CLINTON — As a special Halloween event Kidz Konnection Shoreline Theater Academy’s Advanced Actors will present an interactive Lantern Tour through the historic arts district of Clinton that follows the story of Frankenstein, Oct. 18 and 19.
Join the actors as they travel from the historic 1801 Academy Building and grounds to other sites along historic Clinton’s Main Street Arts District and culminating in the ancient colonial Clinton burying grounds dating to the 1600s.
By lantern light and the light of the moon, follow Victor Frankenstein’s journey from his research lab to his educational institution to the grave sites of his experiments and finally the ship where he is forced to confront his monstrous creation in this hour-long interactive play.
All proceeds of the event will go to the Seize the Day Capital Campaign to renovate and restore the second story of the historic Academy Building. The 12-month long campaign has already raised $10,000 toward a goal of $25,000 to replace the outdated linoleum flooring for a professional grade dance floor, remove the drop ceiling to expose the original peaked ceiling above and restore its historic beauty while also creating an inviting space for intimate style theater events.
Three tours will be offered every half hour, 6:30 p.m., 7 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18 and Saturday, Oct. 19. Dress appropriate for the outdoors and wear comfortable walking shoes.
Tickets are $15/each and can be purchased at kidzkonnectionct.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
