Stage Fright

We rate the fear factor of local shows this month. 
Black Cat Lost Postmortem The Texas Chainsaw Musical Sweeney Todd
Theater Ninjas
Oct. 24-Nov. 9

Three people attempt to make sense of impending death through ritual, song, poetry, silent film and memoir. And yes, a bewitching black cat makes an appearance in this spiritual thinker.

Chagrin Valley Little Theatre
Thru Oct. 19

A floating table is just one of the scares during an eerie seance in a Connecticut castle that becomes a mysterious whodunit when a houseguest attempts to murder the host.

Blank Canvas Theatre
Oct. 11-Nov.2

Audiences are part of the nightly comic carnage caused by serial killer Eddy Gee as more than 20 gallons of blood are spewed into the "splatter zone" seating section.

Great Lakes Theater
Oct. 4-Nov. 2

Theatergoers may want to avoid shepherd's pie after watching three to four gallons of blood get spilled from the necks of nearly a dozen victims, whose remains get ground into meat pies.

*Bat scale out of five.
