Best Bet

October 17, 2002|By J. Wynn Rousuck

Silver Scream, an original musical comedy, opens tomorrow at the Audrey Herman Spotlighters Theatre. A campy take on horror movies from Bride of Frankenstein to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, the musical has a script by Baltimore's JimmyO Burril -- who is currently shooting a film version -- and a score by Florida-based songwriter James M. Taylor.

The 14-member cast is directed by Ronald Burr and Dahlia Kaminsky; musical direction is by Fuzz Roark. The show is not recommended for young children.

Show times at the Spotlighters Theatre, 817 St. Paul St., are 8 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Oct. 31, and 2 p.m. Sundays. The show runs through Nov. 2. Tickets are $15. (A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Annie's Children, a charity for sick and disadvantaged youngsters founded by local actress Anne Mulligan.) Call 410-752-1225.
