Hallows' Eve Pop-Up Theatre


You are here


Our transformative season started off by venturing just outside our venue with Songs of Summer outdoor concerts, and this October, we are now venturing even further out into the community. For two weekends only, to two locations in Richmond, we are bringing a life-size version of our Hallows’ Eve miniature paper theatre that was created last year. 

Get ready to be transported into the whimsical world of Hallows’ Eve at our pop-up theatre. The stage is all yours to play on and bring to life a castful of fun-loving, adventurous characters. Create magical moments with the whole family as you step into this enchanting set, beautifully illustrated by local artist Keely O'Brien. Don’t miss this free family-friendly artistic offering suitable for all ages.
