Bunnicula, based on the children’s book by James and Deborah Howe, is the first book in a series written by James Howe in 1979.
It is a dark and stormy night, and Chester (the family cat) and Harold (the family dog) sit waiting for their owners to return home from the movies. When the Monroes finally get home, they come bearing a surprise: they’ve found a bunny. But this is no ordinary rabbit. When the family’s produce starts turning white, Chester thinks he knows what’s causing the fantastic phenomenon — or maybe Chester’s imagination is getting the better of him. Singing and dancing their way through this mystery, the furry friends find room in their hearts — and in their home — for one very unique bunny.
TWU Drama’s production of Bunnicula is directed by Cristin Thomas. The cast includes graduate students Ariana Cook, Taylor Reed and Shane Strawbrigde, and undergraduate students Jonathan Charles, Jacob Drum and Chloe Pritchett. TWU staff and students share design responsibilities: Emily Johns is music director; set design is by Redbud Theater technical director Michael Stephens; Claire Watson designed the lighting; Hayley Yates designed the properties; and Chelsea Reeves designed the sound. Angela Phillips serves as puppeteer. Kathy Cox is the stage manager.
