CHILDREN love to dress up in their best Halloween outfits and go trick and treating but parents worry about them being out and about on dark October nights.
So, the Bocking Arts Theatre has come up with a great idea to keep them safe.
PPJ productions, a professional company, are presenting a fun filled panto style show for families to enjoy the Halloween Trick and Treat children’s show in safety. The children might also win a prize for dressing up.
“It’s a cross between Scooby Doo and Ghostbusters” said director of the show Patrick Jacobs, a.k.a Potty Patrick.
“There will be zombies, ghosties and mad monks! Plus magic, songs, dances and lots of comedy from Pip and Pop our two heroes. This is the first time a Halloween themed show has been presented in a theatre.”
The show centres on showmen Pip and Pop who arrive at a spooky hotel to discover that if they manage to stay the night they win the treasure. The caretaker, Mr E, is sure they will be scared off. They meet a few strange and wonderful characters along the way.
The show is ideal for children aged four and up. There will be shows at 2pm and 5pm on October 30-31. Tickets, £7 or £8 on the door, are available from Banana Travel, wegottickets.com/thebocking or 01279 815464.
