Chelsea Stardust has a are knack for short horror. She simply knows how to make every minute count. If you’ve seen any of her shorts (especially UNDER THE BED) then you know she has a knack for fright. Now you better prepare yourself for something new…SLASHED!
SLASHED! The Musical tells the story of a handful of would-be camp counselors gearing up for the grand re-opening of Camp Freedom (better known to the locals as CAMP DOOM) where, just a decade earlier, Little Peetie Jergins fell into a bonfire while the counselors were too busy drinking, dancing, smoking and screwing to pay attention to his screams. Now Peetie’s unquiet spirit roams the woods, punishing those who engage in the behaviors that lead to his demise. And soon the lake will run red with the blood of his victims. Set in 1983, SLASHED! The Musical, is a love-letter to the not only the summer-camp Slasher genre, but also to the time period. The seven original songs are an ode to 1980’s Top40 radio and the story uses and subverts genre clichés for comedic effect. Seven original songs. Seven Kills. One hell of a fun time! Coming to Hollywood Fringe Fest this June!
