'Psycho Beach Party' offers funny relief to winter blahs
January 23, 2007
The Wake Forest University Theatre will present Charles Busch’s comedy spoof “Psycho Beach Party” as its next production. Performances will be held at the MainStage Theatre in Scales Fine Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 16-17 and 21-24 and at 2 p.m. Feb. 25.
“Psycho Beach Party” is a campy, energetic spoof of 1960s beach movies. Set in 1962, it traces the adventures of wannabe surfer Clicklet Forrest, her geeky Sartre-loving pal Berdine, and a mysterious series of attacks on the dudes and dolls of Malibu Beach.
Cindy Gendrich, associate professor of theatre, will direct the production. The cast includes Wake Forest students Chris Hayes, Dowd Keith, Alex Ewen, Stowe Nelson, Stephany Rayburn, Erich Jones, Mike Casby, Laura Halsey, Laura Lutkefedder, Eric Pearce, Jackie Phillips, Lauren Gaston, Stephanie Glagola, Mary-Hollis Williams, Tom Badger and Adam Humenansky.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $5 for students, and are available at the Theatre Box Office or by calling (336) 758-5295. The box office is open weekdays, noon - 5 p.m. For more information, visit www.wfu.edu/theatre.
