The Langham October events!

Art Exhibits, Live Theatre, FLIKS, Spooky Stuff!
Awesome October events coming to The Langham!

Fall brings wonderful new art exhibits, organic free-range local theatre, the return of FLIKS, and at the end of the month a spooky Staged Reading of Frankenstein and another creepy Langham haunt on Halloween night!

Note that this presentation of Frankenstein is a Stage Reading as opposed to a full-blown production. A stage reading is a form of theatre without sets or full costumes, in which the actors, who read from scripts, may be seated, stand in fixed positions, or incorporate minimal stage movement.

Its an opportunity for the community to witness local theatre in the process of creation!       “It’s Alive!!!”
This Special Kaslo Halloween Haunt from Scream Dimension will be in the Langham theatre from about 6pm to 9pm on Halloween night Wednesday October 31st. Toonie entrance fee.

…And See You at The Langham!
