This October, The Desultory Theatre Club teams up with Hole In The Wall Theater to bring you…
The Halloween Massacr-ade, featuring Elmwood Productions‘ award-winning puppet horror film, HEAD.
The evening of terror begins with a screening of the film HEAD, followed by music by The Super Scenics. A cash bar and other treats will be available to keep your thirst and hunger at bay. (We don’t want you eating the other guests, after all…)
It’s not a Halloween party without costumes! The theme for the night is Summer Camp Killers v. Counselors. Dress up as your favorite Slasher (or create one of your own) or one of the Camp Counselors they love to stalk and you may take home the prize for best costume!
When: Friday, October 21, 2016 – 7 pm – 12 midnight
Admission: $10 at the door
Please note that this is not a BYOB event.
