Dancing Monkey is pleased to present the third installment of Le Salon des Refusés, a staged reading of ridiculous plays and screenplays by Mike Czuba. This time out we present SHANIQUA and the SPACE QUEEN. A lost gem from the early 2000’s and missed opportunity for production companies everywhere!! But it’s not too late as no script ever truly dies.
January 30th, 2019 – 8pm at KOI – 1011, 1st Street, SW, Calgary.
Performed by the Dancing Monkey Players: Michelle Brandenburg, Lonni Olson, Constantine X. Anastasakis, Filsan Dualeh, Wil Knoll and Melissa Tuplin (Contracts still in negotiations).
The event is FREE! Bring your thirst, have a little food, and dig in those couches, sofas or chesterfields for some loose change – We’ll be passing the hat at the end.
Shaniqua Johnson is the lead actor in the most popular TV show on the planet. The Space Queen. A cross between the original Star Trek and Baywatch. And she hates it.
But then, a rabid and obsessed fan has kidnapped her. Convinced they were meant to be together, he keeps her prisoner, locked in a soundproof apartment for his own sick satisfaction.
Shaniqua has visions of the Space Queen telling her to be strong. She soon realizes that the only chance she has to save herself is to make peace with her screen persona. To survive, Shaniqua must become what she hates, the Space Queen.
