Written by Amy Escobar

November 6-9, 2019, 7 p.m.


Scary Mary and the Nightmares Nine

Artwork by Ian R. '20.

When Mary pricks her finger on a needle, a drop of her blood falls down into the darkest caverns of the earth and awakens the ancient Slither. His minions emerge from the depths and reveal that in order to save herself from his gnashing teeth, she must journey through the terrifying Nightmares Nine in an epic fight for her life.

Scary Mary and the Nightmares Nine examines a young woman's struggle with inner demons through the shadowy realm of her imagination—a fantastical world full of humor, fear, friendship, and foes. This fast-paced adventure is told through light and shadow, ensemble work, and features imaginative puppetry brought to life by Stagecraft in collaboration with local puppet artist Kelly Campbell.

Our intention is to playfully spook our audience as they visit Mary’s imaginative “haunted house” (non-gore) so the performance may not be suitable for students Pre-K–3rd grade sensitive to sudden shifts of light and sound.
