“Monster Soup” Spends Halloween Week in North Fork
Rehearsals are under way for this year’s Fall Follies, which will take place Oct. 26-27 and Nov. 2-3, at the North Fork Town Hall.
The evening will be full of surprises, and will end up with the play “Monster Soup.” This is a comedy written by Tim Kelly about a family of ghouls being harassed by Lawyer Fleasom, the meanest man in Graveyard Corners.The “Monster” cast includes: Elaine Fink as Granny Ghoul, Karen McAleece as Belle, Sharon Snyder as Pearl, Terry Butler as Minnie, Amy Duke as Ada Mae, David Novell as Lawyer Fleasom, Al Flory as The Preacher and Michael Doornbos as Professor Barker.
This incredible cast is having a great time working together to create this hilarious spoof on a melodrama with a surprise ending!
The night will begin with a wonderful dinner at 6 p.m. with Roz Thrapp at the helm. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., with a no-host bar staffed by the North Fork Boosters. The show starts at 7 p.m.
Included in the evening, will be our very own “Old Geezers” played by Barry Shrewsbury, Dale Clugston and Al Flory.
You also will be treated to a musical skit from the very talented Amy Duke, David Novell and Jeff Gurule, with help from Chloe Duke, and then be treated to a performance by a talented group of local dancers, choreographed by Terry Butler.
You definitely won’t want to miss our special performance of the “Ladies of the Mop” with Elaine Fink reprising a role she first performed in the 1970s. Elaine will be accompanied by some other surprise “mop ladies.”
Admission, which includes dinner and the show, is $12 for adults, $6 for children 12 and under, or $30 for a family (immediate family only).
