'HALLOWEEN HAUNTED HOUSE'
Lee, 5-8 p.m.
The Spectrum Playhouse will continue its annual tradition of a “Halloween Haunted House” tour. The Spectrum Playhouse (the converted former St. George’s church) and its adjoining community center will be carefully transformed into a macabre mansion. Guests who dare to be scared will follow a path through the monster maze and the haunted cemetery then tiptoe down a series of dark winding corridors opening to many chilling scenes with actors dressed to frighten as mad scientists, zombies, ghosts and ghouls of all sorts. Tickets are $5 per person and may be purchased at the door. The event is most appropriate for ages 10 and up, but if younger children want to take the tour, the haunted house actors will be signaled to pull back on the scare factor. Call 413 394-5023 for more information.
