sCARe Stories Hallowe'en weekend


Hallowe’en is expanding in Montréal…

Hallowe’en is slowly becoming a major festive and cultural event in Montreal. In what it hopes to be the start of a new annual tradition, Optative Theatrical Laboratories is bringing the spirit of Hallowe’en back by transforming the Plateau, with all its grungy alleyways, streets, bars and parking lots, into a terrifying haunted house where no one is safe from the creatures that lurk in the shadows….

Montrealer Donovan King, infamous for putting the fear-factor back into motherland England’s London Dungeon is facilitating sCARe STORIES as a celebration of Montreal’s ghostly past and Hallowe’en. In the tradition of Montreal’s longest-running theatre experiment, Car Stories, only three spectators at a time, never knowing what’s lurking just around the corner, will be thrown into a frightening matrix of phantom killers, the undead, classic scenes of terror set in real cars - and things that go bump in the night!

The performance runs Sunday, October 30th and Monday, October 31st between 6:30pm and 10pm, with a new group leaving every 30 minutes.

Spectators should call (514) 583-FEST (3378) or e-mail to reserve a spot, or go to Copacabana (3910 St-Laurent) during show times and look for someone undead.

Actors wanted for sCARe Stories

Optative Theatrical Laboratories is looking for players, cars and stories of horror for sCARe Stories, a Halloween show based on Montreal's longest-running theatre experiment Car Stories.

Set in grungy alleys, streets, bars and parked cars, this show will transform Montreal's urban wonderland into a haunted house for three spectators at a time.

If you can create a bold character and play within loose dramatic guidelines, or if you have a 10-12 minute story (scripted or improv-based) that can be played in a car, please get in touch with us.

Call (514) 583-FEST (3378) or e-mail
