Misfits of Minot switch things up
The Misfits of Minot are very excited to present an all new shadowcast performance of the 1959 film “House on Haunted Hill” on Saturday at the Sleep Inn & Suites. Tickets are $10 per person and will be sold at the door. The doors open at 7 p.m. and the performance will start at 8 p.m. There will be an open bar for those that are 21 and older. The show is open to all ages.
The movie is about a millionaire, Frederick Loren, who invites five other people to the House on Haunted Hill for a “haunted house” party. Those who stay in the house for a single night will earn $10,000. As the night goes on, however, they must face many different terrors while they are trapped in side.
According to a press release, Christian Marcelletta, the president and co-director of the Misfits of Minot, said, “We chose ‘House on Haunted Hill’ as it’s a favorite among many of our board members.”
This new performance will differ from their performances of “Rocky Horror Picture Show” in that they will be on stage the entire time, not just during particular scenes. In all, Marcelletta said that the performance will be an hour-and-a-half in length.
In the press release, the cast includes Vincent Moore as Frederick Loren; Tiffany Kerfoot Erie as Annabelle Loren; Thomas Abbey as Lance Schroeder; Jerome Erie as Dr. David Trent; River Styxx as Nora Manning; Blue as Watson Pritchard; Christian Marcelletta as Ruth Bridgers; and Kati Thompson and Frank Clark as the as Mr. and Mrs. Slydes.
The “House on Haunted Hill” performance will be raising funds for Minot Out of the Darkness, which in turn raises funds for the Minot chapter of American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. “Suicide has affected many of us in many different ways, whether it’s surviving our own attempts, fighting off the thoughts, or losing someone we love,” Marcelletta said. “It just felt right.”
Members of Minot Out of the Darkness will be present, holding a silent auction of several items. Among them are a homemade kitchen island by Sentinal Woodworks, men’s clothing and hats donated by Hot Topic, retro faerie creations, handmade jewelry and hand sewn accessories.
Marcelletta said that The Misfits of Minot are excited to go in a new direction with a new show and are looking forward to hosting more events to broaden their horizons.
