This summer the Curtain company is exploring great European theatrical traditions beyond Shakespeare. King Stag is Carlo Gozzi's fairytale masterpiece featuring comic servants, princes and princesses, magicians and magical animals, brought to the stage with masks, puppets and the performance tradition of the commedia dell'arte. The action follows mismatched lovers, body-snatching villains and one very magical parrot from the palace of the mythical kingdom of Serrendipo to the mystical forest of Roncislappe. Will truth triumph? What will be the cost, when true love faces off with wicked magic and corrupt politics?

The Curtain Theatre Company and Marin Onstage are pleased to announce they will be co-producing Bob Calton's high energy musical Return to the Forbidden Planet. The show features 1950s and 1960s rock and roll classics and a campy sci-fi setting based on Shakespeare's The Tempest and the 1950s science fiction film Forbidden Planet (which itself drew its plot loosely from The Tempest).
