ECCT Presents: "Arthur's Halloween"
The Oxford, 1814 Oxford Avenue, Eau Claire 54703
The Eau Claire Children’s Theatre will present ARTHUR’S HALLOWEEN October 24-26 and October 31-November 1, at The Oxford, 1814 Oxford Avenue, Eau Claire.
Arthur thinks everything about Halloween is scary – D.W.’s costume, even his morning snack! – but he’s most afraid of the big spooky house on the corner where no one wants to go trick-or-treating. Arthur’s fears are eventually soothed once he realizes things aren’t always the way you imagine.
Performances are scheduled for Friday, October 24 and 31, at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, October 25 and November 1, at 11:00 a.m. & 1:30 p.m.; and Sunday, October 26 at 1:30pm. Reserved seating tickets are $8 for youth/students and $12 for seniors/adults, and may be purchased online at www.ecct.org, by calling 715-839-8877, or at the door.
ARTHUR’S HALLOWEEN is sponsored by Oakwood Mall and Smiles in Motion Pediatric Dentistry, as well as our 2014-2015 season sponsor, Kristo Orthodontics.
For tickets or more information, visit www.ecct.org or call 715-839-8877.
