Get into the Halloween spirit this month with Stage 43, a Coquitlam theatre company that opens its season next Thursday with The Creature Creeps.
Written by Jack Sharkey and directed by Miles Lavkulich, the comedy is the first of three shows in Stage 43’s A Walk On The Wild Side round, which also includes the Lion in Winter, in January, and The Elephant Man in April/May.
The Creature Creeps has all the usual spooky elements: an ancient castle in Transylvania, a mad scientist and even a grim housekeeper.
And it includes Tri-City actors Dan Jabour, Gary Brown, Katrina Ovans, Trevor Monaghan, Christina Xu and Sue Davey.
It runs at the Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam) from Oct. 17 to 20, and Oct. 23 to 26.
The Oct. 23 performance has two-for-one pricing for single, adult tickets (use the discount code CREATURE).
Partial proceeds from ticket sales in the second-week run will be donated to the New View Society in Port Coquitlam.
