Sugar Factory Playhouse presents a Halloween special, the hilarious farce “Honeymoon at Graveside Manor,” written by Pat Cook and directed by Kassidy Gull.
Marian Thorncraft is looking forward to her honeymoon with her new hubby, Tyler. She pictures someplace romantic, secluded, and cozy. But no sooner have her feet touched the ground after being carried over the threshold than she discovers her love nest is really a one-time mortuary! Graveside Manor, as the locals call it, has been abandoned for years, mainly due to the rumors of it being haunted. Cozy as a bat cave, it’s about as secluded as Grand Central Station. A daffy maid shows up to clean the place and gets lost in the catacombs behind the walls. This goes unnoticed because Tyler is too busy ducking a female ghost with a hatchet, three high-school kids trying to set up a Halloween prank, and his wise-cracking female editor who once had a crush on him. Throw in an absent-minded cop and the escaped lunatic he’s looking for, and the stage is set for a Honeymoon at Graveside Manor!
Performances will be October 10, 11, 12, 14, 16, 17, 18 at 7:30, with a 2:00 matinee on October 12 at Pioneer Hall (1137 W. 7800 S. in West Jordan).
Tickets are $9-$12 for general admission and $5-$8 for children (12 and under), students (with ID), seniors (60 and over), and groups of 10 or more (must purchase tickets at the same time).
