The Elephant Man marches into the PAC

By on August 24, 2019 in Events with 0 Comments

The Mission Creek Players are doing The Elephant Man during September, and promising it’s “like nothing you’ve seen before.”

It is based on the true story of Joseph “John” Merrick, a 19th Century Englishman who was afflicted with a disfiguring congenital disease. With the help of kindly Dr. Frederick Treves, Merrick attempts to regain the dignity he lost after years spent as a sideshow freak.

Merrick becomes the toast of London and charms a caring actress before his death at 27.

Matt Cadman is the director, with Tiffany Mausser playing Mrs. Kendall, Peter Kappler playing Dr. Treves and Matthew Pippen as The Elephant Man.

Performances are Sept. 12, 13 and 14 at 7:30 p.m. and Sept. 14 at 2:30 p.m. at the Numerica Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $25. Info: 663-ARTS or www.pac.com.
