The Players Club of Swarthmore's Children's Theater Opens with BUNNICULA, 10/5-10/14
The Players Club of Swarthmore's Children's Theater Series will kick off its season with Bunnicula, a vampire-themed story just in time for Halloween, opening October 5.
The spooky, fun tale stars the Monroe family's furry friends, Chester (cat) and Harold (dog). After an evening at the movies, the Monroes bring home a new family pet – a rabbit. But this isn't just any bunny, this is Bunnicula! When Chester and Harold start noticing strange things happening, like the family's produce losing its juice, they begin to suspect that the new family pet is a vampire... or is Chester's imagination just getting the better of him? Watch as the mystery unfolds through singing, dancing and sleuthing fun for the whole family.
Director Jim Fryer has assembled a talented, local cast of grown-up players from Philadelphia, Media, Wallingford and Drexel Hill to bring this Halloween mystery to life: Aimee Wein, J.J. Vavrik, Al Them, Barbara Bibby, Talia Kaplan, Anthony Flamminio and Danny Donnelly. The show is a musical with arrangements by Musical Director, Dolores Ciavolo.
Bunnicula runs Friday, October 5th at 7pm; Saturday, October 6th at 4:30; Sunday, October 7th at 11am; Friday, October 12th at 7pm; Saturday, October 13th at 4:30pm; and Sunday, October 14th at 11am. All Children's Series productions will be performed on The Players Club of Swarthmore's Raymond W. Smith stage on the second floor.
Adult tickets are $10.00 each and Children under 12 are $8.00, cash or check only. All children two years of age and under are free. All tickets are sold at the door on the day of the performance.
