About this show

Johnny Ten Bones' is energetic and youthful team of local kids, professional actors, designers and musicians hope to bring to life a Leave It To Beaver world where, to quote the show, "What's normal can tend to get rearranged." A typical barn dance turns into a treacherous fiasco where no one, it seems, is safe from the bullies and birdwomen of the fog-filled underground; meanwhile, a dark secret keeps everyone in town on pins and needles. Lydia Conklin, who created the eerie drawings that initially inspired the world of Johnny Ten Bones, describes the current show as a macabre romp into the nightmares of childhood. "It's the exploration of the ghastly fate of a child who never grew up," says Conklin.
