Fright Night returns Oct. 29 to the Rio Grande Theatre


Come spend a spectacularly spooky day with us Oct. 29 at the Rio Grande Theatre, 211 N. Main St., as we monster mash our way through three great interactive films!

Starting off the spooky event will be Tim Burton’s classic “Nightmare Before Christmas: Sing-a-long!” Bring the whole family out and sing all your favorite spooky tunes from the Halloween classic.

Next up will be “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog,” presented by Blank Conversations Theatre Company. Join the Shadow Cast as they pantomime along to the antics of Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, and Felicia Day as they discover what it means to be a true villain in a silly musical montage.

Lastly, as the midnight hour strikes join Blank Conversations and the Las Cruces Shadow Cast as they present the cult classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Dance, Scream, and shout your way as they do the “Time Warp” through the night! Prop bags will be included in the ticket price!
