I am so excited that Along Comes Mary has been invited to not only attend Eek at The Greek in Griffith Park’s Greek Theatre, but also give away FOUR TICKETS so you can join in with me, too. Here are some of the things I cannot wait to see when I go on October 27th, which also happens to be the day after my birthday
1) Wicked: A Fable for Orchestration.
As a special treat for fans like myself of the hit Broadway musical Wicked, which is the amazing prequel to The Wizard of Oz, the orchestra will present the first performance on the West Coast of Stephen Schwartz’s new symphonic suite, Wicked: A Fable for Orchestra……they had me in at that.
2) The Orchestra.
This family friendly event featuring the 60-piece Symphony In The Glen Orchestra with Maestro Arthur B. Rubinstein will present a creepy collection of frightening favorites including: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and Manuel de Falla’s Ritual Fire Dance.
3) Edgar Allan Poe will be there.
Sort of. The program will showcase the return of Poe’s “The Tell-tale Heart” with special guest narrator, critically acclaimed actor Stacy Keach. You cannot get much more Halloween than a great reading of a Poe tale.
4) Watch the kids trick or treat.
Adding to the festivities, The Greek Theatre’s front plaza will be transformed into a “Trick-or-Treat Village,” welcoming families to bring their children for safe trick-or-treating and Halloween activities from 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM, including crafts, face painting and a costume contest. The costume contest will begin at 4:00 pm in the front plaza with the finale taking place during intermission on The Greek Theatre’s main stage which will be Emceed by LA’s very own KTLA 5 Morning News feature reporter Allie Mac Kay. Mac Kay calls her segments, “the fluff in between car chases, death and destruction” — and she would have it no other way. She gets to highlight businesses, events and people all over Southern California every morning.
5) Have fun before 10-31.
What a great way for the family to have a spook-tacular evening out for Halloween, complete with trick or treating, before the 31st. You will get to celebrate 2 times this year!
