Thriller Movie Classics to Highlight ASU's Spooktacular VII
The Angelo State University Choir will present Halloween Spooktacular VII, featuring songs and skits from some of the all-time great scary movies, Tuesday, Oct. 23, at the City Auditorium.
The annual Spooktacular has become one of the choir's most popular events as members dress up in colorful costumes, sing a variety of spooky (and humorous) songs and then pass out treats to children. This year's program will begin at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 23 and is open free to the public. Lee Middle School’s Rebel Rage Choir will also perform and other activities will include a costume contest and audience sing-along.
Centered around the theme “Hollywood Halloween,” the evening will be highlighted by singing, dancing and comedy skits from Tim Burton’s “Nightmare Before Christmas,” Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Phantom of the Opera” and cult film classics “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes” and “Rocky Horror Picture Show.”
Other choral selections will include a parody of the Looney Tunes classic “What’s Opera, Doc?,” Jester Hairston’s spooky spiritual “That Ole House is Ha’nted,” “Double Trouble” from “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” and “Grim Grinning Ghosts” from Disney’s “Haunted Mansion.”
Suitable for all ages, the annual Halloween Spooktacular has grown in popularity from a relatively intimate 350-seat venue to standing-room-only status at the 1,500-seat City Auditorium.
