The Cyclorama becomes the setting for a series of storytelling events on a cold winter’s night. Inspired by the old English tradition of mid-winter fireside stories, the BCA teams up with Nora Dooley of massmouth, inc. and BCA Emerging Theatre Company imaginary beasts to present an evening of stories for all ages. Bring your blankets and flashlights and enjoy hot seasonal beverages while listening to campfire classics.
The afternoon begins at 4pm with a family-friendly hour-long segment of mysteries, hauntings and eerie encounters. At 10pm things get darker and spookier for Boston’s late-night crowd. Throughout each event, imaginary beasts will entertain audiences with excerpts from their newest production, Winter Panto 2013 - Legend of Sleepy Hollow, running in the Plaza Black Box Theatre from January 11 – February 2, 2013.
