Celebrate Halloween for Grown-Ups - with Lost Nation Theater’s gleefully ghoulish Poe Spooktacular 
It’s the party of the year!



Mystical Magic is the theme as Montpelier City Hall Arts Center is transformed into hauntingly hip atmospheric chamber to become the perfect Halloween party spot. What a party will ensue! It’s Halloween for Grown-ups, that the whole family can enjoy.

From the fevered imagination of Tim “UnHolyTavcar”, LNT’s annual Halloween Poe Spooktacular is a hauntingly good time! With inspiration from that Master of the Macabre and its own wizardry, LNT’s Spooktacular offers a feast of sensations guaranteed to tingle the spine, tap the toes, and tickle the funny bone.


LNT’s Wizards of the Weird create a night to remember! Fan favorite performers create a frighteningly fun fundraiser for the company and perfect party for the people! With haunted hosting by Mark S Roberts, there’s the (petrifying) Poe Performance featuring “The Raven” and “Conquorer Worm” with Kim Allen Bent and a Dance Macabre with Taryn Noelle and Fiends. Then put your own dancing shoes on! Bop to the beat of 21-Piece Big Band, LC Jazz; enjoy devilish delectables; and a ridiculously fun costume contest!

It’s all on Saturday October 27, at Montpelier City Hall Arts Center.
