Tricklock Company returns to the Albuquerque stage after a highly-successful international tour with its latest creation, Belladonna. Belladonna is a beautiful but naive young woman whose scientist father has just invented a potion that brings ultimate power to the drinker.  After witnessing her father's kidnapping by a cruel and merciless dictator who wants the power for his own, Belladonna finds herself crippled by the Curse of the Four Witches Tongues, making her only able to speak in the lyrics of four female rockstars of the1980's. Accompanied by her loyal but suffocating sidekick, Belladonna embarks on a journey to rescue her father.  Along the way, in a gritty, volatile rock n' roll bar, she accidentally crashes into her One True Love and tries to convince him to help her.  In the end, will she choose to make a horrible sacrifice in order to save the world?  If only she could speak in her own words…
Using masks, choreography, original songs, a healthy dose of bloody Grand Guignol, and calling on the spirits and music of Stevie Nicks, Joan Jett, and other mavens of rock, Tricklock brings to life an entire world of magic and mayhem.   Belladonna is a twisted fable, a rock n' roll, glitzy fairytale turned nightmare where happy endings are negotiable.  This new original work by Tricklock Company asks, what is the relationship between sacrifice and gain, and how are either justified?  
Created and performed by the award-winning and internationally-acclaimed Tricklock Company, Belladonna will show for three weeks at UNM's State-of-the-art Theatre X.  Special Student Rush tickets will be available every night FIVE MINUTES prior to curtain.  All UNM students with valid ID will receive a Rush Ticket of $5.  For More Information  on this show and on Tricklock Company, visit <>
