Gloucester Stage: My Station in Life

October 12 - October 28
Gloucester Stage Company, 267 East Main Street
Gloucester, Massachusetts 01930
+ Google Map

Gloucester Stage presents the world-premiere performance of Ken Riaf's My Station in Life featuring Ken Baltin as local legend Simon Geller. From the rubble of his studio dungeon, Geller, the last standing single-handed radio operator in the country, broadcasts commercial free classical music from Gloucester – the town that loves and endures his peculiar presence. A recluse who speaks to thousands daily while sawing off the limb he’s out on. Building on the standing-room-only response to our 2017 NeverDark showing, Gloucester Stage presents a full production of My Station in Life. This local lore legend comes to life through Ken Baltin with direction by Robert Walsh – My Station in Life running now through 28th at Gloucester Stage. Performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30pm and Saturday and Sunday at 2:00pm.

House guests that were invited to visit during October were never quite sure what Hammond had in store for them, especially after the sun set, and the candles were lit. 2018 marks Hammond Castle's 30th year of hosting six evenings of Halloween haunts…
