Special Pre-Show Concert Will Open Tara Tremendous The Musical Event
Beverly Hills, CA — Wonkybot Studios has found its live-action Valerie the Vampire: multi-talented actress/singer/dancer Allie Jordan Butcher has been cast to play Valerie Van Vleet (aka Valerie the Vampire) in “Spooky Troop The Musical Concert”. This marks Spooky Troop’s debut as a live-action stage property.
Produced by Wonkybot Studios, show time is November 2 at 7 PM. Tickets are now available at wonkybot.com
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 Michael Plahuta, which will be heard for the very first time in the Anniston concert.
“Wonkybot’s mission is to deliver exciting 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.”
Allie Jordan Butcher, a Kentucky native, was chosen by the producers to bring Valerie to life. The 14-year-old performer recently appeared in the Tara Tremendous The Musical concert at Broadway’s Feinstein’s/54 Below in NYC, and has performed at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, TN and the Jenny Wiley Theater in Kentucky.
“We’re thrilled Allie Jordan is portraying Valerie and confidant she will do the character justice,” added St John. “Valerie is a veracious reader, animal rights activist (especially loves bats!), and the level-headed one of the group. Allie’s natural charisma and sweetness are a perfect match — and her incredible singing voice will make Valerie’s songs soar!”
Spooky Troop will be the featured pre-show musical concert leading into the Tara Tremendous The Musical Concert show.
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.
