Autumn is upon us and with the changing of the leaves comes all the fall activities. Apple picking, ghost tours, taking the kids to the pumpkin patch…there’s just so much fun to be had this time of year. City Theatre of Independence is proud to be participating in not one, but TWO Halloween community events: Enchanted Forest and a Haunted House attraction in partnership with the Cable Dahmer Arena.
Enchanted Forest is a non-scary, family friendly Halloween event for children of all ages held at the George Owens Nature Park. Enchanted Forest is sponsored by The Powerhouse Theatre Foundation and Independence Parks and Recreation. This event will be held October 21-22 and October 28-29. Gates open at 7:00pm and everyone arriving by 9:00pm will be admitted. Tickets are $3 per person at the gate. Thursday, October 20th, is Special Friends Night. This is a night dedicated to children with special needs. This year, Enchanted Forest is celebrating its 30th anniversary. For more information on Enchanted Forest please call (816) 325-7115 or (816) 325-7370.
City Theatre of Independence is proud to announce a new community partnership with the Cable Dahmer Arena in presenting a Haunted House attraction. This free community event will be held at the Cable Dahmer Arena (19100 E Valley View Pkwy, Independence, MO. 64055) on October 20th from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. The theme is “Victorian Gothic” and will feature familiar characters from classic gothic horror novels with Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Red Death” as the underlying story. We still have several roles in this haunted attraction available. If you are interested in performing as one of our characters please submit this form: https://www.emailmeform.com/builder/form/1aDae7pirU82Qscf02dKACX

We hope you’ll join us at one (or both) of our community Halloween events this year.
Stay spooky, my friends!
