About this show

Are the mid winter blues getting you down? Come uptown to The Bronx for a good old-fashioned beach party with a surprising twist! Psycho Beach Party is the hilarious, campy, gender-bending thrill ride by charles Busch, that takes 1960's beach party movies and Hitchcock psychological thrillers and serves them up on the same platter of genuine hysterics! The time is 1962! The place is Malibu Beach and all young Chicklet Forrest wants to do is learn how to hang ten with the great Kanaka, the king of the surfers, and his band of merry beach bums. Once Chicklet's dreams finally start becoming reality, however, an evil alter ego emerges and threatens to destroy her and her friends' lives forever! Psycho Beach Party is written by Charles Busch and directed by Lisa Lynds. It is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
