The World Premiere of
A Rock-n-Roll Concert; A Final Transmission

After two-years of development in residency at The Theatre Centre, Kitchenband is proud to present BOBLO, a theatre and concert experience that explores the evanescent nature of memory, November 22 – December 2, 2012, at The Great Hall Black Box Theatre (former home of The Theatre Centre).
BOBLO is inspired by personal memories and collected stories about Boblo Island Amusement Park, located on an island in the middle of the Detroit River, which operated from 1898-1993. Kitchenband, a collective of theatre creators and musicians, pays a stirring tribute to Boblo, riding the Boblo-Boat ferry one final time to relive the excitement and the danger the theme park once offered. Field recordings, songs, radio waves, family photos, souvenirs and keepsakes fuel this ghost-story-meets-rock-concert celebration of a former childhood destination that now lies in ruins.
BOBLO is created by Erin Brandenburg (Petrichor, Reesor, and Pelee) and Andrew Penner (The Sunparlour Players), directed by Steve McCarthy (The ElastoCitizens, Bliss) and features the talents of radio producer and sound artist Andrew O’Connor, lighting designer Rebecca Picherack (The Golden Dragon, Ruined), multi-media visual artist Elysha Poirier (Seeds) and set and costume designer Jung-Hye Kim (Middle Place, If We Were Birds). The stellar cast of performers and musicians inlcudes Anna Atkinson, Gordon Bolan, George Meanwell, Trent Pardy, Alan Penner, Andrew Penner, Amy Rutherford and Sophia Walker.
The Theatre Centre nurtures artists, invests in ideas, and champions new work and new ways of working. The Theatre Centre provides artists with  an infrastructure and resources to create their art – from an idea to a production.
