Special Pre-Show Concert Will Open Tara Tremendous The Musical Event

Beverly Hills, CA — Veteran stage actor Keith Owens has joined Wonkybot’s presentation of Stewart St John’s Spooky Troop The Musical Concert as Mayor Tullubub, the ghostly politician who presides over the small netherworld town of Asterlin. The special pre-show event will lead into the Tara Tremendous The Musical Concert at the Anniston Performing Arts Center in Anniston, Alabama.

Produced by Wonkybot Studios, show time is November 2 at 7 PM. Tickets are now available at wonkybot.com

“Keith is the perfect choice to play Mayor Tullubub,” said Stewart St John, creator, writer and co-composer with Michael Plahuta of the music for Spooky Troop. “We were looking for someone who could really nail the quirky personality that embodies the Tullubub character.  When we saw Keith’s audition tape, we knew he was the one!”

Owens, a resident of Gadsden, Alabama, recently appeared in “Smokey Joe’s Cafe” and “The New Mel Brooks Musical: Frankenstein”. Past performances include roles in “Oklahoma”, “The Fantasticks” and “Mame”.

Created by Stewart St John, Spooky Troop is the story of seven supernatural friends who want to make a difference in their world, a place where monsters, witches, ghosts and ghouls really exist – and are feuding with each other. The Spooky Troop friends — Stewart (The Sorcerer), Valerie (The Vampire), Willie (The Werewolf), Delilah (The Demon), Zianna (The Zombie), Todd (The Oddbot) and Michael (The Monster) — are determined to show their racially divided realm the power of coming together… even if the world isn’t ready to embrace such a concept.

St John adapted the story for the stage and composed brand new songs with musical partner and Wonkybot Music Director Michael Plahuta, which will be heard for the very first time in the Anniston concert.

“Wonkybot’s mission is to deliver exiting stories with positive themes for kids and families,” said Todd Fisher, COO, Wonkybot Studios and concert producer. “Spooky Troop is an exciting adventure story filled with positive themes about tolerance, believing in yourself and the power of family and friendship. We couldn’t be more proud to introduce the Spooky Troop to the Alabama audience.”

Wonkybot chose Anniston, Alabama to launch the concert because of the enormous support, warmth and love the project has garnered from the community, which represents the message of what Wonkybot and its projects are all about.

The 90-minute musical evening is presented by Wonkybot Studios with support from CAST Theater, CharACTer Entertainment, Kimberlite Productions, The Music Box and Knox Concert Series. Produced by Todd Fisher, Stewart St John, and Michael Plahuta. Co-Produced by Emmalie Whitney.
