The Annoyance is proud to once again remount, for its 23rd year, “Splatter Theater,” the first-ever Annoyance production.
A parody of Friday the 13th type movies, the characters in “Splatter Theater” include such archetypes as a nun, the school jock, the virgin, the class dick, and of course the bumbling old man. Laugh and watch them all die in different ways: Tongue pulled out, drill in the head, intestines being ripped out, slashed throat, and the list goes on. With freshly painted white walls on the stage before each performance, the audience will be horrified and delighted by the end, when the walls are covered in blood!
“Splatter Theater” will open Saturday, September 25 at 10:01 PM and run every Saturday through October 30. Tickets are $15 for Splatter. There will be a special Halloween performance on Sunday, October 31 at 8:00 PM. Tickets can be purchased at the company’s website theannoyance.com or by calling the box office: 773.561.HONK (4665). The Annoyance is located at 4830 N. Broadway, Chicago, Illinois.
AND just in time for Halloween, The Annoyance is bringing back last year’s hit show, “Salem! The Musical,” a bewitching musical set in the Puritan town of Salem in 1692 - just when things were getting interesting.
New to the neighborhood, bumbling businessman Reverend Parris and his daughter get wrapped up in the most musical witch-hunt in history.
This past year, the original cast performed this steadfastly un-factual musical to sold out crowds at The Capital Fringe Festival in Washington DC, and the Cincinnati Fringe Festival in Cincinnati.
Director Mark Vannier has also directed “Frostbite” at The Annoyance. Starring an all-female cast and an original score by Dan Wessels, the Music Director at ComedySportz and of “Baby Wants Candy.”
“Salem! The Musical” will run every Saturday at 8:00 PM from October 2 through November 13. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the company’s website theannoyance.com or by calling the box office: 773.561.HONK (4665). The Annoyance is located at 4830 N. Broadway, Chicago, Illinois.
