This Halloween night, the Drexel Co-op Theatre Company will open its version of Yasuhiko Ohashi's Godzilla, a campy, comic romp with the Japanese cultural icon, at the URBN Center Annex's Black Box Theater (3401 Filbert St.).
On opening night, attendees who come dressed in costume will receive free admission. The person wearing the best/most creative costume (as judged by the Godzilla production/performance crew), will receive two free passes to the Co-op Theatre Company's upcoming production of the musical The Apple Tree, running Nov. 21 - 24.
Godzilla will play Thursday, Oct. 31, Friday, Nov. 1, Saturday Nov. 2, Friday, Nov. 8, Saturday, Nov. 9 at 8 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 3 at 2 p.m. and Thursday, Nov. 7 at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $5 for Drexel students, faculty and staff with a valid ID.

The story of Godzilla focuses on young Yayoi Ichinose, who brings her fiancé, Godzilla, home to meet her parents. Mr. and Mrs. Ichinose disapprove of their daughter's choice of a husband. The chaos that results from the lovers' announcement to marry is hard on the family and their entire town. With everyone against them, Godzilla's child from a "previous relationship," and with Godzilla's bad temper, how will their love ever survive?
