There will be encore performances Saturday, Wednesday, Thursday (Halloween night) and Friday. There will also be a special encore presentation Nov. 2 from 2-5 p.m., with all proceeds going to Relay for Life. This year’s theme is Classic Horror Films.
The cast of this year’s horror show will include the Lovett family (Rick, Beverley, Michael, Cory and Lisa), the Johnson family (consisting of mother-son teams Adam and Teresa and Becky and Seth), under the writing and direction of Scott and April Pope. Young Seth Thrasher will be featured as Malachi in the Children of the Corn corn maze, according to ACT member Keela Brown.
Supporting players include Angie Walker, Raven Thacker, Brandi Irvin, John Bryan, Jordan Hallman, Jim Fannin and Dusty Cooper, and there will be cameos by Torry Burk, Strawberry Johnson, Tyler Haynes and the Chamber Young Ambassadors.
Dallas Lane will also be serving as a director in certain pivotal scenes, Brown said.
“A production of this size is not possible with a crew,” Brown said. This group includes herself and her husband, Greg, Maria Wiggins, Linda Smith, Susan Crim and Christy Blackerby.
In addition to the House of Horrors proper, there will be several other featured attractions this year. “Famed makeup artist” Amy Graham will be “turning your little monsters into our little monsters,” Brown said, as part of the primp and paint booth at Bemiston. There will also be drinks, goody bags and peanuts for sale in the lobby.
After the run is over, there will also be a special presentation of acme awards for best actor and best supporting actor, complete with trophies and a red carpet walk.
This will be the second year the Bemiston Recreation Center has become a house of horrors, and Brown said ACT is hoping to make the event even bigger next year.
“We’re hoping we can expand into the gym by then,” she said.
