2013 The Crazy Mixed-up Island of Dr. Moreau

The Crazy Mixed Up Island of Dr Moreau
This post is not about virtual worlds.  At least not about those newfangled things that run through the internet pipes.  The connection to the new virtual worlds on the internet is something I expect in the future.  We do lots of stage plays and theater in Second Life.
This post is about a stage play.  A local production in The Vantage at Cityview.    That's the retirement facility where I live.

Yes, I really am 82. And I do see a long-range connection between the virtual worlds of the internet and the virtual worlds of local/community theater.  What we do in Second Life, for example, is much like community theater, except in a different kind of community.  And we get there to participate with no limitations from disabilities or age.  The situation is very compatible with the activity needs of a retirement center.    
The cast (pictured above) is made up of residents of  the Vantage, as was most of the audience at the premier on August 19, 2011.  The play was directed and produced by Cholly Gordon, Program Supervisor.
The play is a comedy derived from The Island of Doctor Moreau, an 1896 science fiction novel written by H. G. Wells.  
The play script was obtained from Baker's Plays:
