As a general rule, I don’t like attending shows with the words; “ghost” or “terror” in the title, but in the case of “Dr. Zomba’s Ghost Show of Terror,” I may have to amend my rule.
Playing Dr. Zomba (or is he just playing?) is the endearing and funny David M. Beach. The show kicks of with some magic, ventriloquism, jokes and hypnotism. We are introduced to “Ear-Gore”, played by Kerr Lordygan and “Sirena,” played by Tamara Torres who are minions of the good Doctor. The interactions among the three characters are very funny and well acted. Dracula, played with brilliant intensity by S. Alessandro Martinez, also makes a charming, surprise visit during the show.
“Dr. Zomba’s Ghost Show of Terror” is a fun show, moves at a really good pace and is very well complemented by some great atmospheric lighting and spooky sound effects. The direction, by Kevin Wetmore, artfully keeps our attention and cleverly builds on the anticipation of what comes next. The show was written by David Lucarelli and I can only imagine the enjoyment he must have had in writing it. All together this show makes for a thoroughly frightening and very entertaining evening of frights and laughter.
