There will be plenty of villains and heroes to cheer for when a benefit wrestling show comes to Crown Point.
Performance Arts Connection, a Moriah-based company, will present a night of mayhem at the Crown Point fire house Saturday, March 30, at 6 p.m.
There will be no admission fee, although donations will accepted for Lydia McLaughlin, a Crown Point child suffering from Leukemia, and for Soldiers Fighting Overseas, an organization that sends care packages to U.S. military personnel serving aboard.
Since the show will be the night before Easter, the Easter Bunny will make an appearance.
“The Easter Bunny will be our special guest for the kids,” said Justin Gaddor, one of the event organizers.
The main event in Crown Point will be a “Triple Threat Match” between World Champion Supernova, Crusher Bigelow and Berracuda. Supernova is portrayed by Cutting, Crusher Bigelow by Bill Welch and Berracuda by Mike Gaddor.
Also wrestling will be Jacked Vegas, aka Matt Gaddor; Scrap Iron, played by Justin Gaddor; Justin Destructible, portrayed by Andrew Breeyear; Senior Grande, played by Tyler Simpson; Bob Wire, aka Bob Carr; Bonecollector, portrayed by Dan Gibbs; Suave, played by Jeff Clarke; and Matt Cross, played by Ethan Roberts.
Announcing the show will be Wyatt Jackson, played by Tom Haskell.
Performance Arts Connection is patterned after television’s pro wrestling.
“We’ve been doing it for the last 10 years,” explained Mike Gaddor. “We were all in drama club in high school and love acting — and we love pro wrestling. It’s just a lot of fun.”
While the group has been “wrestling” for a decade, it made its public debut in October 2010 at a cystic fibrosis benefit held at the Grover Hills Deli. A ring was set up in the parking lot and more than 100 people turned out for the free show. More than $700 was donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
