On Thursday 21st October 2010, at Jack Thomspon’s Hotel Gearin, the Katoomba audience was treated to a very spooky Halloween Theatresports® Ham Stakes show.
Two gothic teams lined up and pitted themselves against eachother; ‘Black Magic’ and ‘Hitchock’.
They played a series of challenging games and gave the audience more than enough reasons to hold onto their seats and frighten the vampyres away with rib-breaking laughter and applause.
The Katoomba audience got in on the act too, providing terrific sound-effects for a howling storm and other terrible noises. Two victims were selected to join the players on-stage too.
The points being tallied up at the end of the show, showed that team ‘Black Magic’ (lead by their fearless captain Jimmy Tredinnick ) were just that little bit too powerful for the ‘Hitchcock’ team, winning but only 2 points.
Special mention needs to be made of the night’s very special guest Edvard, our very own Igor-esque slave who provided some excellent additional scary action throughout the show.
All in all, everyone had a great time… here’s to the next show at the Gearin; Thursday 18th November 2010.
