The North County Drama Club will present a Halloween-themed production this weekend with two performances.

The play, “Meet the Creeps” will take the stage on Saturday at 7 p.m. and again on Sunday at 2 p.m. in the North County Auditorium. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and 1:30 p.m. Sunday. The cost is $5 for adults and $3 for students while children 3 and under are free.

Drama Sponsor Kelly Gentry said for the fall season they wanted to do something fun for Halloween, but still a light-hearted comedy.

“This one is called ‘Meet the Creeps’ and it’s kind of based on the Addams Family and the Munsters,” said Gentry. “They are a really oddball family within a town full of normal people and there is all kinds of craziness that comes from that."

Gentry said it’s a really fun Halloween-themed play that everyone can enjoy.

Senior Kylie “Ethan” Sago will be playing the role of Sinbad the pirate and Sago said the character is a descendant of many pirates and he is head of the Creeps household.

“He takes care of the house and the family,” said Sago. “In this play they tell him that his house in no longer in Edible Falls. The Creeps mansion has been in Edible Falls for years and years and it is tearing him apart.”

Sago said a big part of the Sinbad character in the play is that his house is being ripped away from him and to have it back would mean the world to him.

“I feel like this play has been so much fun,” said Sago. “I always loved doing comedy plays and this one has such a large and diverse cast. Every character is a little bit different, even the Creeps family. There is a pirate, a butler who is a goat, Nana who bakes gingerbread cookies and cooks liver for dinner.”

Sago added there is an Egyptian prince who comes to visit.

Junior Abrie Wideman is playing the role Sally Creeps and she is the normal one in the family. She is the niece of Sinbad and Tarantula and fits in with the family pretty well.

“She doesn’t seem to notice she is different from everyone and the Creeps thinks she is ugly and not normal because they notice how normal she is and that is unusual to them,” said Wideman. “She has her two friends, Matt and Scooter, and throughout the course of the play you see her character open up a little bit.”

Senior Bailey Sipp will play the role of Maybelle Belfry and she said her character is more of a sidekick to Flora Limetree. Both of them have been really bothered by the Creeps.

“They are weird. They don’t fit in with the general public in that area and they just want them out,” said Sipp. “Their main thing is to get the Creeps out of Edible Falls before the All American Street Contest. They go through all the streets in Edible Falls and Maybelle and Flora look at Pilgrim Road, which is the street the Creeps live on. Flora is dead-set on winning the contest and all she wants to do is get the Creeps out.”

This will be the second play sophomore Abbey Inserra has been in and she is excited to be a part of it. Her character is lady one, which she named Barbra.

“My character is extremely bubbly and happy,” said Inserra. “She really wants to buy the Creeps' house and she us very interested in getting it.”

Inserra said she learns about the history of the home from her tour guide and is eager to hear more.
