The Last Freak Show
May 17, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$12
A Melodrama with Twoo Heads. “Hey, Freaks! Let’s put on a show!” With that rally cry, a motley crew of old circus freaks set out to save the retirement home dedicated to their kind before the bank forecloses on it. “The Last Freak Show – A Melodrama With Two Heads!” is an original musical that wears its heart awkwardly outside its chest with an evening of love songs, jar babies and four-legged tap dancing. Will Gorilla Girl, Mr. Head – The Bodyless Wonder, Jay/Jayne – The Half-Man/Half-Woman and the rest of the Scooby Gang save their home from the evil banker or have to hit the road…again?
“The Last Freak Show – A Melodrama With Two Heads” is written and directed by Tom Booker, the head honcho at The Institution Theater with music written by none other than Laura Hall, the Musical Director of Drew Carey’s “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” Featuring such off-beat songs as “Step Right Up, Folks!”, “They’re Not Just A Freak, They’re A Friend!” and “A Gorilla’s Girl’s Pain”.
Featuring Stephanie Ard as Gorilla Girl; Amy Averett as Myrtle, The Four-Legged Tap Dancing Woman; Terrill Fischer as The Man With His Head Up His Ass; Adam Keys and Joseph Tran as Morty and Sol, The Fraternal Conjoined Twins (who look nothing alike); Donna Rice as Seal Girl; Mark Shoemaker as Mr. Head, The Body-less Wonder; Leanne Stott as Jay/Jayne, The Half Man/Half Woman; David Lampe as Mr. Dick, The Evil Banker; Jon Peterson as Little Dick, The Banker’s Son; and Tom Booker as Ballyhoo Bob, Ringmaster of the Freaks.
