The 7th annual Cutler Brother’s “Creepshow” will take place beginning this Friday, October 26th, and running Saturday the 27th and Halloween night as well. “Creepshow” is an interactive haunted house which takes place at the Cutler Bros. Theatre located at 301 Main Street in Deer Lodge. The show began in 2012.
The theme for the Cutler “Creepshow” this year is “People Under the Stairs” mixed with the “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” The basic story for both is that burglars are attempting to break into a forlorn mansion with evidence that the property owners have a gold and cash treasure inside. The burglars quickly figure out that this mansion has much more in store than a creepy couple that enjoys their privacy. The couple happen to be brother and sister and they put their adopted children in the cellar once they find something wrong with them. Their protégé is a chainsaw wielding psychopath that they have manipulated to “cut the bad parts out” of the other children.
Kelly and Matthew Cutler have once again written the Cutler “Creepshow” and they have high hopes. “It’s our seventh year. Five shows here at the theatre, and two at the Old Prison Museum,” said the show’s director Kelly Cutler. He continued, “If you’re looking for psychological. If you’re looking for a storyline, this is the place to be this October.”
The Cutler “Creepshow” runs October 26, 27, and Halloween nights beginning at 7:00 pm and running until close. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the Cutler Bros. Box Office at 301 ½ Main on the nights of the show. Average wait times are about an hour. For more information call (406) 846-4096 or visit cutlerbros.com.
“Misery” will kick off the Cutler Bros.’ October festivities at the brother’s theatre in Deer Lodge beginning Saturday, October 13th @ 7:30 pm and running until Sunday, October 21st at 2:00 pm. “Misery” is a parody adapted by Kelly Cutler based on the Stephen King thriller, the 1990 film starring Kathy Bates and James Caan, and original ideas set forth by the Cutler Bros. entertainment group. Tickets are $15 to $18.
The adaptation on “Misery” takes place in the far backwoods of northern Colorado where ex-nurse Annie Wilkes (Carin Sullivan) resides in a docile farmhouse. A blizzardy night in early January pulls famous novelist Paul Sheldon (Kelly Cutler) off the roads in most violent fashion. He would have surely died if Miss Wilkes hadn’t been on the roads that evening. After waking up to a true Hell, perhaps Mr. Sheldon wishes death was the consequence of the car crash.
“Misery” is a psychological thriller that pins Annie Wilkes against Paul Sheldon. Annie is Paul’s self-proclaimed “number one fan.” Paul quickly realizes that Annie actually just has a couple of bolts loose in her head and he needs a quick escape route. However, both of his legs are broken, and Annie is a dominating character, both physically and emotionally. As personality after personality come forth from Annie’s psyche, Paul realizes just how much trouble he truly is in.
The show is deemed a “parody” by Cutler Brother’s Productions because it is a conglomeration of book, movie, social commentary, and original thought. “The adaptation of this Stephen King thriller is a bit darker, a bit more comedic, and still comments on all of the juiciest parts of the book and the movie,” said the show’s director and the actor to portray Paul Sheldon, Kelly Cutler. He added, “Our Creepshow theme last year was Stephen King, and the Misery scene showed me just how much darker and more disturbing the character of Annie Wilkes can go.”
“Misery” plays live on the Cutler Brother’s stage, located at 301 Main in Deer Lodge, from October 13th to the 21st. Nightly showings are Thursday to Saturday at 7:30 pm, and Sunday matinees at 2:00 pm. Tickets may be pre-reserved by calling the box office at (406) 846-4096, or by visiting cutlerbros.com. Show not appropriate for children 12 and under.
