The next show from the writer and director of this year's smash hit: "Varsity Cheerleader Werewolves LIVE From Outer Space"
THE ADVENTURES OF DEX DIXON: PARANORMAL DICK A live, cabaret style, Noir Horror Comedy Musical!
"Dex Dixon; When the Average Dick Won't Do"
Dex Dixon, a hard-boiled paranormal investigator at the beginning of the end of his career, lives in Our Fair City, a gritty urban jungle just across the murky river from Night Side, a city populated by the movie monsters of old. It's been ten years since Dex was exiled from Night Side, when a mysterious woman arrives requiring his special skills and he finds himself returning to his old haunts, and an old flame. The Adventures of Dex Dixon is a Film Noir, Horror, Comedy Musical filled with puns, guns, vixens, vamps, monsters, music, and mayhem and yes, Puppets!
Dex Dixon is a screenplay which was originally designed to lampoon the cliff-hanger serials of yesteryear, mash them up with film noir/pulp detective stories and the popular Universal movie monsters to create a unique storyline. The screenplay has been very well received, but the complexity of the story, makeup and prop requirements, have made it very hard to find financing. After sharing the script with peers and producers, we shot the first Episode as a proof of concept and pitch tool which has been featured at area comic conventions and genre festivals. We have been developing this piece for a long time, and now, following the success we had with "Varsity Cheerleaders" we felt it was time that Dex Dixon got his moment to shine.
