WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Next month, you can help support local theater by enjoying a production of Cannibal! The Musical, performed by Pineapple-Shaped Lamps.
The screenplay for the movie was written by Trey Parker, known for South Park and The Book of Mormon, but the script PSL will use is an original stage adaptation. The group also expanded on the sheet music by adding parts for multiple instruments and the ensemble.
Cannibal! The Musical is based on the true story of Alferd Packer, who was convicted of cannibalism in the 1800s. The show is not recommended for young children.
Wesley Brown, Owner/Artistic Director of Pineapple-Shaped Lamps said the show is very absurd in nature and is a comedy/horror/musical that pokes fun at the nature of Broadway musicals.
Brown said the group plans on having a special pay-what-you-can night to support Hurricane Florence relief efforts. Details will be available on their website pslcomedy.com.
