1999 Sweetback Productions, Chicago, IL. Six-week run.

A Reasonable Facsimile Theatre Company announces their first ever co-production with Corn Productions. ‘Gator Bait opens at The Cornservatory, 4210 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago, IL, on July 24, 2014, running Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. through August 23, 2014. ARFTCo. and Corn can’t resist bringing you this hilarious send-up of that infamous 70′s film cult classic, ‘Gator Bait. Popular Playboy Playmate Claudia Jenning’s star turn ensured this action-packed, and badly acted film would never be forgotten. ARFTCo. first mounted ‘Gator Bait in 2004, with a successful, extended run. Tickets are $10.00 on Thursdays, $15.00 on Fridays and Saturdays.

Bayou Wildcat, Desiree, lives deep in the swamp, hunting gators to feed her family. Her swamp slut sexuality lures Ben Trapper and Billy, the Sheriff’s son, deep into the swamp searching for some Bayou bung. When the evil Trapper family murder Desiree’s sister, an old-time, full-on, Southern-style blood feud begins and the death toll starts to climb. Will Desiree be able to avenge her family? Will T.J. Trapper ever figure out which of his sons has an IQ over 50? Will the Sheriff ever admit his son’s a little light in the work boots? Does gator really taste like chicken? Come along with ARFTCo. and Corn on this wickedly funny and politically incorrect romp through the Southland! You’ll be ashamed you laughed so hard!

‘Gator Bait is directed by Michael Buino, written by David C. Hayes, with additional material by Mike Spiegel and Tina Haglund. Stage-managed by Carol Brown, costumed by Tina Haglund, prop design by Rania Baxter, publicity by Steve Hickson and graphic design by Seth Wanta.
