The Stark Turn Players, a newly-formed non-profit theatre group in Grand Rapids, will present its annual Halloween horror parody Prom Night – The Musical at the Dog Story Theater, October 26-31, 2011. Based on the 1980 film Prom Night, by William Grey, the musical parody features original songs by Joel L. Schindlbeck.
In 1974, three children played a dangerous game of tag, ending up with the death of a little girl, Elizabeth Bacon. The three swore they’d never tell, but someone saw. Six years later, as the school prepares for the prom, those three homicidal children start receiving creepy phone calls and suspicions arise. As the big night approaches, the three start dying off, one by one. For everyone at Grover Cleveland High School, it becomes a prom night that no one will ever forget.
Performance dates are October 26 -31 with curtain at 8:00 pm. Wednesday, October 26 tickets are half off! There will also be special midnight showings on October 28 & 29 and a Costume Contest and party with refreshments, prizes and dancing on Halloween night, October 31 at 8:00 pm.
