Fringe: Frank Nickel "Caught In The Act!"

We've got some new folks at Pacific Theatre this fall, one of whom is Frank Nickel. He's our new production manager, also tackling whatever other areas he darn well feels like. He'll be producing our SIDE SHOW: NIGHT AT THE IMPROV, working with Dan Amos on financial management, helping our computers stay healthy and all kinds of good stuff.

Fact is, the boy's also an actor! An SFU grad and founding member of Genus Theatre. Who happen to have a wild and wacky show (utterly without redeeming social value, I'm hoping) in The Fringe.

Here's their data. Check it out!


Genus Proudly Presents our Fringe Festival debut...

Have you ever...

Been the victim of a particularly embarrassing restaurant birthday song?

Had to talk your way out of getting arrested?

Been brutally snubbed by a yuppy hostess at a dinner party?

Witnessed a horrible accident and just had to stay and see how it all
turned out?

If so, this is the show for you!

Genus Theatre Company invites its faithful following to enjoy the
spectacle as it looses its Fringe Fest virginity with its fifth
original production. Caught in the Act explores the lurking
exhibitionist in us all. It is an examination and celebration of all
those moments where theatre and the pedestrian collide. Some of us
will do whatever it takes to get noticed. Caught in the Act presents
a sometimes hilarious, often uncomfortable voyeuristic glimpse in the
mirror. Be sure to catch this showcase of all of life's long running,
never billed, but always entertaining performances.
