Photo Coverage: Preview: Bloody Good Productions Theatre Co. Presents Columbus Premiere of LIZZIE
Columbus is going to get the axe this Valentine's Day weekend as Bloody Good Productions Theatre Company presents its premiere production, LIZZIE by Steven Cheslik-DeMeyer (music and lyrics), Tim Maner (book, lyrics, and additional music), and Alan Stevens Hewitt (music, additional lyrics, and orchestrations). This production marks the Columbus premiere of LIZZIE. JAMS Photography is the presenting sponsor for the show.
LIZZIE is a four-woman hard-rock retelling of the bloody legend of America's favorite axe-wielding double murderess and Victorian hometown girl, Lizzie Borden. Set in August 1892, LIZZIE focuses on the events leading up to the double-murders of Andrew and Abby Borden and its aftermath. Let's just say that all hell breaks loose in the house of Borden. Cast includes Jordan Shafer as Lizzie Borden, Abby Zeszotek as Emma Borden, Dakota Thorn as Bridget Sullivan (Maggie), and Cassie Gress as Alice Russell. Production staff includes Director Allison Walker, Assistant Director Abby Zeszotek, and Music Director Zac DelMonte.
Bloody Good Productions Theatre Co. will be donating ticket proceeds to Gracehaven, a local organization focused on providing care for the victims of sex trafficking and taking steps for prevention. Representatives from Gracehaven will be present at the Friday, February 15th, performance and will host an information session about their organization after the show. You can learn more about Gracehaven here: https://www.gracehaven.me/
