Prom Night – The Musical

The Stark Turn Players are a newly-formed non-profit theatre group in Grand Rapids.

Last evening, photographer Tim Motely stopped by Dog Story Theater to check out their annual Halloween horror parody Prom Night – The Musical. Based on the 1980 film Prom Night, by William Grey, the musical parody features original songs by Joel L. Schindlbeck.

In 1974, three children played a dangerous game of tag, ending up with the death of a little girl, Elizabeth Bacon.  The three swore they’d never tell, but someone saw.  Six years later, as the school prepares for the prom, those three homicidal children start receiving creepy phone calls and suspicions arise.   As the big night approaches, the three start dying off, one by one.  For everyone at Grover Cleveland High School, it becomes a prom night that no one will ever forget.

The show runs at Dog Story Theater, October 26-31st with special midnight showings on October 28 & 29 and a Costume Contest and party with refreshments, prizes and dancing on Halloween night, October 31 at 8:00 pm.
