There has been a murder in Dracula’s castle! When humans are allowed into The Underworld Semi-Centennial for the first time in history (recorded, or otherwise), one of them finds himself shuffled off the mortal coil. Now it’s up to the werewolves, demons, fairies, and Bob to solve this crime before the truce between the mundane and supernatural world is broken. There may also be burgers after.

Based on a story by Caylee Smith. Adapted for the stage by Caylee Smith and Chris Cole.

    One of the best aspects of Fringe is hearing good lines and sharing laughs with a live audience. You’ll get that here.

    Ever wondered what a show written by a werewolf would be like?
    Wolfie (named Geoffrey –of course) is a murder sniffing sleuth, AND a grillmaster.

    Imagine KC BBQ transported to Transylvanian castle where monsters are cooking mici on a grill (pronounced meech). What are the odds that the reviewer in the audience was born over an hour away from Dracula’s castle and could share a story or two after the show (and then hang out with monsters late night at a bar at the fun game night at Fringe Late Nite)? These performers are nice peeps, back this year with interesting and fun productions.

    Five monsters and two humans in a castle. What could go wrong?

    Great voice acting from the voice over the speakers (plays Bigsby the Ghost).

    Written after getting an idea at ComicCon, this show offers laughs and monsters as you may never have imagined them. If you have kids w fears (warning: a couple F-bombs), this might be the perfect show to set those fears aside and have fun chats and car ride home (regardless if 3, 33 or 93).
