The York Manor: Ruddigore Musical Halloween Event
Wednesday, October 24th @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$30
A one-of-a-kind musical/horror/comedy Halloween event, RuddiGORE, adapted and updated from the classic Gilbert and Sullivan supernatural operetta, to feature modern horror characters and situations, tells the twisted tale of Ruthven Murgatroyd, who masquerades as a zombie, to avoid a heinous family curse. Ruthven’s deep, dark secret that he is, in fact, ALIVE, is threatened by the arrival of his brother, sailor/werewolf Dick Dauntless, and the would-be-zombie’s crush on prom queen Rose Maybud, the fairest maiden in all of RuddiGORE. A bevy of blood-spattered bridesmaids add to the horrors and hilarity, as do various graverobbers, vampires and traumatized babysitters. Proof Doubt Closer Theatre Company revives one of its signature shows, especially for Halloween, and performed at a historic and iconic Highland Park speakeasy.
Trace Oakley and the Proof Doubt Closer Theatre Company have a hit on their hands and now the challenge is to let everyone know what a great and fun show this is. — Jose Ruiz, ReviewPlays.com, 2016.
