This is seriously cool: the Parish Players of Thetford Vermont are embarking on their 4th episode of their theater series Eclipse Grange Shorts. The theme this time around is adaptations of Science Fiction stories!
Here’s the stories that will be staged:
Isaac Asimov, “The Immortal Bard”
Leslie Stone, “The Invasion of Gola”
Fredric Brown, “Knock”
Ray Bradbury, “The One Who Waits”
Eileen Gunn, “No Place To Raise Kids”
The shorts will be held on September 5th and 6th at 7:30 pm, Septembed 7th at 3:00pm, and September 12th and 13th at 7:30pm. The play will be held at the Eclipse Grange Theater in Thetford. Tickets go for $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and $10 for students. Reservations can be made at 802-785-4344.
What makes this cool is some of the authors involved: Asimov and Bradbury are largely household names, but it’s really exciting to see stories from early SF pioneers such as Leslie Stone, who doesn’t get a lot of press. It’s also really cool to see Frederic Brown and Eileen Gunn make the list. This looks like something that we’ll be heading out to see!
