La Strada Ensemble Theater is excited and ready for opening night tomorrow! Join us for an evening of horrifying shorts...about Ghosts, Retribution, Murderer, Dracula and the Jersey Devil. The evening will consist of:

CLEMENTINE
by Thomas Ryan Ward
Directed by A.J. Ciccotelli

A young boy and his family are plunged into a ghost story as things that go bump in the night are clearly coming from the barn in Clementine by Thomas Ryan Ward.  Based on a true story.

FATE FILES
by Dennis Gribben
Directed by Thomas Ryan Ward

A man awakes from a nightmare to find himself being interviewed by a friend who had died on if he is going to be cast into hell in Fate Files by Dennis Gribben.

AVANT-GARDE FILMMAKER
by A.J. Ciccotelli
Directed by Dennis Gribben

We all love movies, some of us want to make them – some of us would kill to be in the spot light.  The director wants to make sure everyone gets their hands dipped in blood for their art.

ENCOUNTERS
by A.J. Ciccotelli & Darren DeBari
Directed by Dennis Gribben

A young woman breaking free from a disastrous marriage, and a killer of young women on the loose, cross paths.

DOWN FOR THE COUNT
by Gerry Ringwald
Directed by Thomas Ryan Ward

Dracula and Renfield have been scaring up the kiddies in his castle in Transylvania for centuries but the only thing scarier maybe a young Hollywood Studio Executive who wants to close the deal.

THE DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND
by Darren DeBari
directed by A.J. Ciccotelli

A hot shot reporter goes off searching for the Jersey Devil in the Pine Barrens where he roams; he might have bitten off more than the Jersey Devil could chew.
