The Worst Little Podcast – S4 E31

It’s finally October – our favorite time of year! The days shorten and cool and thoughts turn to the warm glowing eyes of demons and monsters. It’s the spooky time! To celebrate this fact, Vaude Villain Entertainment has brought the second greatest musical adventure known to man to a Reno Stage. From Vaude Villain’s production of Evil Dead: The Musical we have co-directors John Frederick and Ashley Marie James (an Evil Tree) and Jeff Bentley (Jake) in the studio to talk about the show and Reno theater!

We also take a call from Evan Buckley Harris, the production’s Ash, while he was on the road. That was fun and totally not awkward at all! The cast is a fun tight knit group who really kill the performance. Full disclosure: I’m also a part of Vaude Villain Entertainment and, as you are likely aware of, a producer of this show. Other than sitting in on a voice rehearsal and seeing a couple rehearsal short videos of movement rehearsals, I hadn’t seen this production at all until opening night and it. Was. A. BLAST. We’ve had sold out shows so far and you should really do yourself a favor and follow the link and get yourself presale tickets – this is a hot ticket right now in the Reno nightlife scene.

Lots of laughs, little drinking and a brand new theme song this episode! Our second season might be winding down, but we’re still coming at you full force! This week we have musical powerhouse, John Frederick, and photographer/model, Elsie Marie, in studio with us. We forgot to take pictures this week so you’ll have to make do with acual nice photos of our guests from their respective FB pages. Elsie was a guest on our show last year and has had a crazy year of becoming a spokesmodel and Reno Tahoe Tonight contributor, being super involved with photography and the Reno culture, AND undergoing a series of surgeries! That’s right – surgeries, as in plural. Listen to the mid segment of the show to find out more about her trials and tribulations. There is a benefit for her that you MAY have heard about – Elsie After All – that will be this Saturday Jan 19 at Swill Coffee and Wine (6pm-9pm) and Chapel Tavern (10pm-2am).

John Frederick is one of the featured performers of the event at Swill, AND a super new friend. This guy is amazing and fun and talented. He’s got his fingers in theater, and music, and organizing, and …other stuff! Really, even fighting off a creepin’ crud, Frederick has a killer full sound in his singing voice. He played a bunch of originals, including – that’s right – a WLP EXCLUSIVE listen to a brand new song that had no name, but now it does (because we just give and give ande give here on the podcast).

We also MISS a phone call from BJ Johnson, Washington-based comedian that will be appearing at the Reno Tahoe Comedy Club this Friday and Saturday night. Once we get this phone thing worked out, we promise the phone interviews will be better! We also have an Open Mic roll call that is completely confusing – see if you can keep up, there will be a quiz next week.

Anyways… Thanks for Listening!!!
