Barter Theatre presents “Something Wicked This Way Comes”

“Shades of Mark Twain with a touch of Stephen King, as if Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer had found themselves lost in a sinister fairground full of supernatural characters.”

A play by Ray Bradbury

Step inside. The show is about to begin. The carnival rolls in to town sometime after midnight, ushering in Halloween a week early. For Jim and Will, two almost 14-year-old boys, the lure of the carnival is irresistible. They soon discover that a sinister secret lies behind the smoke and mirrors; the carnival holds a dark desire to destroy the whole town. A spine-tingling battle between good and evil, in which only Jim, Will and Will’s mild-mannered father can save the day. This deliciously scary adventure is about friendship, innocence and perfectly captures the wondrous belief we all possess when we are 14-years-old. A tale for the whole family to enjoy together.
