Theatre KAPOW, founded by a group of Saint Anselm alumni, will perform Alone: Selected Works of Edgar Allen Poe on Tuesday, October 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the Dana Center. The event is free and open to the general public.
Alone, an adaptation on the works of Edgar Allen Poe, was written and revised by founding member Brian Kennedy, of the class of 1999, who stars in the title role, and will include such works as The Tell-Tale Heart, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Cask of Amontillado, The Raven, and Annabel Lee.
Matthew Cahoon, of the class of 1999 directs the production and the cast also features Anselmians Brian Kelly '09, and Jane Hogan '11, as well as New Hampshire actors Joel Breen and Kate Harper.
Theatre Kapow, also known as tKAPOW, was founded in the summer of 2008 by four alumni, Carey (Winslow) Cahoon '98, Matthew Cahoon '99, Brian Kennedy '99, and Rachel Follien '02.
(Winslow) Cahoon returns each season to direct the Saint Anselm Abbey Players as well as design and build the sets for their productions. Most recently, Carey helped with the spring 2009 Seussical production. Matthew Cahoon, the president of Theatre Kapow, serves as the Technical Director for the Abbey Players.
"Theatre KAPOW explores the truths of human experience through the passion and electricity of live theatre performed to the highest standards of excellence. TKAPOW produces the best dramatic works from across all ages and cultures to inspire and challenge both artists and audience," says (Winslow) Cahoon.
Through this production, Theatre KAPOW joins in the English department's year-long celebration of writer Edgar Allan Poe's 200th birthday.
