Sure, horror films are scary fun. But what about LIVE things going bump in the night right in front of you? That’s where theater comes in. Some hair-raising productions on stages around town this week:
–“The Skriker”: A tale of a shapeshifting being that is tracking teens in London…..not for fashion tips, though. At Erickson Theatre. Review here.
–“The Addams Family”: Not so much terrifying as mirthfully macabre. At the 5th Avenue. Review here.
–“Hellbilly”: Blood Squad, in collaboration with Balagan Theatre, presents a late-night trilogy of improvised horror films. Viewer discretion advised! Next show is Nov. 2. Info here.
–“Zombies”: Bellevue Youth Theater’s annual Halloween show is for the whole family — really! — and its final performances are this weekend. Info here.
