Derek Wall as Arthur Dent rushing to stop the bulldozers destroying his house in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

This is Twisted Theatre is proud to announce its debut season, starting with Episode 1 of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Dec. 28 and 29 in the historic courtroom at the Maritime Museum of B.C. in Bastion Square.

Starring Derek Wall, Steve Barker, Graham Croft, Richard Gauthier, Justin Carter and Jess McLeod, and directed by Rod Peter Jr. and Theodore Sherman, the setting will be as much a character in Twisted’s debut as the cast. Take a ride on the elegant 19th-century, bird-cage elevator (voted number two elevator ride in the world by National Geographic) to the former courtroom of Chief Justice Matthew Baille Begbie, also known as the “Hanging Judge”, and stay for what is sure to be an engaging show by some of the city’s most talented, up-and-coming performers.

Episode 1, Fri. and Sat., Dec. 28 and 29 at 8pm. Episode 2 is Feb. 1 and 2. Tickets are $20 per show, or $35 for two at 250-385-4222. M
