Nobody can tell that under the haunting and spooky masks of eerie clowns are four of Roswell’s young talents. Samantha Thorsted, Jada Wilson, Emmah McPherson and Zelia Santos stole the show at the premiere of Neverland Theatre Company’s “Something Wicked This Way Comes” on Friday. Though the four young actresses had no lines, their appearance alone darkened the atmosphere of the Liberty Club that provided the stage for the spooky play. Actor Peter Powell as the carnival director was well cast and clearly enjoyed himself trying to tempt the good people of the small town Green Town, Illinois, to succumb to the evil.
The main characters, Minnie Degrout as Jim Nightshade and and Madeline Hicks as Will Halloway were convincing in their desperation to save everybody from the evil carnival.
Colin Butts as Mr. Electro put the horror into the horror show up to the end.
