You'll remember Joel from GODSPELL (as Dan Rowan) and I WAS MEANT FOR THE STAGE. He'll be in 100 SAINTS YOU SHOULD KNOW on our mainstage in late spring.
This is his creation, based on interviews and research into the stories around the Chalmers building, where Pacific Theatre and Holy Trinity Church make their home. Lots of Pacific Theatre voices in the show.
here are the basics from the CORRIDORS Facebook page. You might also want to check out Emme Rogers' fascinating blog post for more.
Inspired by the work of Neworld Theatre, this podplay re-imagines Vancouver stories from the past hundred years, setting them in a labyrinthine, century-old church building.
Comprised entirely of audio, this mostly indoor walking tour invites you to don your iPod (or the like) and 'eavesdrop' on the story of a man, his wife, another man, and a building of intersecting walkways and lives. A 'history' of fictitious proportions.
