Dottore Who
'Dottore Who & the Three Locks of Time' - April 24, 25, 26, 2009

Friday, Saturday, & Sunday, April 24, 25, & 26, 2009 · Nord Hall Atrium · CWRU

The Greatest Production of The Confused Greenies to date, a silly sci-fi farce parodying such cult classics as Doctor Who, Star Trek, Star Wars, Firefly and whatever else could not run away fast enough (and even some that could!). The rest, as they say, is history. Or future history. Or alternative history? Time travel is so confusing! This show also marks the troupe's first full weekend production (at CWRU), multiple venue production (at two cons, one in Cleveland and one in Columbus), and two month run!

Inspired by the preview performance at the creativity and technology conference, Notacon 6 a week earlier, the show became a combined live stage performance and audio-visual production including "Dottore Who's Secret of Sci-Fi Physics" and the recovered amateur footage from a monster attack called "Cardiff-Field"!

A rip in the Patchwork of Time & Space causes a Dottore Who convention! Sakura, Magical-Shcool-Girl Guardian of the First Lock of Time Capitano gets the Companions The Swedish Borg, Guardian of the Second Lock of Time, with Skarino, an Ex-Terminator from the Future
Skarino is a fan of the ladies Dottore's Companions Red-Shirts, the most expendable crew in the Multiverse Companion Colombina and Red-Shirt #1 Flavio in love!
The Crazy Scarf Monster Dottore Who! Green-skinned Alien Babe Colombina strikes a pose Arlecchino, the Future Savior of the Multiverse, with his cynbernetic protector, an Ex-Terminator from the Future The Three Locks of Time, reverted to their true forms!
Photography by Ed Rynes, Lauren Chaikin, Jia Doughman, Marshall Hughes, and Jess Rudolph.

Dottore Who has received a warning from his future self that the fate of the Multiverse is in peril! And somehow only Dottore's companion, the hapless harlequin Arlecchino can save it! Can Dottore find the Three Locks of Time to fulfill Arlecchino's destiny? Will Starship Capitano James T. Testosteroné thwart him just to prove he's the only protector this Multiverse needs? Will the Imperial Zanni-Troopers of the Galactic Generic Overlordly Persons ever actually hit a target? And can companion Colombina keep her dearest love Flavio from his sudden but inevitable death as a Red-Shirt? Only the Patchwork of Time & Space & Foolery will tell!
