The Story:
In 1986, shortly after teen roller derby girl, Staci, is moved to a small town to salvage her future, a parasitic alien race crash lands in the woods and possess her High School's Varsity Cheerleaders. Now it's up to Staci, the town's bad boy, Dean, and their ancient grandparents to save the school, their town, and the world.

About the Show:
In 2011 Writer/Director and Producer, Steve Coker wrote this fun sci-fi screenplay. Having a background in live theatre, Steve couldn't resist the opportunity to produce a cabaret version of the show featuring sexy cheerleaders, rebellious youth, evil aliens, 80s music, cabaret dance numbers and puppets!

The show stars MAD TV's Brooke Totman as Staci. Rounding out the cast are local film and stage actors, Jon Ashley Hall, Ira Kortum, Jaime Langton, Illya Torres, Carly Ingebo Schroeder, Heather Harlan, Megan Armand, Dug Martell, Wynee Hu, Maryanne Glazebrook, Cyndi Rhodes, Ithica Tell and Dennis Fitzpatrick.

The Portland Mercury had this to say about the show:

B-Movie Basement
Varsity Cheerleader Werewolves Live from Outer Spaceby Courtney Ferguson

TROUBLED TEEN Staci has just moved to a small Washington town to live with her folksy sheriff's deputy of a fatherfrom there, Varsity Cheerleader Werewolves Live from Outer Space dishes out a host of campy tongue-in-cheek tropes that echo Twilight, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and '80s B-movie sci-fi romps. This is not high theater, true. The show started off as an enhanced read-through for director Steve Coker's film script that he fleshed out with actors and sound effects, which grew into the cabaret-style production it is now.
The production played to a packed crowd in January at the Rialto's basement bar, the Jack London, and now it's back for a one-off night and a longer run planned for April at the Funhouse Lounge. And basically Varsity Cheerleader is perfect bar theaterit's clumsy and likeable and full of opportunities to drunkenly cheer (I can only assume this since I saw a dress rehearsal at an elementary school, which is a very dissonant place to see cheerleaders in lingerie). The shenanigans are held together by a great straight-faced performance by Brooke Totman as Staci, and there are a lot of shenanigans: stripping cheerleaders, scooter-riding bad boys, hillbillies, a creepy puppet cat, and an Amazonian alien commander. With Varsity Cheerleader's 70 minutes of fun goof, it's way more bang than you'd normally get at a bar for five bucks.
Portland Mercury. March 27th, 2013.
