Slaughter Your Shorts is ColdTowne Theater's newest marquee improv comedy show. Slated for Saturdays at 8:30pm in October, the show will weave Nickelodeon's 90s-cult favorite "Salute Your Shorts" with 80s slasher movie conventions, complete with live blood and gore.
The show's concept is the brainchild of ColdTowne Theater veteran performer and faculty member Cody Dearing. Taking a cue from live horror stage shows like Splatter Theater and Evil Dead: The Musical, Dearing knows that fans of the genre will not be happy unless there is blood; the more the better. When asked about the blood in this show, Dearing said, "The venue is intimate enough that every seat in the house is in the splatter zone. Ponchos will be given out to the front row of to help protect the audience from projectile blood, but all audience members are encouraged to dress down for the performance."
Also a fan of "Salute Your Shorts" in his youth, Dearing recently witnessed an Alamo Drafthouse audience sing along to the show's theme in earnest, causing him to realize that the program still holds a place in the hearts of many of his peers. Dearing explains that the idea to do a genre mash-up between a 90s summer camp sitcom and 80s slasher movies came from the simple realization that, "many of the horror films from that time period are set at summer camps surrounding a cast of teenagers who are struggling with making good life choices. The two fit pretty nicely within each other".
Slaughter Your Shorts will run October 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29 at 8:30pm at ColdTowne Theater. Tickets are $10 for general admission, and will be available to purchase in advance at www.ColdTowneTheater.com, or at the box office starting 30 minutes before show time. ColdTowne Theater is located at 4803 Airport Blvd, next to I Luv Video.
