Lake Compounce Haunted Graveyard

The Haunted Graveyard got its start in 1991, when Ernie and Carol Romegialli’s daughter, Johanna, was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes.

According to Ernie, "We started decorating our yard in Middletown, Connecticut for Halloween, thinking it would keep Johanna's mind off candy. Every year, the displays of decoration just kept getting bigger and bigger. It outgrew our yard and has since evolved into Southern New England’s largest Halloween attraction. Today, Johanna, at age 28, is an active member of the Graveyard team."

Rides include Boulder Dash, Zoomerang, Ghost Hunt, Wild Cat, Twister, American Flyers, Bumper Cars, Wipe Out, Thunder N’ Lightning, Rev-O-Lution, Wave Swinger, Carousel, Enterprise, Down Time, Giant Wheel, Pirate Ship, Sky Coaster and Zoomers Gas N’ Go.

Providence Improv Guild's Redrum: Oath

The Providence Improvised Guild will present an improvised and interactive psychological thriller set in the bowels of a creepy cult, the Pilgrims of the Oath.

“Redrum: Oath” – the second in P.I.G.’s annual “Redrum” Halloween series – runs every Thursday and Friday, October 16 through Halloween night, at the Southside Cultural Center (393 Broad St, Providence, RI). 

The Story: It’s a busy but ominous time for the Pilgrims of the Oath. In its zeal to achieve the higher spiritual plane of “normalization,” tensions are on the rise, factions are forming, and its bizarre practices are growing more…extreme. Audiences will determine the fate of the cult and its members, ensuring a very different creepy and suspenseful show each night.

Audience Note: The show invites audiences to move around from room to room in the basement of the Southside Cultural Center, following characters and situations as they please. They will get to be flies on the wall in a three-dimensional cult setting. Due to the nature of improvised theater, parental discretion is advised.

Tickets are $15 and are available at www.ImprovPIG.com and redrumoath.bpt.me. Each performance lasts approximately an hour.
