Weird City Theatre Company Announces World Premiere

Giants in Those Days

AUSTIN—Weird City Theatre Company announces the world premiere of Giants in Those Days, an original graphic novel to stage adaptation by local writer, Sean McGrath.  Heroes and villains of the muscle-y spandex-clad kind have been all but expunged from the world by the godly decree of Jason December, but one man remembers the Heroes of the Superior Union – shining beacons of everything mankind could become – and their stand against the evil of The Karnivale. Alone, he attempts to resurrect hope and decency and light in a new generation of heroes. But victory isn’t guaranteed for the good guys…   Directed by Patti Neff-Tiven, the cast includes WCT Artistic Director John F. Carroll, Company members Kevin Gouldthorpe, Bethany Harbaugh, Nick Orzech, Jenni Bauer and Russell Minton and features Jennifer Baldillez,  Chris Romani, Braden Hunt, Daniel Moore, Paul Camp, Austin Davison, Terri Lynne Hudson, LeRoy Beck, Ronis Alvarenga & Xaq Webb.  This multi-media piece includes film, puppetry and panels from the original comic book.  Featuring original art by Benjamin Ruth, Nockiman, William o. Tyler, Michael Troy, Joe Palmer, Ren Burke and Sean S. Martin.

Performances run July 8 – July 25, 2010 at the Dougherty Arts Center, 1110 Barton Springs Road, Austin, TX.  Performances are Thursday through Saturday nights at 8:00PM and Sundays at 5:00PM.

Tickets are $15.00 for adults and $12.00 for children, seniors and students (with ID), and group rates are available. Tickets can be purchased at our website,, or by calling 512.745.2636.

Weird City Theatre’s mission is to encourage the growth of the artist and represent the uniqueness and vitality of Austin through re-envisioned classics and original works.  Keeping a child-like sense of play, we focus on the process of the actor and we are playing our part to keep Austin weird!

Weird City Theatre is a sponsored project of Austin Circle of Theatres, a nonprofit performing arts service organization.
