Port Chester Middle School teachers and parents are collaborating on a scary experience for the public this year for Halloween. Determined to provide fun for Sound Shore fans of haunted houses, they are stepping into the gap left when Playland could no longer host its traditional Halloween fright house.
Called Haunted Halls, the Halloween event will take place at Port Chester Middle School from Thursday October 24 through Saturday October 26 from 6-10 PM. The public is invited to attend.
There will be a haunted maze with many teacher-actors providing the scare, as well as a zombie photo shoot (with professional photographer Dawn Cortez) and outside zombie graveyard.
Tickets are $10 for the maze and $15 for the Maze/Photo-Shoot Combo. Tickets will be sold in advance at the school and at the door each night. Ticket information can also be obtained by emailingPCMSHauntedHalls@gmail.com.
The PCMS/PTA is the sponsor of Haunted Halls. Professional actors and make-up artists fromPennywise Productions (an educational program of the Port Chester Council for the Arts) will assist and advise the PTA. Technical director Zach Dore will supervise the special effects. PCMS teacher Julie Colangelo will direct the fright night event
A “call for actors” was emailed to all PCMS staff last week and an actors’ meeting is scheduled so that planning and rehearsals can begin. Haunted Halls is just four weeks away. Wah-ha-ha-ha!
