PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Port Chester Middle School teachers and parents are hoping to fill the gap left by the closing of Playland Amusement Park's Halloween fright house.
The two groups are collaborating on "Haunted Halls," the Halloween event set from 6 to 10 p.m. from Oct. 24- 26 at Port Chester Middle School.
The public is invited to attend the haunted house featuring a maze and a zombie photo shoot, according to a press release from the school district. Tickets for Haunted Halls are $10 for the maze and $15 for the Maze/Photo-Shoot Combo. Tickets will be sold in advance at the school and at the door each night.
The PCMS/PTA is the sponsor of Haunted Halls while professional actors and make-up artists from Pennywise Productions (an educational program of the Port Chester Council for the Arts) will assist and advise the PTA, according to the release. Technical director Zach Dore will supervise the special effects and PCMS teacher Julie Colangelo will direct the experience.
