Put the kids to bed and then jump online to watch Horizon Theatre’s The Ghosts of Little Five Points: A Spirited Virtual Halloween Experience – a night of ghostly cocktails and hilarious and spine-tingling tales from beyond the grave!
The interactive virtual Halloween show and party starts October 22 and runs through November 1, Wed through Sunday at 8pm. This one-of-a-kind and very Atlanta Halloween comedy features ghosts unique to Little Five Points, both real and imagined.
“Medium” Gina will be your party host, mixing her Ghostlight cocktail and introducing you to her colorful spirit guests. You’ll meet over a dozen ghosts of Little Five Points from familiar haunts like the Euclid Avenue Yacht Club, The Vortex, The Star Bar, and Variety Playhouse to the secret witch’s coven and lonely train tracks. Live theatre and Halloween magic combine in this comic virtual show!
Come in full costume or a festive hat or mask and show it off, or keep it simple and come as you are. Best costumes will be highlighted! Guests will receive a recipe for a haunted Ghostlight Cocktail and a list of simple props for interacting with the host and ghosts. These are optional, but encouraged!
Written by some of the greatest comic and dramatic talents of Atlanta, Mark Kendall (Alliance’s The Magic Negro, Dad’s Garage), Gina Rickicki (Gina’s Garbage Hour, Dad’s Garage), Neeley Gossett (writer, Found Stages) and conceived by Co-Artistic Director Lisa Adler and Nichole Palmietto, Horizon’s National New Play Network Producer in Residence who also directs, this is a comic Halloween experience hand- crafted for Atlanta 2020.

They are mostly silly fun, with some spooky adding an extra kick!”
