The leaves are changing colors, and there’s a chill in the air, which can only mean one thing – Halloween is almost upon us! And here at The Academy Center of the Arts we’ve scared up Halloween fun for all ages this month. Check it out:


We Are Monsters: A New Children’s Musical

Friday, October 13, 7:00 PM & Saturday, October 14, 10:00 AM

We Are Monsters is a hilarious new musical that follows human kids into a monster cabaret filled with quirky monster characters. The adventurous humans uncover vegetarian vampires and rock n’ roll werewolves, gradually realizing there may be more to these monsters than meets the eye! Most importantly these monsters and kids discover the importance of friendship and celebrating in the attributes that make each of us different and unique.

We invite you to dress up for the show and enjoy a bit of trick or treating in the lobby before the show begins!
