Iowa City – The Iowa City Community Theatre’s production of Charles Busch’s Pyscho Beach Party open this weekend. ICCT describes it as “A fun combo of Hitchcock drama and teen surfer film, this cheeky play tells the story of Chicklet, a perky Malibu girl who loves the beach and wants the boys to teach her to surf. But this teenage tomboy has a dark side: a tendency toward split personalities, including the voracious vixen Ann Bowman, who has her mind set on world domination. Equal parts parody and campy comedy, this play offers a cockeyed look at those classic sun-drenched films of the 1960s.”
