Ready to be spooked? Here's a little bit of scary to start your day:
This holiday season Strangeloop Theatre presents Krampus! written by Company Member Jacyln Jensen and Mike Wozniak and directed by Company Member Maria Burnham.
Krampus! is a Christmas horror stage production (with nothing, but the eponymous Christmas demon, in common with the movie of the same name). The plot follows the Murray family as they get together for a final Midwestern cabin Christmas before the eldest daughter and her boyfriend move to New York. But it isn't enough that they have to deal with the usual drama that comes with Christmas. The Murray family has to do it in the isolation of a cabin in the woods, during a snow storm with a holiday devil running amok and only some peppermint schnaps to get them through it.
The Krampus! schedule is below. All performances begin at 7:30 p.m.:
- Monday, December 7, at Mary's Attic in Andersonville
- Tuesday, December 8, at Mary's Attic in Andersonville
- Monday, December 14, at Underground Wonder Bar in River North
