I posted about Larry Dye “The Creation Guy” and his Creation Discovery Centre in Bow Island Alberta a few weeks ago as the third in my Know Yer Nuts series on Canadian anti-educationalism outfits. I noticed on his website that he said he had some training in the dramatic arts and wrote a few plays, but he didn’t give much information so I never passed it on. Well, one of his productions is apparently scheduled for well off Broadway release in November!
What does Neanderthal Man, Egyptian Queen Tiaa, and Pocahontas have in common? They all want to escape from the museum that houses lies. Will George, the museum worker, cooperate with their plan to reveal the truth about them and other exhibits? Will Phaoraoh prevent their escape?
The play runs Nov. 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, with 2 Saturday matinees. Tickets are $10.00 and are not available at the usual outlets.
Now, I’m not much of an art critic, but it is nice to see that someone with training at the Citadel Theatre isn’t about to write derivative works! Completely original, is Night at the Museum! As the site says, Larry offers his audiences a ”unique blend of creativity and humour, using scripture as a foundation”. Hell, you’re paying a ten-spot to go. You don’t expect anything less than that! Some of Larry’s other plays: Catastrophic Park and Storm Chaser.
I couldn’t find a list of the cast. Larry’s Genesis Theatre group should not be confused with the troupe of the same name in Ireland that worked with Roger Waters on a stage production of Pink Floyd’s The Wall.
So, who could be in Night at the Museum, escape from the mythonian?
Who would play Egyptian Queen Tiaa? What about the evil Pharoah?
Perhaps the Nelsons of Creation Truth Ministries of Red Deer (Know Yer Nuts #1).

George? Hmmm, perhaps John Mackay, the screwball the Nelsons thought I should debate.
Mackay would be a good security guard.
He’s already used to wearing hats.
And as for Pocahontas? Who do we know from the creationists circles in Alberta who could be a convincing little girl? Would Harry Nibourg from the Big Valley Creation Science Museum fit the bill?
See a sample of Nibourg’s audition here.
And of course, any Night at the Museum play needs a freaking T.Rex! C’mon, Larry, where is the T. Rex?
SO LETS HAVE SOME MUSIC! THE MISSING T. REX!
~~~~~~~~ On a related note~~~~~~~~
They are also running Home Schooling Creation Museum Tour in a few days (Oct. 8), and as far as I’m concerned that is damn despicable. Texts used for real schools have to be vetted and approved. I think other educational materials etc. should also be vetted by the relevant educational authorities before they are allowed to be marketed to schools, whether those schools are proper ones with trained teachers or home schools with uneducated parents making sure the kids are insulated from the real world.
That was an editorial, by the way…
