Posted October 10, 2008

The Idaho State University Department of Theatre and Dance will present the “Haunted Asylum: A Hauntingly Haunted House” at the L.E. and Thelma E. Stephens Performing Arts Center on Oct. 17 and 18.

The “Haunted Asylum” will be open from 10 p.m. to midnight on Friday, Oct. 17, and from 8 p.m. to midnight on Saturday, Oct. 18, and will be held in the James E. and Beverly Rogers Black Box Theatre.

Directed by Angeline Underwood, the premiere of the “Haunted Asylum” will allow participants to “experience the insanity within you” as they walk through the commons area, meet the inmates, tour the Surgery Room and identify the dearly departed in the Morgue.

“We’re trying to make it as scary as the economic crisis,” said guest artist Paul Zmolek.

Suggested donations for visiting the Haunted Asylum are $6 for adults and $3 for children 10 and under. This event may not be suitable for all ages. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

All proceeds support Department of Theatre and Dance Scholarship funds.
