About the Production
Based on Jules Verne’s landmark works of science fiction, this adaptation by David Kersnar and Althos Low reveals the true history of Professor Morgan Aronnax’s adventures as a prisoner of Captain Nemo, master of the submersible war machine, Nautilus. The play chronicles the interwoven histories of Aronnax and Nemo—their clashes of will confronting monsters without and within—as they voyage beneath the world’s oceans to the unclaimed tundra of the South Pole. Join us for this action-packed nautical adventure!
Open monologue auditions are Tuesday, September 5, 6:30 to 9:30 pm (by appointment only).
