What fun we've had with this wacky cast and the responses from our audiences. But now it's time to come to a close. In fact, we're closing a day earlier than we expected due to the good fortune of one of our cast members who has been called to perform this summer out of state and must leave this coming Sunday to make her debut in Texas. We are a community theatre and there's nothing that makes us prouder than to see one of our home grown talents spread wings and fly.

To celebrate Memorial Day weekend, we're having a ticket sale. On Thursday, May 26 only, tickets will be $10 when you use the code THURSPM online, by phone or at the door. Otherwise, the ticket is $18. And it's the same $18 on Friday and on Saturday.

So join us to give this great cast a fond farewell and have some laughs on us.

Head: The Musical! is an ‘R’-rated pop/rock adaptation of the classic 1960’s ‘B’ movie The Brain that Wouldn’t Die, Head is crazy, campy, crass, full of frights, and thoroughly hilarious. This musical was created by Arizona resident, Kevin Fry, and was an audience favorite at the 2009 Phoenix Fringe Festival before running for 5 months in Hollywood, where it received 3 LA Weekly Award nominations. Head draws favorable comparisons to Little Shop of Horrors and Evil Dead: the Musical and has been called a Rocky Horror for the Family Guy generation. This Tucson premiere features brand-new material and the sensational choreography of Mickey Nugent. It’s a theatrical event you can’t afford to miss!

Dr. Bill Cortner has been conducting illegal experiments with human transplants. On a drive with his girlfriend, Jan, Bill is distracted by Jan’s naughty behavior and a car wreck ensues. Jan is decapitated. Not to fear, Bill keeps Jan's head alive on a table using a special serum while he goes out to search for a new (preferably voluptuous and nubile) body. Meanwhile, Jan develops psychic powers and a thirst for revenge!

The cast includes Kristina Sloan, Kevin Fry, China Young, Lucas Gonzales, Scott O’Brien, Tashiana Holt, Jim Klingenfus, and Evan Werner.

Note: Strong language, sexual content and violence make this production only appropriate for mature audiences.

Active Imagination Theatre Closing Cowboys and Fairies This Weekend

When greedy developers want to spoil a magical part of the desert, cowboys and fairies have to band together to stop them. This is the story that will be developed with the help of children ages four to eight on the stage with our Active Imagination Theatre at Beowulf Alley Theatre on May 28, 2011 at 12 noon. This 40-minute venture into creativity is both fun and educational for children and will bring joy to the hearts of their parents as they help to develop the story and find a resolution to save the desert. We encourage them to dress in their cowboy and fairy outfits and help our team of adult actors. Each performance is just a little different as the children who are present help to create the story through their active imaginations.

Saturday, noon, May 28.

Online tickets: $8 adults (at least the day before), $5 children 4-12, children 3 and under are free when seated in parents lap. Tickets at the door or by phone are $10 for adults with children the same price as online.

To purchase tickets, please go to, or call (520) 882-0555.
