New macabre twists keep Elgin's Nightmare on Chicago Street fresh

Save the date, save the city.

Saturday evening is Elgin's annual Nightmare on Chicago Street zombie-themed street party, and this year those involved with putting on the event have come up with quite a few fresh twists to keep the gathering from seeming like the movie "Groundhog Day."

In "It Came From the Lab" Pawlowski is Mr. Drakeson, a very curmudgeonly boss, and also appears as a local bum. Metzger said the plot involves Roxi, a dizzy secretary, who accidentally spills a liquid from a lab on the floor, which her dog laps up.

"The dog begins to slowly grow bigger until he leaves the building and wreaks havoc on the city," Metzger said. "It is up to the scientist to create an antidote to save the city and return Mr. Nibbles to his normal size, all the while winning the heart of Roxi in the end."
