Back to the Future meets 1812

The Dominion Repertory Theatre priemered its production Sparks from a Campfire (Comedy/Drama) last night at Old Fort Erie to a modest crowd.

George, who is touring historic Fort Erie is sent back in time when lightning strikes. He is sent back to 1812 and a time of War. George finds himself right in the middle of conflict and is commandeered by a dying man to deliver a message.  This involvement causes others to believe that he is a spy.


George is unsure of the path he should take. Should he deliver the message?  What is the importance of the message? Who can he trust? and what will be the outcome. With all these questions George must also figure out a way to get back to the year 2012.

The production is Written and Directed by Sharon Pollock and a cast of four: Rob Bril, Justin Bath, Katerina Georgieva and Ray Jacildo.

The outdoor production is about an hour in length and runs from July 28th to September 2, 2012

Tickets can be purchased at Old Fort Erie, 350 Lakeshore Rd, or by calling 905-871-0540. Tickets are $15.00 for adults, $7.50 for children under 12, and free for children under the age of 5.
