ABSOLUTELY GREAT! An absolute family treat! The Tolucan Times. It's the Family Theatre musical for Kids 2 to 102 – the heartwarming Rudie-DeCarlo tale of Candy, a sweet young girl who learns some surprising lessons about life, love, laughter, and sugar, from a delightful array of characters who take her on a magical All Hallow's Eve adventure as audiences help Cattypuss, Stuffy Steve, Lester the Jester and Fifika the French Fortune Teller save Halloween for one more year. As witching hour approaches, kids, and parents, too, discover the value of team spirit, friendship, sharing, making choices and moderation, especially when it comes to treats and sweets.


Now an audience favorite in its 15th October run, ABSOLUTELY HALLOWEEN is one in a series of original Rudie-DeCarlo musical comedies that make up the award-winning Family Theatre Musical Matinee Series for Kids 2 to 102, now celebrating its 50th year! Helmed by Graham Silbert from Chris DeCarlo's original direction, with book, music & lyrics by DeCarlo, Evelyn Rudie & Matthew Wrather, ABSOLUTELY HALLOWEEN features internationally acclaimed Actors' Repertory Theatre members Celeste Akiki, Tiffany Haile, Cydne Moore, Joseph Perez, Graham Silbert, with special guest artist Jason Erickson. Birthday parties, hosted by a gaily-costumed member of the ABSOLUTELY HALLOWEEN Company, are available in conjunction with every performance. What's the one holiday show you absolutely cannot miss?
