Think puppets are creepy? You're right.
This Halloween weekend, join the wildly eccentric Dr. Thaddeus J. Foster and his misfit troupe of ghoulish performers for a rare and bone-chilling puppet cabaret. Horror and comedy combine as “visually delicious” stories of intrigue, love, and betrayal come to life in a feast of horrific surprises. The decidedly creepy cast of characters includes specters, monsters, demons, and naughty little children. Audiences beware! Nothing is too sacred or too strange for Foster, who reminds us that not every story has a happy ending.
Recommended for adults and teens.
