2010-Night at the Wax Museum

NIGHTATTHE

The hysterical meets the historical in this comic romp through the wackiest wax museum in history!  School’s out for summer, but not for six unlucky students who don’t know much about history — they have to re-take the class in summer school.  First year teacher Heather Fairchild (Meredith Schellin) has arranged for them to help her two aunts set up a new wax museum as a class project.  Though the students’ eyes glaze over with boredom, there’s a twinkle in the wax figures’ eyes when a mysterious incantation from the back of Cleopatra’s(HannahMobley) bracelet brings them to life!  King Henry VIII (Eli Vida) finds himself smitten with Cleopatra, making his queen, Anne Boleyn (Deidre Gilson), furious.  If she can just not lose her head, John Adams (Prescott) is there to serve as her divorce attorney!  When Butch Cassidy (Rick Davenport), Madame Ching (Kirsten Torp) and a bevy of lady pirates show up (Anna Johnson, Sarah Hinesley, Callie Shehorn), everybody’s out for one thing — treasure!  Supposedly, there’s a mighty valuable one hidden in the museum!  It’s a wild goose chase to find it, with a greedy museum landlord and her bumbling son joining in the mad search.  And why is Lizzie Borden (Brittany Brown) lurking in the shadows, since the aunts say they never had a wax figure of her?!
