The Elephant ManThe Elephant Man is based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man, who has been a freak attraction in traveling side shows, is found abandoned and helpless and is admitted for observation to Whitechapel, a prestigious London hospital. Under the care of a famous young doctor, who educates him and introduces him to London society, Merrick changes from a sensational object of pity to the urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati. But his belief that he can become a man like any other is a dream never to be realized.

While a number of his plays have been produced in London, The Elephant Man is his first major American production.

We have a lot of fun doing this twice a year as a benefit for Curtain Call Theatre, your all-volunteer local theater company.

It’s a win-win. So come along to this friendly place and enjoy a delightful time with us. Everyone is welcome. No reservations necessary.

Pass it on to everyone you think might also be interested in supporting our local theater company.
