It’s A Scream, by David DeBoy, is a “Horror-bly Funny Comedy” with a plot right out of the 1930’s and 1940’s movie library.
The play is set in the 1950’s at a time when the old Hollywood studio system is falling apart and the new TV industry threatens the box office. Young studio head Spencer Pierce has inherited his father’s film studio and pays a call at a gothic mansion to lower the boom on Alexander Moreau, his top actor’s career.
It’s A Scream is the perfect show the whole family can enjoy. It will run for nine shows over three weekends at the Rose History Auditorium and just in time for the Halloween season.
The cast includes:
Kip Jones as aging horror film star, Alexander Moreau
Barry Anderson as movie studio producer, Spencer Pierce
Judy Daye as Moreau’s mysterious housekeeper, Maria Yocknestor.
Don Manley as Maxie, Pierce’s middle-aged chauffer
Angella Anderson as “wanna be” actress, Elizabeth “Lizzie” Borden
