Haunted Hillbilly is a theatre-show-event, a cowboy carnival caper with a big ole dollop of deep country. It’s a cautionary tale, about the rise and fall of the Lonely Boy, a guileless bumpkin turned supernova superstar by a meddling, impeccable vampire couturier. Yeah, you heard us. It’s lap steels, denim, booze, hadocol, heartbreak, blood and guts. (Haunted Hillbilly Facebook Event)
