Something funny this way comes when the 142 Throckmorton Theatre proudly presents Grin Reapers on Halloween night, Monday October 31 at 7:30 PM.
Grin Reapers feature some of the Bay Area’s top comedians reading classic horror tales on a dark and scary night.
The lineup features Will Durst, Debi Durst, Johnny Steele, Michael Bossier, Mari Magaloni, Marc Hershon, Bob Sarlatte, Geoff Bolt and Bill Bonham and some surprise guests, under the spooky musical direction of Dick Bright.
Frightening tales from Edgar Allan Poe, Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Mark Twain and many others will be shared. The audience can sing along to a rendition of Monster Mash, led by Sarlatte, famed as the lead singer for Butch Whacks & The Glass Packs.
The second half of the Grin Reapers show will feature a Halloween tradition: A sĂ©ance to bring back the ghost of escape artist Harry Houdini under the direction of master magician Robert Strong.
In addition to the on-stage entertainment, there will also be a combination Halloween costume and joke-telling contest complete with prizes. Doors open at 7 PM. Tickets are $15. Refreshments will be available in the lobby.
