Charles Busch's camp classic is the perfect bipolar summertime party in St Kilda.
Psycho Beach Party by Charles Busch
Presented by Little Ones Theatre and Theatre Works
Camp classic, Psycho Beach Party, follows the schizophrenic world of Chicklet, a Gidget-esque nerd with a dream to surf. When people in the town are attacked in strange sado-masochistic ways, it is up to the surf-bums and a B-Grade Horror star to find the culprit and save Chicklet from her potentially lethal sexual awakening.
This production boasts a cross-gendered cast, sixties surf rock hits, and an appreciation of the perverse. It's classic Busch meets the golden age of Hollywood and the homo-eroticism of Point Break.
Little Ones Theatre develops and presents work that allows you to love ferociously, abandon yourself and let your heart explode.
