When Rhonda Wooley was thinking of a show to close the 2011-12 Gordon College Theatre Season, she had a few requirements.’I wanted something lite, funny and a bit seasonal,’ the assistant professor of theatre said. ‘I haven’t done a farce in a long time, so Psycho fit the bill.’The play is a hilarious martini of Gidget, Frankie and Annette beach movies shaken with a twist of Hitchcock suspense. It tells the story of Chicklet Forrest, a teenage tomboy who desperately wants to be part of the surf crowd on Malibu Beach in 1962. One thing getting in her way is her unfortunate tendency toward multiple personalities ‘“ a sassy check out girl, an elderly radio talk show hostess, a male model named Steve and the accounting firm of Edelman and Edelman.Chicklet’s most dangerous alter ego is a sexually voracious vixen, Ann Bowman, who has nothing less than world domination on her mind.The cast includes, Matthew Bozeman as Yo Yo; Dominique McDuffie as Dee Dee; Travis Shipley as Nicky; Whitley Dismuke as Provoloney; Dillan Smith as Star Cat; Dusty Cramer as Chicklet; Gavin Brown as Kanaka; Chelsea Thompson as Berdine; Gara Pless as Marvel Ann; Caitlin McDaniel as Mrs. Forrest and Jessica Gates as Bettina Barnes.Shows run Wednesday, April 18 through Saturday, April 21 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 22 at 2 p.m. Doors open 30 minutes prior to each show. Tickets are available at the door and are $7 for adults, $6 for senior citizens, $4 each for groups of 10 or more. This production is suggested for mature audiences only.
