"A Zombie, a Vampire, and a Werewolf Walk Into a Bar..."

Cole Marquis & Calie Voorhis

It sounds like the beginning of a joke, and perhaps it is:  A Zombie, a Vampire, and a Werewolf Walk Into a Bar... is a new play written by local author & playwright CalieVoorhis.  The show is playing Friday and Saturday nights through October 31st at TheatreNow, a dinner theater production with "Witch's Fingers" for appetizers and entree choices like "Dem Bones" (BBQ Ribs) and "Blood and Guts" (ironically, a vegetarian pasta dish).  Dinner and the show begin at 7:00.  

Artists from the production joining us in the studio include Calie Voorhis, the playwright; Beth Swindell, the director; and Cole Marquis, the songwriter (you can hear a brief sample of the music in the interview).

"A Zombie, a Vampire, and a Werewolf Walk Into a Bar..." by Calie Voorhis. 7:00pm Friday & Saturday nights through Halloween at Theatre Now on 10th & Dock.

The show is not "horrific," according to Voorhis; instead, she approaches horror by creating a sense of unease for the audience.  Still, it's full of comedy and some fun for the audience, including a trivia game.  It's not for young audiences.
