Varsity Cheerleader Werewolves from Outer Space!

Last night we went to see this live show at The Funhouse Lounge.

First off, the Funhouse Lounge has a pretty creepy clown room, funhouse mirrors and old side show posters as decor. It was a interesting place, I didn't even know existed in Portland.

We saw this live stage show, it had originally been imagined as a movie, but the writer/director, local PDXer Steve Coker opted to adapt it for the stage.

The story follows the main protagonist Stacy moving to Klamath Falls and encountering some mean cheerleaders, who of course turn into werewolves and cause havoc on the town. In true 80s style the dialogue and schtick totally fit the 80s teen movie mold.

This 60 minute show was really fun, some of actors played multiple roles and Steve even put a wink into classic Tarantino. I also really enjoyed how the actors incorporated things that happened in the audience into the show.

The show runs through the end of April on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, you can get tickets on Brown Paper tickets or at the door.
