Classic tale of Robinson Crusoe for Family Day

by Adrienne Tait JERRY FORD 2018

The Town of Edson brought Axis Theatre's
Robinson Crusoe and Friday to the Red Brick January 8 & 22
Theatre on Saturday.
“AXIS performed for the schools last year and as
they were already in town I was able to book them
for Family Day Weekend. I saw they were
presenting Robinson Crusoe (+ Friday) and I February 5, 19
thought it was a great opportunity to bring a fun
show for families to watch together. I got great
feedback from those who did attend, so it was
definitely worth it having them out this year!” said March 5, 19
Town of Edson recreation and culture programmer
Ali Broda.
The family friendly play featured ship wrecked
British sailor Robinson Crusoe and his life stranded April 2, 16, 30
on an island as he waited to be rescued. After
many years Crusoe is joined on the island by
“Friday” when he rescues her from pirates and they
soon became friends. The play is an adaptation of May 14, 28
the Daniel Defoe classic tale.
Axis Theatre is well known for producing high
quality plays. Unfortunately, the long weekend
performance did not draw the crowd the Town was June 11, 25
hoping for, selling approximately half the tickets.
Broda said this is likely the last Family Day long
weekend play for a few years while the town re-
evaluates what families may be interested in July 9, 23
“The play is amazing quality and AXIS Theatre
always provides a wonderful show, so it's too bad
we didn't get more people out to watch the August 6, 20
performance. We sold half the theatre, which is fine
for a long-weekend. Next year we will be doing a Sarah Roa as Friday and William Ford Hopkins as Robinson Crusoe rescue a “captain,” played
