Tom Holland’s classic horror film ‘Fright Night‘ is about to come face to face with fans and Tom could not be happier. This is something Mr. Holland had always wanted to see happen. For real!
The Rage of the Stage Players, Pittsburgh’s longest-running dark/fringe theatre company, have announced today that with the permission of Tom Holland, they will present a visceral one-of-a-kind horror stage production, which will rock your Halloween season!
“Welcome to Fright Night…FOR REAL.”
Come join us for a historic piece of theatre and a Halloween event not-to-be-missed: the world premiere stage adaptation of Tom Holland’s (Psycho II, Child’s Play, Stephen King’s Thinner) classic vampire film from 1985, Fright Night!
Lovingly adapted and directed for the stage by Pittsburgh playwright James Michael Shoberg and produced by The Rage of the Stage Players, Fright Night is a faithful version of the beloved cult film. But, just like every Rage production, it contains new twists and turns in the spirit of the original that will make it just as new to die-hard fans as Fright Night virgins!
Fright Night tells the tale of Charley Brewster, “the boy who cried vampire.” Charley is an All-American teen and horror fanatic. Upon witnessing the very strange and unsettling nightly activity of his new neighbors (Jerry Dandrige and Billy Cole,) Charley begins to believe that Dandrige is, in fact, one of the blood-sucking undead.
Given his taste for the macabre, Charley is unable to convince his mother, his girlfriend (Amy) and his best friend (“Evil” Ed) to take him seriously. This leaves Charley with little choice but to seek the aid of his childhood hero (a hammy B-movie vampire hunter by the name of Peter Vincent), whose perceived expertise Charley needs to defeat Dandrige and protect those he loves.
