The House on Haunted Hill
by Weird City Theatre
Oct. 08 - Oct. 24, 2015
Weird City Theatre Company announces a world premiere stage production of HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL, adapted from director William Castle's 1959 Vincent Price thriller. A nurse will be on hand each night to care for those who faint from terror and guests are encouraged to sign up for life insurance in case they die of fright!
The party begins when eccentric millionaire Frederick Loren brings together 5 strangers with the promise of $10,000 if they stay the night in his haunted house, but soon these skeptics are all trapped with ghosts and a very real murderer in the House on Haunted Hill. This chill-filled production, adapted by WCT company member Robert L. Berry, combines elements of Castle's films and his frightening gimmicks. House on Haunted Hill marks Weird City Theatre's own resurrection after a three year hiatus.
Directed by company member Jenni Bauer, the cast includes Mackenzy Cade as Lance Schroeder, Nene Clayton-Jones as Ruth Bridges, Saige Hilton as Mrs. Slydes, Davon Johnson as Mr. Slydes, Craig Kanne as Watson Pritchard, Kelsey Mazak as Nora Manning, Ian Prikryl as Frederick Loren, David Theis as Dr. David Trent and WCT company member Chris Romani as Annabelle Loren.
Weird City Theatre's mission is to encourage the growth of the artist and represent the uniqueness and vitality of Austin through re-envisioned classics and original works. Keeping a child-like sense of play, we focus on the process of the actor and we are playing our part to keep Austin weird!
