The big program of the Fantasy Faire may be over, but at Ambigula, we still keep the entertainment going this week. Today, Monday May 4th we offer 2 very different shows.
We start our day with another one of Alchemelics shows at 11 am. If you have missed the previous 2 shows, this will be a treat for you. With original art and music, composed by d-oo-b himself, this is a show like nothing you have seen before and well worth a break in your wanders around the faire.
At 3 pm, we have a completely different sort of show. The Misfit Dance & Performance Art will present their show “Misfit Follies – FF 2020”. A usually fast paced and quirky, full of dancing dinkines and very family friendly, this show speaks to a special part of your senses.
You can find both these shows at Ambigulas water stage. Enjoy!
If you were benighted, bothered, and/or befuddled by the grid failures that disrupted this Fantasy Faire Radio/Seanchai Library co-production when it aired back in October, here’s a great opportunity for you! We know that there are those who missed it that wanted to hear it, and more specifically who wanted to be there in Second Life to experience it live. This Sunday, December 29th, you can have your wish!
Seanchai Library is hosting an encore performance of Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde at The Dickens Project on Sunday, December 29th at 2pm Pacific Time. You are invited to join us and cheer for Gabriel John Utterson as he pursues the mysteries plaguing his friend Dr Henry Jekyll, and be prepared to snarl back at Edward Hyde in equal measure. Or tune in to Fantasy Faire Radio.
The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde on Fantasy Faire Radio
Welcome to December! Before you know it, it will be time for another Fantasy Faire. It won’t be too long before Fantasy Faire Radio (FFR) will be switching its focus to preparing for those weeks in late Spring that unite us in a common purpose.
There are still a couple of months, and FFR still has a few off-season tricks up its collective sleeves. This month we’ll be visiting The Dickens Project in SL, a winter holiday tradition produced by FFR sponsor, Seanchai Library.
“Dickens? Fantasy?,” you say. “Bah, Humbug!,” we say. A Christmas Carol has much that is fantastical: supernatural phenomena, time travel, magical flight, ghosts! Dickens could have hardly made it more of a fantasy if he’d thrown in a pack of caroling lycans decked out in garlands of mistletoe.
“I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little book to raise the Ghost of an Idea which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their house pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it.”
~ from the Preface to A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens
Thank you for tuning in and spreading the word about Fantasy Faire Radio. In spite of the slings and arrows of outrageous grid instabilities, we are very proud of the rebroadcasts of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein”, and the live broadcast of Robert Louis Stevenson’s “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde.” Special thanks goes to CeeJay Writer and Seanchai Library for hosting listening parties for the October 19th and 20th events.
The novella, by Robert Louis Stevenson, was adapted for radio and live performance in seven voices by Caledonia Skytower and David Abbot.
CORWYN ALLEN: Gabriel John Utterson
Utterson is a lawyer and close loyal friend of Jekyll and Lanyon for many years, as far back as University. He is a measured and at all times emotionless, bachelor – who nonetheless seems believable, trustworthy, tolerant of the faults of others, and indeed genuinely likable. He does not partake in gossip or other views of the upper class out of respect for his fellow man.
ELRIK MERLIN: Narration / Inspector Newcomen / & Richard Enfield.
Enfield is Utterson’s cousin and is a well known “man about town.” He first sees Hyde at about three in the morning in an episode that is well documented as Hyde is running over a little girl. He is the person who mentions to Utterson the actual personality of Jekyll’s friend, Hyde. He says that Hyde is disgusting looking but finds himself stumped when asked to describe the man. Newcomen is a police inspector.
DA5ID ABBOT & KAYDEN OCONNELL: Dr Henry Jekyll & Mr Edward Hyde:
Jekyll is a “large, well-made, smooth-faced man of fifty with something of a slyish cast”. He has spent a great part of his life trying to repress evil urges that were not fitting for a man of his stature. He creates a serum, or potion, in an attempt to separate this hidden evil from his personality. In doing so, Jekyll transformed into the smaller, younger, cruel, remorseless, evil Hyde. Jekyll has many friends and an amiable personality, but as Hyde, he becomes mysterious and violent. Jekyll remains the natural composite of his good and ill natures. Hyde is entirely evil.
