Theater With A Mission

One of the things that we have always felt strongly in as a theater company is to have theater that also has a mission.   In the past that has meant performing for terminally ill children, giving to free HIV testing and talk backs about bullying.
ElephantMan_FBEvent
Most recently Baggy Pants Theater and Greater Orlando Actors Theatre joined forces to present The Elephant Man.   Money was earmarked at performances for specific organizations from our ticket sales.   We are proud to announce that Baggy Pants Theater and G.O.A.T. raised over $1000.00 that will be distributed to: The Coalition of the Homeless,  Hope Helps, Diebel Legacy Fund and the ALS Association.   Thank you for supporting these amazing organization and our show.

What they Are Saying About the Elephant Man

ElephantMan_FBEvent
Elephant Man  Paul Jason Marion“In the lead role, Paul Castaneda admirably doesn’t condescend to his character’s limitations but shows us the man within. There’s an innocence to his face that lets the audience see him absorb the strictures of Victorian society from those around him — but question them, too.” ~Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel

“What anchors this production, and makes it worth watching to the end, is the impressively invested performance by Paul Castaneda, who embodies Merrick’s tortured physiology through posture, facial expression and expressive breathing, rather than prosthetic makeup.” ~Seth Kubersky, Orlando Weekly

“Saw it last night. Jason Skinner, my friend, as Dr. Frederick Treves; just amazing performance! Major kudos to the rest of the cast. I’m not FB friends with all of you but you were wonderful!” Don’t miss it!”
~C G Moore, audience member

“Paul Castaneda you are John Merrick. You left me in awe. Jason Skinner you continue to amaze me.”
~G C Sicoli, audience member

“Awesome show tonight!!! It’s a must see……”
~K M Bridges, audience member

elephant man paul and jason“Last night I had the opportunity to watch an interpretation of the “The Elephant Man” produced by Greater Orlando Actors Theater and Baggy Pants Theater. I cannot give this performance higher praise!
Actor Paul Castaneda portrayed John Merrick so powerfully, there was not a dry eye in the house. He didn’t hide behind make-up or prosthetics but instead morphed his body and voice to great effect.”
~P. Diebel, audience member

“Absolutely stellar performance!!! I rate it a 10/10. GO TO THIS SHOW! I cannot possibly give it justice – a true “must see” if you live anywhere near Orlando.”
~C Shaffer, audience member

“Castaneda’s Merrick, a man imprisoned inside his own body, is most alive during moments of connection with Treves (Jason Skinner) and Kendal (Marion C. Marsh).”
~Seth Kubersky, Orlando Weekly

IMG_2246x“Marion C. Marsh, as the actress, is warmhearted without being gooey. She intriguingly blends Mrs. Kendall’s sympathetic nature with intellectual curiosity and a hint of subversiveness.”
~Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel
