Come in costume for the Halloween performance!

Music by Brian and Erin Schey

Book and Lyrics by Thom Bishop

Blood and murder set the stage this Halloween as The Palace Theater presents One October Midnight: A New Musical Thriller. Based on the grotesque, horrific and heart-wrenching tales of Edgar Allan Poe this whodunit murder mystery musical promises a night of suspense, terror and lost love.

Follow 1940’s gumshoe Inspector Wilson on his manic chase through the haunted streets of Baltimore to capture the infamous October 9th Serial Killer. With songs inspired by Poe’s poems and short stories such as The Bells, The Tell-Tale Heart and The Fall of the House of Usher, this new musical explores the supernatural hallucinations brought on by the killer’s steady decent into madness.

One October Midnight was first presented to sold out crowds in June 2013 as part of The Finger Lakes Musical Theater Festival’s new musical series, The PiTCH. Musically inspired by the preludes and nocturnes of Chopin and Rachmaninoff, One October Midnight brings the pit orchestra to the stage as cast members accompany one another on flute, baritone sax and organ. Original graphic novel-style projections by Montreal-based artist Lateef Martin, drop the audience clues along the way.

Book and music by Skaneateles native Erin (Humphrey) Schey and Brian Schey, with book and lyrics by Thom Bishop. Starring Josh Wilmot as Inspector Wilson and Meghan Jo Clary as Sergeant Munson and featuring Jackie Aberi (Skaneateles High School) , Lillian Boberg (Auburn High School), Mike Clark (Marcellus High School), Steve Condie, Ricky Ducane (AHS), Stephanie Figer, Morgan McIlvain (AHS), Nikki Schwarz, Alex Spear (SHS), Ryan Terhune (SHS) and Caitlin Wilmot.

A liberal dose of Polical Humor
Saturday, January 8, 2011 at 8:00pm

“An astute, funny political observer who loosed his
darts in a tone that remained suave and smilingly
ironic.” New York Times

Scott Blakeman is “The top political comedian working in
New York today”(NBC-TV). Scott performs regularly at
Laughing Liberally shows in New York and he hosted
Breaking Convention: A Liberal Dose of Political Humor
in Denver and St. Paul during the 2008 Conventions.
Blakeman was a guest panelist on MSNBC’s live coverage of
the 2010 White House Correspondents Dinner. Scott appears
regularly as a liberal pundit on The Strategy Room, a live
webcast at FoxNews.com, where he takes a pragmatic
approach to try to find common ground with those he disagrees with.
Scott hosts a political comedy talk show The End Of The Week As We
Know It at The Tank in New York, with a panel of liberal and
conservative pundits. Blakeman tours with Palestinian-American
comedian Dean Obeidallah in Standup for Peace: The Two Comedian
