Get in the Halloween spirit with 'TheaTerror'

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Starting Friday, a local production will be doing its part to get you in the Halloween spirit.

TheaTerror begins an Oct. 6-31 run at Wilmington's TheatreNOW on Friday and the show's director, Chase Harrison, and one of the actors, Erin Hunter, will join WECT's Marissa Hundley to discuss it on Thursday's First at Four.

Described as a throwback to the classic slasher films of the 1980s, TheaTerror chronicles a doomed production of "Macbeth" staged by The Penny Theater Company, which has fallen on tough times.

Days before opening night, the lead actor vanishes, which puts the director and producer at odds as they attempt to find a replacement.

TheaTerror is a dinner theater production with shows on Friday and Saturday nights at 7 p.m. as well as a Halloween showing at 7. Show-only tickets are available.
