September 16th & 17th Doors: 7pm Showtime: 8pm
For All We “Show” is nostalgic burlesque journey through the soaring romance, playful innocence, bell bottoms and hope of the 1970’s, all set to the chart topping, record breaking, unforgettable hits of the Carpenters. You know you “Need to Be in Love”, and we want to be “Close to You”, so be the “Superstar” that you are, and even when “We’ve Only Begun” to show you what “Mr. Postman” has in his bag for you, you’ll be feeling on “Top of the World” by the end of this evening of love and burlesque.More Info

Friday September 30th & Saturday October 1st 10:30pm
As children go happily costumed from house to house amidst lawns festooned with carved pumpkins, dodging Styrofoam headstones and plastic skeletons, it waits. As they pour out their bags of candy onto the soft, warm rug of their cozy living rooms and tear into chocolate, taffy & licorice with delight while an old scary movie drones serenely on the TV behind them, it waits. As the porches slowly go dark, bathing the quiet suburban street in an inky cloak of night, it prepares to strike.
Blood Squad presents a fully improvised show live onstage in the style of Halloween horror.
