Charles Busch’s camp classic PSYCHO BEACH PARTY follows the schizophrenic world of Chicklet, a Gidget-esque nerd with a dream to surf. When people in the town are attacked in strange sado-masochistic ways, it is up to the surf-bums and a B-Grade Horror star to find the culprit and save Chicklet from her potentially lethal sexual awakening.
This production boasts a cross-gendered cast, sixties surf rock hits, and an appreciation of the perverse. Its classic Busch meets the golden age of Hollywood and the homo-eroticism of Point Break.
“...this is a perfect theatrical fit."
SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
“Stunningly efficacious and evenly-matched cast... The bare-midriffed Flanders is, if not divinely, comically inspired casting.”
