Frankenstein

Next date: Oct 20, 2021 - click here for time schedule - English

One of the great horror stories of all time, Mary Shelly's classic tale of gods and monsters still fascinates two hundred years after its 1818 publication! First presented at the National Theatre in London, directed by Danny Boyle and starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Nick Dear's adaptation is highly theatrical and surprisingly relevant.

Employing striking images and beautifully poetic language, the play explores the very nature of good and evil, brought to life with thrilling and heartbreaking results.

From the Creature's first moments on stage, as he writhes naked out of an organic pod, the audience is swept into a breathtaking whirlwind of emotional storytelling through imagery and movement.

With daring and stylized staging, comes a humane, insightful retelling of the original story, focusing on the plight of the creature and his desperate journey to fit into a world that doesn't want him. A theatrical event like none other.

Clay Cartland is a South Florida native and most recently performed in Shrekand Groundhog Day with Slow Burn Theatre at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Some of his favorite performances include The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Desperate Measures, Flashdance, 1776, Peter and the Starcatcher and First Date. Clay is also a proud member of Actors Equity and a recipient of two Carbonell and four Silver Palm Awards. Clay also works as a voice-over artist and teaches improv comedy.

Alfonso Vieites is thrilled to be making his Island City Stage debut. He was last seen at The Foundry in Party!

He’s also had the pleasure of appearing as a day player on two Telemundo shows.

Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol

Next date: Dec 2, 2021 - click here for time schedule - English

'Tis the season to celebrate with a "spirited" holiday classic! Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol is, of course, spun off from Charles Dickens' beloved ghostly tale. But in this marvelous theatrical retelling, the redemption story shifts from mean, old Ebenezer Scrooge to his former business partner, the long-dead, hilariously bitter, chains-rattling ghost, Jacob Marley.

Jacob Marley's miserable afterlife has been stretching on forever when, on Christmas Eve, he earns a chance to change his fate - if he can change the unrepentant Ebenezer Scrooge! Like the desperate apparition he is, Marley drags a terrified Scrooge from his bed into his worst nightmare as the two old frenemies journey into the past, present and future. Tom Mula adapted his own novella based on the familiar story to create his now popular play. Audiences will delight in the surprising twists and turns of the storytelling, and the inspired tour de force of one actor magically transforming into 18 roles. In a production that is intimate and spectacular, Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol is spooky fun and a festive treat that makes for "a splendid and invigorating evening" (The Chicago Tribune).
