Trillium plans horror night fundraiser


Trillium presents the third annual Saturday Night (un) Dead — A Fund-raiser For Trillium Performing Arts Saturday. The original silent short “Frankenstein” and cult director Ed Wood’s classic “Bride of the Monster” will be screened.

Food, beverages and one raffle ticket are included with admission of $20 for adults, $10 for age 12 and younger. Doors open at 7 p.m.; the show starts at 7:30.

Awards will be given for best overall costume, best women in horror-themed costume and Scream Queen 2013, along with raffle prizes.

Edison Studios made “Frankenstein” in 1910. It was written and directed by J. Searle Dawley, and was the first motion picture adaptation of Mary Shelley’s masterpiece “Frankenstein.” “Bride of the Monster” was produced, directed and co-written in 1955 by Edward D. Wood Jr., who is known for quirky, low-budget films.

Refreshments, hors d’oeuvres, sweets and open bar will be available in the lobby before the films. The women from West Virginia’s will mingle to “spook” up the conversation. Costumes are encouraged.

The event will be at Lewis Theatre, 113 N. Court St., Lewisburg.

For tickets or information, call 304-645-3003, go to or follow this event on Facebook.
