Let’s do the Time Warp again! Richard O'Brien's cult favorite, "The Rocky Horror Show," Springfield Contemporary Theatre’s top-selling show, is back--as if for the first time—in a production directed by Nathan Shelton at SCT Center Stage in Wilhoit Plaza.

Springfield Contemporary Theatre at SCT Center Stage in Wilhoit Plaza presents "Accidental Death of an Anarchist" June 30-July 16. A bank gets bombed, a suspect dies in custody, and the police inquiry turns into... a masterpiece of comedy? Dario Fo's political farce, "Accidental Death of an Anarchist," was inspired by a true incident: an imposter labeled “The Maniac” impersonates a judge who has multiple guilty defendants on his hands, causing constant chaos in a police station.

"It's very exciting--and hilarious.  Hopefully. When we get an audience in there we will see!" laughs Equity actor Nathan Shelton. "It's hilarious without an audience," Rick Dines assures him. Dines is Springfield Contemporary Theatre's Managing Artistic Director, and he is directing Nathan in the third part of the 2016 SCT Solo Play Festival at Center Stage in Wilhoit Plaza: Joe Mantello's stage adaptation of the humorous essay by David Sedaris, The Santaland Diaries.

Shadow Bound

The movie, Shadow Bound, which will premiere tomorrow night (10/31) in Springfield, is the film version of the internationally award-winning web series of the same name.  Nathan Shelton is the film's creator and executive producer.

"And it's a silent horror/lovecraftian web series that's set in the 1920's--late 1920's/early 1930's," he said.
