Scream Queens in Independence

"They sing, they dance, they die!" reads the tagline for Scream Queens, a campy spoof of horror films written by Scott Martin, a native Clevelander turned West Coast playwright. Set in the ballroom of the imaginary Parma Holiday Place Hotel, the musical turns the audience into attendees at a horror-film convention, where six voluptuous B-list "scream queens" tell their stories with assistance from filmed clips, live action, and zombies. Local actor and theater vet Eric Oswald first saw the musical in L.A. in 1998 and had been trying since then to get a Cleveland-area company to perform it. He finally hit pay dirt with the Independence Community Theatre, which will perform the musical on Friday and Saturday nights for the next four weekends; tickets are $10. Tonight's 8 p.m. preview performance, however, is a fund-raiser: Tickets are $25 with all proceeds going to the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland. Get yours at 216-447-0443; visit independencetheatre.org for more information. The theater is at 6652 Brecksville Rd. in Independence. — Cicora
