Gilda Shedstecker Presents! Whatever Happened to Baby Jane What happens when a child star fades into oblivion as her sister achieves a stellar film career? Betrayal, revenge, and murder! Starring in the 1962 cult classic come-to-stage diva roles of Joan Crawford's and Bette Davis's Hudson sisters Blanche and Baby Jane are two of Gilda's favorite sons: the accomplished Craig May and proficient Roman Feemster. Fur is going to fly as these gentlemen bring two of the most iconic roles ever to life with a definite skew. Talk about twisted sisters! Jaclynn Dietz adds her touch as the Hudson's ill-fated maid Elvira, with Patrice Rittenhouse and Holly Barstow Riley aptly portraying the neighboring admirer Mrs. Bates and her hip daughter Abby. David Bowen vitalizes the role of Edwin Flagg, the musician hired to revive Jane's career, and Ellen Fox plays Edwin's mother. Adding to the free-for-all are able actors Benjamin Seeley and Manuel Halkias, and Gilda Shedstecker Presents! is happy to introduce Grace Worley and Paige Worley as young Blanche and Baby Jane in her juvenile prime. GSP! is delighted to bring another premier to this area with our adaptation by Dale Gutzman, who created this parody and homage for Milwaukee's Off the Wall theatre company. Although those familiar with the film will get the biggest bang, as a comedic horror, there is plenty for everyone to enjoy. If you like to laugh and like to scream, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane will not disappoint you! Performances are October 17, 18, 24, and 25 at 8:00 pm with a special midnight performance on Halloween night, October 31. Director is Doug Tennant with right hand Linda Alexander-Radak stage managing.
