Westfield Hosts Haunted House and Wax Museum

The Westfield Theatre Boosters will host its third annual Haunted House and Living Wax Museum on Thursday, Oct. 29, from 6-8 p.m. at Westfield High School. Ticket prices are $3 for the haunted house and wax museum and $2 for just the wax museum. This event is suitable for kids of all ages and fun for the whole family. Visitors who wear Halloween costumes will receive a special treat.

Three attractions will be part of the tour: a haunted house, a wax museum and new this year, a pirate's cove. Visitors will first enter a spooky haunted house where ghost hosts will tell a story about its creepy, crawly residents. After the haunted house, the audience will be led into a living wax museum, with more than 40 storybook and movie characters — portrayed by Westfield acting students. Everyone from the Hobbits and Snow White to Dracula and the Zombie will be living at the wax museum. And there's something new this year — a fun pirate's cove for adventurous visitors. Enter the world of a swashbuckling pirate, with caves, ships and lost treasure aplenty. The pirate cove is included regardless of the admission level.

This event is a primary fund-raiser for the Westfield theater acting and technical students. The students are canvassing the Westfield community gathering pledges as they participate either on stage or behind the scenes. All proceeds will be used to fund student theater trips to Chicago and other cities to learn more about theater arts. Tickets for the Haunted House and Wax Museum are available at the door. Pizza and refreshments will also be available for sale. Contact Scott Pafumi, Westfield Theatre Arts Director, at 703-488-6430.
