On Halloween night, a couple opens their door to find a true monster: a teenager without a costume who demands candy anyway. While Alicia thinks they should just give Jordan a Butterfinger and call it a night, to Jonas, it's about the integrity of trick-or-treating, it's about effort. But if there's more to Jordan than meets the eye, it just might also be a Halloween miracle. Additional scripts from “Scared Silly” may be used as well.

 

Currently limited to casts of 3 students, multiple casts may rehearse at the same time. Safety precautions will be followed as outlined in our Fun & Safety Plan.
