Hollywood Gothique would like to congratulate Regina Ainsworth, who won a family-pack of four tickets to attend Eek at the Greek at the Greek Theatre on Saturday, October 25. We would also like to thank all the other contestants; we’re sorry we could not give free tickets to all of you!
Eek! at the Greek! is returning for its fourth Halloween season. Presented by the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, the event features the 60-piece Symphony in the Glen Orchestra, conducted by Arthur B. Rubinstein, performing Igor Stravinsky’s “Infernal Dance” from The Firebird; Camille Saint-Saens “Funeral March of the Marionette” (commonly known as the theme to the old Alfred Hitchcock Show); and “The Devil Dance” by John Williams. Also, actor Bruce Boxleitner will narrate Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart” with musical accompaniment, and there will be a world premiere performance of new live music by Carl Stalling, set to Disney’s classic 1929 Silly Symphonies cartoon, “Skeleton Dance.”
A Trick-or-Treat Village will be open from 4:30pm to 6:30pm in the front plaza of the Greek Theatre, where children can enjoy face-painting, a costume contest, safe trick-or-treating, and other arts and crafts. Musical performances begin at 7Pm. The finale of the costume contest will take place on stage during intermission.
Tickets are $100 for a Pit Table. Prices for individual seats are: Adults $25 or $55 depending on seating; children $8 or $15, depending on seating. The event’s webpage is here.
