Otherworld Theatre Announces Fall Shows

Otherworld Theatre Company, the premier sci-fi and fantasy theatrical production company in North America, today announced new shows and new seasons of returning favorites for Fall 2023, all staged at their storefront location at 3914 N. Clark St.

From creature features to nerdy news, outer space to fantasy realms, Otherworld’s productions celebrate pop culture fandom in all its forms. Tickets are available online at www.otherworldtheatre.org

CREATURE FEATURE - New Show! 

Every Saturday beginning September 30, 10 p.m.

Created by : Judson Russell

Director: Kevin Dolan

Join the CinEvil Society as they search for the world's most evil film! Be the test audience as your villainous host screens a select horror movie to see if it can terrify you into submission. Unfortunately, the aging VHS tapes used to copy these fiendish films from late night TV in the 80’s have degraded over the years, and the missing scenes must be re-created by a cast of damned improvisers freshly summoned from the netherworld. Even though they’ve never seen the original movie. What creature will feature next? The hungry C.H.U.D.? The groovy Ghoulies? Or the big balls of Phantasm? Dare to buy a ticket to this late night fright and find out!

Cast: Ruby Avina, Kaleb Lightfoot, Saoirse Sine, Colleen Prendergast, Burell Kingery, Cameron Pfeifer, Blaine Wohlgemuth, Judson Russel, Abby Seeber, Christina Torres, Michelle Lerch, and Emily Sekura
