Holly, MI (Oct. 2014) - The cast and crew of the Michigan Renaissance Festival present an all new Halloween event in Holly, MI.
Halloween in Hollygrove is made up of two ALL NEW events to tantalize your taste for Holiday fantasy. One of these premiering events includes the dinner theatre Halloween musical, Phantom’s Feast. The event is a six course gourmet meal and an award worthy performance of your favorite cult classics.
All year the Phantom waits for his most anticipated and favorite holiday of Halloween to arrive! The Phantom considers the celebration of Halloween the finest reason to invite the most fascinating creatures to his castle.
The vision for the Phantom’s Feast comes from the director, John Wray, and choreographer, Peter Suarez. The two partnered to create a Broadway take on a Halloween Musical. Wray, a professional writer and performer, came to the Michigan Renaissance Festival as a Tortuga Twin, and is serving well as the producer of the show. He wanted to focus the show on the fun and comical side of Halloween, rather than the more common ghoulish fright.
Together the duo [Wray and Suarez] have exceeded the borders of ordinary genres to create a wild Rock ‘N’ Roll Halloween party. The feast borrows the “Don’t dream it, be it” philosophy of the Rocky Horror Picture show and applies it to everyone’s favorite dress-up holiday. Both commented that their favorite part of the show is the merit of the performance. The heart and soul of the cast radiates charisma and showmanship in every fingernail and follicle.
The Phantom’s Feast premieres Saturday October 18th. The dates continue Sunday the 19th of October as well as the following weekend evenings October 25th and 26th.
