FORTUNE FALLS AT ALBERTA THEATRE PROJECTS – Begins October 18, 2016

In the little town of Fortune Falls, the sweet smells of caramel cremes, jellybeans and chocolate fill the hearts of all who work at the Mercey Candy Factory. But when Mr. Mercey shuts the doors, only a young security guard is left to walk the halls alone. Until one day, a new owner comes to town.

A new Canadian musical from award-winning Catalyst Theatre, creators of the hit productions Frankenstein and Nevermore – The Imaginary Life & Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe. Fortune Falls is an inventive and darkly playful story about a time and place in between what was, and what is yet to be.

Written, Composed and Directed by Jonathan Christenson. Produced by Alberta Theatre Projects. Showtimes vary, check ATP’s website for details.
