Director and Co-Writer Jim Millan comes from a comedy background including work on the legendary sketch comedy show The Kids in the Hall and SPANK! The Fifty Shades Parody which sold out its City Theatre's debut seven performances earlier this year. Says Jim of The Hungry Hungry Games, "There are teens hunting each other with bows and arrows, but here you get to see the tributes duke it out with a war of rhymes during the epic rap battle. You didn't think post-apocalyptic dystopia could be turned into a comedy? Well, yes, it can."
Incorporating spoofs of popular culture, The Hungry Hungry Games hits the bulls-eye. No matter what "District" you are from, prepare for the ultimate "Tribute" to the best-selling novel and hit movie.
The Hungry Hungry Games is an unauthorized production and is not associated with author SuzAnne Collins or Scholastic. The show is recommended for ages 13 and up.
