EVENT DATES: OCTOBER 2 - NOVEMBER 1, 2015 from 7:00 PM to 12-Midnight 

ATTRACTIONS INCLUDE... 

Twisted Tree Mortuary 
Plunge into your deepest nightmares while wandering the catacombs and tombs of the Twisted Tree Mortuary. This outdoor experience will have your skin crawling, with both mind boggling fear as well as maybe some insects. Ghouls and creatures of the night lurk in the shadows waiting for their next victim to torment and haunt. 


Carnevil 
Step right up to the most deranged carnival imaginable! Our freaks and clowns are inside waiting to make you scream! Once equipped with your 3D spectacles, we will set you loose into the madness. Make sure to watch out for Bubbles, we told him not to use the chainsaw anymore but these clowns just don’t listen. 


The Boiler Room 
Do you dare enter the zombie infested boiler room? There are zombies lurking around every corner, thirsting for the taste of your warm flesh and blood. The infection is spreading quickly and the horde is looking for its newest member….might that be you? We heard that the resident ghost, Dougie, has been waiting in the boilers for his next hauntee. 


City Meats 
Being the most extreme haunt that 
Tucson has ever experienced, City Meats is not for the faint of heart. Our butchers are looking for some fresh meat and that means that you could be the next course. Once you enter the City Meats doors, there is NO going back. They can grab you, smell you, and chase you as they wish- inside of City Meats no one is safe. 


Apocalypse 
The Apocalypse is the Slaughterhouse’s NEWEST INTERACTIVE haunt! We can guarantee you have not experienced anything like what this attraction has to offer. The zombies are awaiting you upstairs, but now they are coming with full force because you will be ARMED and able to fight back. Do you dare face the Apocalypse?

Words on the Avenue returns for a new season of poetry on Sunday, Aug. 30 at Café Passe, 415 N. 4th Ave., 6:30 p.m. The open mic is open to all community writes to share just about everything they've put in their heads or on a piece of paper. Tucson Youth Poetry Slam's Jose Martinez is the featured poet for the evening. His poem "The Ten Commandments of Being Mexican" has become well known in the community and is a great example of using poetry as a primary weapon to battle injustices such as being stereotyped by the way he looks/thinks/feels. Roch Mirabeau will be there on the ones and twos, and Teré Fowler-Chapman will host. Suggested donation is $5. Open to everyone. The event's Facebook has more information.

Tucson, Arizona--Pima Community College Theatre Arts launches its 2015-2016 season with the humorous and heartfelt family production, HENRY AND RAMONA, by Cynthia McGean. The play is based on the best-loved children's book series by the Newberry Award-winning author Beverly Cleary, and directed by Mickey Nugent.

 

Ten-year-old Henry wants to do something important; he wants to deliver newspapers. But first Henry has to prove to his parents and the older kids that he can handle the responsibility. This isn't easy with the neighborhood pest, Ramona Quimby, around. Even Henry's dog, Ribsy, disrupts his attempts. Then Henry's friendship with his loyal friend Beezus, Ramona's sister, is tested when the boys form a clubhouse excluding girls. But, along the way, with the "help" of Ramona, Henry learns some valuable lessons about friendship and maturity. 

 

"It's all about doing something important with determination and perseverance," states Director Nugent. "Through a series of follies, Henry learns how to deal with all kinds of people and setbacks. He becomes responsible and respectful. The play is engaging and fun. It moves quickly through a year of seasons with colorful scenes that will delight the kids in the audience even as they learn valuable life lessons—something both parents and teachers will appreciate."

 

Scout Theatre Night Adventure is Saturday, Sept. 26 at 7 p.m. The event includes discounted tickets to HENRY AND RAMONA. After the play, scouts can take a peak of the backstage area and learn about the sets, costumes, lighting and acting processes with an onstage Q&A session with the cast and director.

 

A photo call for the media is scheduled for Tuesday, September 8 at 6 p.m. in the Center for the Arts Proscenium Theatre. Director Mickey Nugent is available for interviews: call 520-661-8052 (cell phone) or e-mail micnuge@gmail.com.

 

The Pima Community College Center for the Arts is located on West Campus at 2202 West Anklam Road, Tucson (just west of downtown). For ticket information contact the box office at 206-6986 or centerforthearts@pima.edu.
