Theatre Three presents Psycho Beach Party
Gidget goes berserk in this hilarious and outrageous mash-up of Frankie Avalon, Annette Funicello and the “Three Faces of Eve.” Playwright Charles Busch knows how to stuff a wild bikini with psychotic glee in Psycho Beach Party. The wacky story follows Chicklet Forrest, a teenage tomboy who desperately wants to be part of the surf crowd on Malibu Beach in 1962. One thing getting in her way is her unfortunate tendency towards split personalities. Among them is an elderly radio talk show hostess, a male model named Steve and her most dangerous alter ego, a sexually voracious vixen named Ann Bowman who is obsessed with world domination.
