“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 – On-Demand so you can watch it right in your own living room, kitchen, den – wherever and whenever you like. It’s 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.
ABSOLUTELY HALLOWEEN is one in a series of original Rudie-DeCarlo fairy tale musical comedies that make up the award-winning Family Theatre Musical Matinee Series for Kids 2 to 102 now celebrating its 51st year as it cuts across the imaginary generation gap by providing an experience the entire family can enjoy.
