Quotes & Highlights

“As the hopelessly out-of-place-in-any-world Chicklet, Pelletier is an absolute scream. His twisted facial expressions as Chicklet as well as his over-the-top, high status dominatrix bent on world domination are priceless.” —Boston Event Insider

“Joey Pelletier as Chicklet, Elizabeth Battey as Berdine and Audrey Lynn Sylvia as Mrs. Forrest rocked the casbah.” New England Theatre Geek


Please note that children ages 15 or younger will not be allowed into the show due to its coarse language and overtly sexual themes. 

_Psycho Beach Party will be directed by Barbara DiGirolamo (MilkMilkLemonade_, Heart & Dagger Productions) with assistance from Mikey DiLoreto (The Revenants, Happy Medium Theatre). Long-time collaborators (and Heart & Dagger Artistic Associates), DiGirolamo and DiLoreto are no strangers to campy fun or parody. The cast will be led by Joey C. Pelletier (Dog Sees God, Happy Medium Theatre) as Chicklet Forrest and features Heart & Dagger and Happy Medium regulars; Elizabeth Battey (Berdine), Barbara DiGirolamo (Nicky), Mikey DiLoreto (Provoloney), Lauren Foster (Bettina Barnes), Amy Meyer (Marvel Ann), Daniel J. Raps (Yo Yo) and Audrey Lynn Sylvia (Mrs. Forrest). We’re also so pleased to welcome Francisco Marquez (Star Cat) and Johnny Quinones (Kanaka) to the party!
