A Play With Music by Jay Eddy

Directed by Shamus

Happy and Sweetness are a happy couple! Until they move to Swamp-land and Happy’s ever-intensifying obsession with the local alligators threatens to eat them alive. One part door farce, one part monster movie, Alligator-a-Phobia in 3D! is an absurd horror-comedy about singing alligators, dancing swamps, isolation, and the fear of stepping outside your house.

A BU New Play Initiative production, produced by Boston Playwrights’ Theatre and the Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Theatre.

Featuring Zach Fontanez as Big Mack, Leah Kreitz as Happy, Katherine Perry as Sweetness, and Sam Plattus as Teeny. The ensemble includes Ernesto Garrido Gonzalez, Kendall Mcshane, Maurie Moore, and Savannah Scott.

The creative team includes Scenic Designer/Props Artisan Ami Okazaki, Costume Designer Michael O’Herron, Lighting Designer Slick Jorgensen, Music Director/Sound Designer Jay Eddy, Production Stage Manager Fanni Horvath, and Production Assistant Maggie Kearnan. Fight direction is provided by Ben Heath.
