Raven Theatre Boo HaHa!
Halloween, with its costumes, decorations and flair for the
dramatic, definitely has a theatrical twist. So it makes perfect
sense that Raven Theatre in Chicago has created a way to combine
the holiday with its community outreach efforts.
On Oct. 27 families are invited to Raven's second annual
Boo HaHa!, which features bounce houses, trick-or-treating, a live
band and theater games. Best of all, the entire event is free,
including the pizza, popcorn and lemonade.
Last year's Boo HaHa! drew about 600 visitors, and this
year Raven Theatre's managing director Teri McCaskill hopes to see
"Part of the reason that we do this is to provide our
neighbors the opportunity to come in and see the theater and
experience some of what we have to offer," McCaskill
In addition to the Halloween-themed activities, staff will
hold 15-minute sessions in the theater for kids so they can play
some theater games and have a chance to perform onstage.
This year's event also will include games such as a
pumpkin toss and spoon races with water, face painting, and a craft
table. Kids are encouraged to come in costume and no registration
