The Elephant Man, by Bernard Pomerance

The Elephant Man, by Bernard Pomerance, is based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. “A horribly deformed young man, victim of rare skin and bone diseases, he has become the star freak attraction in traveling side shows. Found abandoned and helpless, he is admitted to London’s prestigious Whitechapel hospital. Under the care of celebrated young physician Frederick Treves, Merrick is introduced to London society and slowly evolves from an object of pity to an urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati only to be denied his ultimate dream, to become a man like any other.”

The Encore Performing Arts Center and Gallery has been the home of the County Seat Theater Company since 2008.  This is Community Theater at its BEST!
A limited number of free event tickets are available at the following libraries: Aurora, Carlton, Cloquet, Eveleth, Gilbert, Hibbing, Moose Lake, Silver Bay and Virginia.
This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.  Tickets for this event and others are available at your local library. 
The Arrowhead Library System does a lot to make fantastic programs available to the patrons of ALS member libraries.   Please let them know how much you appreciate it when you fill out the evaluation for this fascinating production.
