Although Summer’s over, that doesn’t mean the fun doesn’t stop!
October is filled with exciting events all over Staten Island.
Just because summer ends and the school year starts back up again doesn’t mean that there aren’t anymore ways to have fun around the island- especially with a spook! Staten Island’s theatre community has many options for it’s audience during the month of October, and some extra scary shows to spice up your Halloween!
First up is Sea View Playwright’s Theatre production of the infamous musical, Rent. If you aren’t already familiar with the show, Rent tells the story of young artists living in lower Manhattan trying to survive and make a living- and of course, pay the rent. The show dives deep into several issues, including the uproar of HIV/AIDS during the time period. The show is playing from October 11th-13th and October 18th-20th at 460 Brielle Avenue.

Next up we have Mystical Journeys and Beyond. This event consists of three different plays, “Just Cake” written by Kimbra Eberly & Lawrence F. Schwabacher, “America’s Most Haunted Spooky Ghost Hunting Adventures in the Paranormal” written by Christopher Mancuso, and “Lemon Drop” written and directed by Lawrence F. Schwabacher. Alongside, there will also be a musical performance following the shows by “The Stevie Chicks.” It is sure to be a spooky and fun night! The shows are running from October 18th and 19th at 8pm, and October 20th at 3pm, at Hub 17 NYC (73 Wave Street). For tickets, please click.
Alongside that weekend will be Stage Door Players Repertory Theatre presenting A Dolls House Pt. 2. This is the first production in New York City since the show closed its Broadway run in 2017.
