by fairytale creatures who have been banished there by the fairytale-hating Lord Farquaad. When Shrek confronts Lord Farquaad and demands his land back, the two strike a deal: Lord Farquaad will return Shrek’s land, if Shrek accepts his mission to rescue Princess Fiona, who is being held against her will as she waits for her one true love.

 

As Shrek embarks on his quest with a very chatty donkey by his side, the two bond as they encounter grave dangers and colorful characters. Upon rescuing Princess Fiona, Shrek learns that she may not be who he thought she was, and that perhaps the real fairytale has just begun.

 

“The challenge is to tell a good story while tipping your hat to the iconic characters everyone knows and loves,” said Erik Ball, President and Founder of Feral Tale Theatricals and Director and Head of Theatrical Arts at Faith Lutheran High School.“This story is unique, because it’s silly, charming and engaging all at once, but at the same time, it holds a mirror up to the audience and allows us all to reflect on how our individual talents and differences make us very special indeed.” Ball encourages family members of all ages to enjoy this musical adventure.

 

This particular production includes original set and costume designs, a 23-foot long dragon puppet and surprises around every corner.

 

Performances of Shrek the Musicalcan be seen August 6-9, 13-16, 20-23 (show begins at 8:05 p.m.) at Super Summer Theatre at Spring Mountain Ranch. Tickets starting at $12.95 are available at ShowTix4U.com or at www.SuperSummerTheatre.org.
