PITT-BRADFORD THEATER STAGES HORROR PLAY ‘APPARITION’

BRADFORD, Pa. -- The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s Spectrum art series continues with a special Halloween student production of “Apparition,” a play by Anne Washburn.

The play will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 27 through 29, with a special late-night performance at 10:30 p.m. on Oct. 28. It will take place in the studio theater of Blaisdell Hall, and costs $6 for general admissions and $2 for students.

“‘Apparition’ is like a haunted house ride in the theatre, where we encounter and accumulate all these fragments of uneasiness and dread,” said Dr. Kevin Ewert, director of the theatre program at Pitt-Bradford and director of “Apparition.”

The play combines elements of a campfire ghost story with darkly humorous tales of the culinary habits of demons with multiple references to Shakespeare’s “Macbeth,” as a group of actors describe it, or perform it, or dream it – or all of the above.

New York Times’ critic Jason Zinoman called a 2005 production in the city’s East Village “spine-tingling.”

Ewert said, “It's smart and terrifying and funny and the perfect show for Halloween, which is why we are foregoing our usual daytime matinee and adding a special late-night show instead.

“We have a very talented ensemble cast for this one.”

The cast includes Lanessa Hickman, a psychology and biology major from Lees Summit, Missouri; Shaan Hossain, a history-political science major from Pittsburgh; Holly Kilpatrick, a freshman psychology major with a theatre minor from Bradford; Nathan Lawyer, a history-political science and economics major from Coraopolis; Collin Maines, a senior broadcast communications major with a theatre minor from Sheffield; Patrick Martucci, a senior broadcast communication major from Stockton, California, and Carlie Watson, a radiological science major from Coudersport.

Martucci said, “People aren’t going to know what to expect when the curtain opens up, and that’s part of the fun of doing this kind of play so close to Halloween.”

Some scenes are intense, and the production is not appropriate for young children.
