~"An irresistible blend of unlikely influences - Comic Books, Gilbert & Sullivan, and Rock Musicals." ~Tom Strini
Fortuna is back in all its primary-colored glory, fully restored and digitally re-mastered. (We also laundered all the costumes.) Filled with witty rhymes and catchy tunes by Jason Powell, Fortuna is a delightful night of theatre, whether you're seeing it for the first time or as a returning fan. Featuring the all-star cast Milwaukee Examiner called an "intrepid troupe of highly-talented singer-dancer-actor-comedians."
In the town of Anyville, crime is no longer a problem - having been wiped out by its resident superhero, the time-bending Fortuna. But then...! Sweeping in from across the Atlantic to fill this power vacuum comes the Headmaster, a criminal mastermind as brilliant as he is British. Our hero is forced to recruit an ally from amongst Anyville's everyday, ordinary citizenry in order to even the odds against her new nemesis...before a reign of terror is brought down upon the town, courtesy of the evil Headmaster and his SCHOOLGIRLS OF DOOM...!
