CAPTAIN AURORA: A Superhero Musical

By  |  0 Comments

CaptainAuroraKaleidoscope Theatre Montreal is proud to present its sixth production, second musical and first Fringe show: Captain Aurora: A Superhero Musical, created and directed by Trevor Barrette. Set in the not-too-distant future, Captain Aurora is a high-octane show about the nightmares that come true when dreams do and the search for meaning, a search that will take our audience from the streets of Megacity to intergalactic spacecrafts and alternate dimensions!

IN THE WAKE OF AN EXTRATERRESTRIAL INVASION, HUMANITY HAS ENTERED AN AGE OF PEACE AND HARMONY LEAVING OUR SUPERHEROINE, CAPTAIN AURORA, BORED AND LONGING FOR ADVENTURE. HOWEVER, WHEN AN A’ARU WARSHIP RESURFACES, THREATENING EARTH’S NEWFOUND UNITY, IT WILL BE UP TO HER TO SAVE THE DAY… WILL SHE BE READY?

With a book influenced by comic book mythology and the summer blockbuster, music inspired by the scores of John Williams and Bernard Herrmann, a broad and vibrant costume and set design, Captain Aurora will bring the epic world of superheroes to the stage!

Founded by Trevor Barrette in 2011, Kaleidoscope Theatre Montreal seeks to work with emerging and young professional artists to produce classical pieces and original works with a focus on dynamic storytelling and design. Their current production seeks to engage with the tropes and narratives of superhero fiction and to explore the representation of women in popular culture. Barrette says, “People are happy to suspend their disbelief for post-apocalyptic futures, extraterrestrial warfare and superheroes, but I often find that they are surprised to learn that Captain Aurora is a woman. That’s why we are presenting this now. To have that conversation.”

Featuring a 12-person cast, 10 all-new songs and a 3-piece band!
