Episode 12.5: Treehouse of Horror (Halloween Special)

Monday 31st October 2016 at The Wardrobe Theatre.

It’s Halloween in Newtown and Big Dick Johnson has invited Reg up into his hand-built treehouse to tell each other horror stories (the titles of which had been suggested by the audience):
“Silence of The Newtown Lambs” – PC Pablo catches a murderess with the help of Hannibal Fred!
“Honey, I Shrunk The Simpkins” – Harold builds a lazer which shrinks his uncle Simpkins who then goes on a miniature murderous rampage!
“Harold The Friendly Ghost” – In Medieval Newtown, Harold was killed during the construction of the new clock town and he haunts his father, Spencer, to wreak murderous revenge!
“The Clown Who Came To Tea” – Dressed as a creepy clown, Billy terrorises the Pitts family!
As midnight strikes, Reg is horrified to learn that every year Big Dick invites a different member of the community to his treehouse where he beheads them, hollows out their skull and puts a candle inside!

Memorable Moments:
– Having been shrunk by the lazer, tiny Simpkins being represented by a 3 inch bear puppet holding a huge shotgun.
– Pablo encouraging the ghost Harold to get undressed one item at a time to prove he is really Harold.
– Reg’s trying to make up for one of his underwhelming horror stories by waving his hands and cooing “Oooooo!”

Will these spooky encounters have any kind of effect on the wider community?
Can Reg escape from Dick’s treehouse of terror alive?
Where these tales just stories, or was there some truth in the horror happenings?
