Uncouth, absurd, and wickedly tongue-in-cheek, Coeurage Theatre Company presents the Los Angeles premiere of Tony Award-winner Trey Parker's Cannibal! The Musical. From the creators of South Park and The Book of Mormon comes this western spoof telling the tale of a pack of miners en route to the promised land of Colorado, led by the state's only convicted cannibal, Alfred Packer. Replete with puppets, blood, song, dance, and Parker's signature crassness, Cannibal! The Musical is guaranteed to delight and offend. The cast will feature (in alphabetical order) Mike Brady, Ryan Brady, Brian Cannady, Gregory Crafts, Mikey De Lara, Travis Dixon, Josh Hoover, Ashley Kane, Jason Peter Kennedy, Scott Kruse, Peter Larney, Kari Lee, Gregory Nabours, Kurt Quinn, Kalena Ranoa, Christine Sinacore, and Joe Tomasini.
Scenic design is by JR Bruce, lighting design is by director Ladd, and costume design is by Kara McLeod. Musical direction is by Gregory Nabours, choreography is by Carly Wielstein, and fight choreography is by TJ Marchbank. Stage manager is Risa Kurosaki.
Cannibal! The Musical will play two preview performances on Saturday, October 25 at 8pm and Thursday, October 30 at 8pm, and opening is set for Halloween night, Friday, October 31 with performances at 8pm and midnight.
