An unforgettable audio experience created for a blindfolded audience!
Ghost River Theatre invites you to experience a brand new creation in our brand new space! The first installment of our SIX SENSES SERIES, an audio experience that needs to be heard to be believed: a new adaptation of sci-fi master Ray Bradbury's TOMORROW'S CHILD.
Bradbury's classic short story presents two new parents in an imagined future confronting the realities of their newborn son--who has been born into another dimension. Will they accept the divide between parent and child? Or find another solution?
Long-time Ghost River collaborator Matthew Waddell (electroacoustic sound designer/composer), Ghost River co-Artistic Directors Eric Rose and David van Belle and contemporary vocalist Sarah Albu are shaping an audio only adaptation, created with the blessing of the Ray Bradbury estate.
THIS AIN'T NO RADIO PLAY—we're staging the quirks of 50s sci-fi, reimagined for a purely sonic environment created with the latest in sound technology from Calgary's cutting-edge PK Sound. The result will be distinctly Ghost River: a thrilling, immersive performance experience that opens the doors of theatrical perception. It's theatre that lives inside your mind.
