Back by popular demand, “BOO! A Family Friendly Halloween Musical” returns to the Main Stage of Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts just in time for Halloween.
A special production of “The New Musicals Project,” this interactive musical is for kids of all ages and is in no way scary.
Our story begins when eleven-year-old Hallie Opal Ween sets out on a mission to stop the “World Holiday Commission” from cancelling the Halloween holiday–they say because of low candy and costume sales. During her travels, Hal meets a trio of recently unemployed and good-natured monsters whose very livelihood depends on the survival of Halloween. It isn’t long before they join Hal and the audience on their quest to save the holiday from extinction.
BOO! the musical was originally commissioned by the Central Park Conservancy and performed as “Halloween at Belvedere” outdoors at Belvedere Castle for four Halloweens in New York City’s Central Park. The script was developed by Northport native Joe Pospisil and the songs were written by Howard Beckerman of Patchogue. The Patchogue revival of BOO! includes time for the children to meet and greet the cast of comic actors after the performance.
“BOO! A Family Friendly Halloween Musical” is a cooperative venture between Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts and Worldwide Voices, developer of “The New Musicals Project;” both are 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organizations.
