Scorpio Theatre’s Moby Dick opens this Friday, May 31 – a riveting story about one man’s relentless obsession with the white whale, revenge and the ramifications it has on all the crew! You may be familiar with the story, but the Director, Ted Lach, has taken a unique turn to the tale with an all-female cast performing multiple roles, bringing a female perspective into the characters, their motives and actions. As the final show in Scorpio’s 2018/2019 season, it is sure to raise some discussion around obsession and the consequences of actions!
Three small words will transport you into a literary classic, filled with both the perils of nature and the dangers of obsession. Three small words will ignite the story of one man’s relentless and unbending quest for revenge. Three small words will show you all that most maddens and an torments and breaks the mind of this one man, and destroys the lives of those who would follow him into the deep. Three small words. “Call me Ishmael”

About Scorpio Theatre: Scorpio Theatre is a volunteer, non-profit community theatre group devoted to showcasing new works from the fringe of the dramatic world. While Scorpio initially specialized in original comedies, our mandate has grown to include all manner of plays that are new to Calgary audiences, with a focus on local playwrights. Our goal is to create conversation and elicit two-way dialogue with our audience – love or hate it, we want you to walk away feeling impacted and thinking about the show. Scorpio presents a night at the theatre unlike anything else in the city.
Scorpio is dedicated to providing members of the Calgary theatrical community with an opportunity to grow as artists and individuals within a supportive society. We pride ourselves on treating our members with the respect they deserve, while allowing creative freedom to explore and develop. Scorpio takes care of its members, and strives to build strong relationships with and support other community theatre groups.
