SUNDAY, May 27th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME on the African Queen,...and More!
Join us for a Special Holiday Weekend Event ...
@ 1:30pm: TEA TIME on The African Queen Corwyn, Kayden, and Cale live in voice in Ceiliúradh Glenon Holly Kai as they present the Lux Radio Theater script of The African Queen, based on C.S. Forrester's novel and the 1951 motion picture.
The story opens in August/September 1914. Rose Sayer, a
33-year-old Englishwoman, is the companion and housekeeper of her brother
Samuel, an Anglican missionary in German-colonized Tanganyika
World War I has recently begun, and the German military commander of the area
has conscripted all the natives; the village is deserted, and only Rose and her
dying brother remain. Samuel dies during the night and Rose is alone. That day,
another man arrives at the village: this is a Cockney named Allnutt, who is the
mechanic and skipper of the African Queen, a steam-powered launch, owned by a
Belgian mining corporation, that plies the upper reaches of the UlangaRiver.
Allnutt's two-man crew has deserted him at the rumors of war and conscription.
Allnutt buries Samuel Sayer and takes Rose back to the African Queen, where
they consider what they should do.
@ 2:30pm Jungle Boogie
DJ Dano Bookmite spins tunes from 1951-53, and some special selections with a jungle beat. Put on your dancing shoes (or take them off!) in Ceiliúradh Glenfor a wild time, and some great fun.
