Phantoms of the Theatre

The dead come alive!


When turning on the news is as terrifying as it's been, the haunted-house fans among us welcome the Halloween season. See, in these kinds of attractions, the scariness is all in good fun. You'll be startled, you'll scream, and you'll have a blast doing so when you visit a place like the Theatre of the Dead (1107 North Second Street, St. Charles; 636-493-1776). To walk (or run!) through this spooktastic structure, pay $18 to $25, and be ready to experience the paranormal, see the dead and be scared half out of your mind! This eerie theater is so haunted that even the specters will allow you to escape the space if you get too scared! So will you be able to make it through? Or will you chicken out? You have several chances to find out because the Theatre of the Dead is open each evening except Monday through Sunday, November 2. Visit to learn more about the haunting — and to print out a coupon. Bwah-ha-ha-ha!
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 1. Continues through Nov. 2, 2008
