September 23, 2011

The Young People’s Theatre of St. Charles Community College will present “Coney Island of Dr. Moreau” Oct. 21-23 in the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building theater on the SCC campus.

In this frolicking musical spoof of H.G. Wells’ famous book, eccentric Dr. Moreau has been booted out of the Scientist’s Club for claiming he can turn animals into human beings. He disappears to a South Seas island where he continues his weird experiments in a jungle laboratory, but his privacy doesn’t last. An airplane crashes, stranding a trio of entertainers and some high school students. Filled with strange characters, this story is full of upbeat songs and hilarious plot twists.
