Blunder­land

8pm MARCH 3 • 4 • 10
2pm MARCH 11

WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY Rufus Cadigan

Blunderland is the true story of Rockford’s Bill Carlson (1934-2012) who was an Episcopal Deacon by day and a beautiful drag performer by night. One of Rockford’s most fascinating characters, Bill Carlson performed as "Miss Seaway Rose" at The Office Niteclub and became an ordained Episcopal minister working for St. Chad’s Church in Loves Park.

Bill Carlson/Miss Seaway Rose will be played by Andrew Harth, last seen at The WSSR as Emory in MilkMilkLemonade.

This hilarious one-person comedy has  improvisation and audience participation, but also portrays the struggle of LGBT people to find acceptance at church.

Blunderland will be performed at The Center For Arts And Spirituality, 920 Third Avenue in Rockford.
