Black Sheep Theatre Presents
An Evening of Thrills and Chills
Deborah Smola and Rob Hutter
Presented in October 2012
This year’s event features the Rochester premier of Wade Bradford's "The Vampire Monologues", a collection of soliloquy’s about a breeding ground for new vampires, running under the guise of the Morgenroth Mortuary. We'll meet Cunningham the Minion, who serves as the welcoming party for the "new bloods"; Morgenroth the ancient Vampire and part time florist; and Aria, the sixteen year old baby vamp, who shares with us her introduction to "the life".
Also featured will be the one act play "Morning Becomes Olestra" from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's "The Weird". In this story we'll meet a woman who plots her husband's death with the help of her Vampire lover. Something to really sink your teeth into!
We are also proud to perform a second, one at play by local playwright, Rob Hutter, called "Say Yes to the Death". In this spoof of the popular TLC program, we'll meet a bride looking for the perfect wedding gown, with her mother in tow.....in a bag!
You'll enjoy Dramatic readings from Bram Stoker's "Dracula"; and "the Dream" by Franz Kafka. Edgar Allan Poe himself will be stopping by to read his story "The Cask of Amontillado", and his poem, "To Helen".
The production features Dean Amsler, David Byrne, Charlie Cooper, Billy DeMetsenaere, Kristy Funderburk, Micky Markert, Diane Mashia, France McCloskey, Laura Pratt, Mary Reynolds, Rick Staropoli, and Gretchen Ginn Woodworth.
