There are a great many scary stories to tell. Some are very old, and they are told around the world. Some are very new, and may very well be true. We'll be turning out the lights, eating popcorn, and sharing tales of ghosts, monstrous creatures, bogey-men, death, and other dangers through shadow puppet theatre. What lurks in the shadows, hides in the darkness, and creeps underfoot? Come find out....if you dare!
