Creep is the world premiere of Dallas playwright/composer Donald Fowler’s original thriller musical. Exploring many of the dark truths surrounding the fabled “Jack the Ripper,” and metaphorically examining how the individual, when dehumanized, will adapt, or hide from truth in order to survive, Creep is sure to take your breath way. Nationally-acclaimed director Kate Galvin will direct this thrilling season opener. Mature subject matter.

About Lord of the Flies
WaterTower Theatre's professional production of Lord of the Flies will be directed by Kelsey Leigh Ervi. The play is based on the William Golding novel of the same name. When a group of schoolboys survives a catastrophic plane crash, what starts as a desert island adventure quickly descends into a struggle for survival in a darkly sinister world of superstition and immorality. As the boys slowly explore their new-found freedom, their fun and games turn into vicious battles for power. When the group splits into two opposing tribes: one that strives for civility and another that delights in savage violence; the competition escalates into a dangerous, frightening climax. Based on the groundbreaking 1954 novel, this gripping classic looks into the darker sides of human nature where it’s civilization vs. savagery and the mob vs. morality.
