“ABSOLUTELY HALLOWEEN is ABSOLUTELY GREAT!” raves showmag.com. “An absolute family treat!” exclaims The Tolucan Times. It’s the classic Family Theatre Halloween musical for Kids 2 to 102 – the heartwarming Rudie-DeCarlo tale of the aptly-named Candy, a sweet young girl who learns some surprising lessons about life, love, laughter, and sugar, from a delightful array of characters who take her on a magical All Hallow’s Eve adventure. Help Cattypuss, Patty Patches, Stuffy Steve, Lester the Jester and Fifika the French Fortune Teller happily save Halloween for one more year. As witching hour approaches, kids, and parents, too, discover the value of team spirit, friendship, sharing, making choices and moderation, especially when it comes to treats and sweets. Halloween month special: Come in costume, and get two-for-one tickets for any future Family Theatre show AND on Saturday, October 28 and Sunday, October 29 there’s free face-painting for kids and adults before the show! Now an audience favorite holiday tradition and back by audience demand for its eleventh October run, ABSOLUTELY HALLOWEEN is one in a series of original Rudie-DeCarlo fairy tale musical comedies that make up the 48-year old award-winning Family Theatre Musical Matinee Series for Kids 2 to 102, cutting across the imaginary generation gap by providing an experience the entire family can enjoy.
