Spooktacular!

Our new Halloween variety show is family-friendly fun for all ages. The show features happy ghosts, Frankenstein, the Purple People Eater, a not-so-scary spider and more….and of course, no Halloween show would be complete without a witch! Special care is taken to make this production a kid-friendly experience.
