On All Hallows Eve, as ghosts of the dead return to earth and witches cackle and summon evil spirits, Candlelight invites you to spend the dreaded season listening to some of the most iconic Halloween songs at the creepy Redford Theatre.
The program includes creepy tunes from popular horror films like Psycho, Ghostbusters and The Nightmare Before Christmas, as well as haunting melodies like “Danse Macabre” and Schubert’s “Der Erlkönig”. This dark and haunting gig will get even spookier under the nightmarish glow of candlelight.
The origins of the holiday go back thousands of years to Samhain, a Celtic festival that marked the end of the harvest and welcomed in the new year. Since then the line between the living and the dead during this time of year remains blurry, filling the air with mystery and mayhem.
This Halloween, swap the jack-o’-lanterns and trick or treating for a ghostly music show. From Halloween to Mussorgsky’s “Night on Bald Mountain”, these songs will add a freaky touch to the already spooky backstory. The Redford Theatre will bee unrecognizable as it is completely enveloped in candlelight
Transport yourself to some of the scariest movie scenes and relive significant moments in pop culture as you hear the hair-raising melodies of spooky season classics.
There are two back-to-back performances each evening. Each concert will last 65 minutes and doors open 45 minutes prior to showtime.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
