Theatrical Third Weekend at the Hub: Working for the Mouse
What really goes on at the Happiest Place on Earth? As a young man, Trevor Allen spent a few years in Anaheim playing Pluto, the Mad Hatter, and other characters in his height range on a quest to become Peter Pan. He returns with tales of quirky co-workers, militant managers, and backstage debauchery in this unique coming-of-age tale.
Working for the Mouse blows pixie dust in your eyes while offering a hilarious glimpse behind the ears of the Magic Kingdom. Voted Best of the SF Fringe Festival, it's garnered sold-out houses and critical acclaim in Berkeley and San Francisco without once getting a cease-and-desist order from Disney.
Written and performed by Trevor Allen
Directed by Nancy Carlin
"Amusing, skillful, and contagiously warmhearted... You may not believe your ears (or Pluto's) on this unofficial guided tour behind the scenes... C is for 'See it real soon.'"
SF Bay Guardian
"Very funny... Mouse is an uplifting comic tale well told."
"Fascinating... Infectious... He's got more than a magic bag full of fun anecdotes, and the charisma of Peter Pan to pull off telling them."
"Vivid... Touching... If you've ever had a job that looked like a dream from the outside and a fevered hallucination from the inside, you'll want to see Working for the Mouse... Allen shares his Disneyland experience with warmth, style, and tremendous humor."
