NoLateSeatingThose who crave the spotlight most often become entertainers. Their talent demands it. It is their calling to shine.

We applaud them, and in so doing bask in the glow of their accomplishment. They are center stage with the footlights on them, but we are illuminated by their performance.

Their light shines on us as they render and interpret and presnet their truths. Greater  performers shine brightest, and we shine brighter too.

It’s Not Halloween But We Invite You To A Haunted House

Magic follows many traditions and The Spook Show is one that dates back to the last century.

“The House of Ghostly Haunts,” at Canal Park Playhouse on Tuesdays from March 27th to April 17th, is Cardone the Magician’s macabre creation of the phantasmagorical and strange.

The show begins with trailers from classic horror films fromm the 1950s and ends with ten minutes of complete darkness.

Be prepared to be thrilled, entranced, and scared.
