All Hallows Eve: A Wild, Eclectic Horror Musical with Puppets
October 18 – November 2, 2019
At the The Connelly Theater
220 E 4th St
A wild, horror musical journey across the grey veil on a Halloween night, testing a sister’s and brother’s love against the forces of true evil, with book, lyrics and puppet design by Martin P. Robinson (Little Shop of Horrors; “Sesame Street”) and music by Paul Rudolph (Emmy Award-winning composer, “Sesame Street”, “GLANK”).
Mr. Robinson directs a cast of ten from the casts of “Sesame Street,” Avenue Q and “Little Shop…” and other iconic productions, including Jennifer Barnhart* (Avenue Q, “Sesame Street,” “Julie’s Greenroom”), Tyler Bunch* (“Julie’s Greenroom”, “The Tick”), Aubrey Clinedinst (Dario Fo, The Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre), Austin Michael Costello (“Sesame Street”), Cedwan Hooks (Award-winning puppet designer); Haley Jenkins (“Sesame Street”, The Pee-Wee Herman Show), Kathleen Kim (“A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” with Tom Hanks, “Sesame Street”), Marca Leigh* (“The Muppets”), Spencer Lott (“A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” with Tom Hanks, “Sesame Street”), and Kaitee Yaeko Tredway (Avenue Q).
Eve and Evan are twins roped into yet another desperately dull Halloween by their parents. Managing to break free, they maraud, pumpkin-smash and toilet-paper, inadvertently crossing the thin line between worlds on this night of all nights. They enter a house and meet a demoness who has been lying in wait for just such a pair. A harrowing cat-and-mouse game ensues with the stakes being nothing less than their immortal souls. All Hallows Eve is a tale wrapped up in horror, comedy, and blood…and definitely not for young children.
Producers: Martin P. Robinson, Annie Evans and Jean Marie Keevins; Scenic Designers: Christopher Swader and Justin Swader; Lighting Designer: Alex Jainchill; Choreographer: Kaitee Yaeko Tredway; Public Relations: Paul Siebold/Off Off PR.
