Umbrella Theater pleased to be the second theater company performing a new play by Thomas Kee, Mary's Little Monster, as the first production under Umbrella's mentorship program to encourage new theater directors and designers. Previously it was performed by the Spit & Vigor theater company in New York City and New Orleans, and will be opening Off-Broadway at the Players Theatre on May 7th.

In 1816, the year without a summer, the poet Lord Byron is joined by a circle of intimates including the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, his future wife Mary Godwin, her half-sister Claire Clairmont, and Byron's personal doctor John Polidori. During their confinement with Byron in his Swiss mansion, the their massive emotions, drug habits, and intellects collide to produce poetry, conflict, catharsis, and legendary literature.

The performance runs about 90 minutes with no intermission. Admission is free and tickets are not required, although you can reserve a space in advance through Eventbrite. (We will be adjusting the number of seats once our set design is finished, so if you are unable to reserve a space please check again after March 30th.)

2019 was a formative year for Umbrella Theater company, particularly in providing technical support in a number of ways to small theater companies.

"The Producers" at The Grand Theatre, opening May 14th, is directed by Umbrella's artistic director, Jamie Rocha Allan, and designed by Umbrella's technical director, Cara Pomeroy. Umbrella is also supporting the production by providing significant support for improving the technical aspects of the show.
