"Touch Me: Songs for a (dis)Connected Age"

Touch MeTechnology has the power to bring people together like never before. People can instantly get in touch with old friends through facebook, share their thoughts in real time via twitter, and your best friend is really only ever a text message away. So, is social media a force for good or are our online lives making us more isolated than ever?

The all-star cast of "Touch Me" includes:

Three-time Betty Mitchell Award winning actor, Christian Goutsis
Calgary Critics' Award nominee, Lisa Lennox
Betty Mitchell and Calgary Critics' Award winner, Scott Shpeley
Stampede Talent Search Winner, Selina Wong

Calgary Critics' Award winner, JP Thibodeau, directs "Touch Me" while musical direction is by three-time Betty Mitchell Award winner, Joe Slabe.

This world-premiere musical played from January 29th to February 9th, 2013, at the Joyce Doolittle Theatre, at the Pumphouse. With book, music and lyrics by Joe Slabe, the production was directed and choreographed by Mark Bellamy and featured puppets designed and constructed by the amazing artists at Clunk Puppet Lab!

At the end of her life, Maria Rasputin puts on one last performance in an attempt to rehabilitate her father's infamous legacy. But will the persistent voice of his assassin ruin her plans?

"There'll be puppets and pathos,
Terror and tap dance,
Drama and drag queens,
And ruinous romance,
When Maria Rasputin Presents...!"
