Blog: Theatre's Spookiest Shows

Halloween is coming up and we are excited! After all, this is the one time of the year that dressing up and putting on a whole face of 'stage' make up is the norm. With little to no theatre this year, this is probably the closest that many of us have come to 'getting into costume' for months so, theatre kids, we wanted to provide some spooky show inspo to help you get Halloween ready!

Thank you to all the brilliantly creative people from the internet from whom we have sourced these wonderful ideas!
