What lurks in the forest near Hawkins Indiana? Young outcasts took a dare to spend all night in a tent while older kids party in the Old Hampstead Cabin. Will they live to tell a totally wicked tale?
The forest outside of Hawkins Indiana hides an old abandoned hunting cabin. Yellow crime scene tape is draped across the door hanging there to keep out trespassers or to protect them. A few teenagers have heard stories, but no one really knows what happened there so many years ago… Was a there a murder? A fight? Some say the cabin is haunted – some say the woods are haunted. A dare was made. A party planned. This weekend, some kids are going to head out to the old Hampstead cabin for a good time and a better scare. Deep in the forest where things crawl and hunt in the night, things may not go according to plan.

Hollywood CA ’94-Foreign investors buy a movie studio with a rocky past and are trying to save a horror film in progress by turning it into a bankable B--Movie classic! Production continues on a historic movie lot cursed by decades of flops, scandals and unexplained accidents. Industry buzz builds as an expensive looking House is revealed as the new movie set, but strangely seems to appear overnight. A big budget movie seems risky, but failure is an alien concept to this Production Company; they believe that Notorious Location + Eclectic Cast+ Young Director= Money Making Magic! Most of the original talent was retained, but some roles must be recast. For one night only, hopefuls with head shots are invited to an open audition and ambitious skilled creatives are welcome to interview for crew vacancies (experience working with monstrous personalities is a plus).

New Orleans. 3 months after Hurricane Katrina. People go missing all the time in The Big Easy, but with all the chaos and destruction from the storm, who will miss a few more? The problem is, none of the Powers seem to know who is responsible, and if the count goes too high, mortals will start asking questions. A meeting has been called to figure out who's really behind the missing persons. Something in the supernatural world has changed, and things are not as they should be. Those in the know have been invited to The Babylon Club on Bourbon Street. It's time to discuss business and get to the bottom of this debacle before the muggles start asking questions. So, here you are. There's business to attend to. You'll be seeing some old faces, both enemies and friends, but tonight's not about old scores and past lives. Or is it?

The entire Goblin royal bloodline has died. The Goblin Sithen is no more. We now have a rare meeting of the royalty of the remaining Fey Courts to investigate what has happened.
A portal is opened, connecting an extra-dimensional council room with the mountainous terrain where the entrance to the Goblin Sithen used to be. Each of the remaining Fey Courts has sent representatives to this Council: The Shining Ones of the Seelie; The dark and seductive UnSeelie; The diminutive and secretive Demi-Fey; And even the sinister Sluagh. Their goal is to discover what happened to the Goblin royalty and the Sithen itself. And more importantly (to some) decide what needs to be done to prevent anything like this from happening again. Courtly manners are expected at all times, but there is tension in the air and the Fey are known for their tempers... They are nothing, if not proud. Bring your best negotiating skills, and maybe some veiled threats as well. If one of the Fey Courts can be destroyed, are any of the others truly safe? Costumes encouraged but not required.
In a small Midwestern high school, huddled survivors seek shelter from horrifying aliens. The invasion has begun, and surviving the night may be no comfort at all. This is the end of the world.
It began two days ago with strange astronomical ‘sightings’, continued with sudden and destructive weather phenomena. Then the sightings on Earth began, amazing and horrifying images posted to social media. Reports of deaths. And then, just before the global communication grid collapsed, that terrible image—that poor anchorwoman, and that terrible, terrible…thing. In a small town in Wisconsin, survivors straggle into the high school in twos and threes, seeking any kind of shelter from the terror outside. Mothers and sons, killed or taken by the aliens. Or worse. The living huddle around an old radio, desperate for something. Anything. But they despair. For it is the end of the world. Costumes encourages but not required, character selection available after ticket purchase.
