Stark Turn Players’ annual Halloween Horror Musical Parody is based on the 1982 film, Poltergeist.
Audiences have come to expect the Players’ irreverent parodies of favorite horror films, set to music to celebrate the Halloween season. This year’s show is no exception: Mom spends her time playing Farmville and Minecraft on her smart phone, Dad just wants to watch Honey Boo-Boo on TV and can’t figure out how his little girl gut sucked into a flat screen TV, and little brother Dobby is a paranoid schizophrenic, certain that it’s really the illuminati or men in black that have kidnapped her. Then there is Leslie, the over-the-top, totally androgynous, and completely lecherous exorcist called upon to help rid the house of the evil spirits.
The original script is by Jacqueline Frid and Sarah Stark with original music and lyrics composed by Julia Yob. Sarah Stark directs with Julia Yob as Musical Director and Antonio Copeland as choreographer.
The cast includes: Beth Schaub and Eric Orive as the Mom and Dad; Julia Steudle and Kassandra Dill as their children, Carly Anne and Dobby; with Anessa Johnson as Dr. Letch, the paranormal specialist and Ian Brown as the outlandish Leslie.
Shows Thursday at 8pm, Friday at 8pm and Midnight, Saturday 8pm with a costume party and a Sunday matinee at 3:00 pm.
$14/adults and $8 students and seniors.
