Halloween Bucket List: Ghastly Dreadfuls - The Last Ghast - at the Center for Puppetry Arts

When it comes to puppet shows there is no one who can do it better than the Center For Puppetry Arts. The Ghastly Dreadfuls - The Last Ghast -  is one of the best adult puppets shows of all time and is one of Atlanta's best kept secrets. The "Dreadfuls" have become a cult favorite in Atlanta and is one of those shows that you must see at least once in your lifetime.

The show is of a mixture between Beettlejuice, the Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Alfred Hitchcock presents. The Ghastly Dreadfuls are fun, dark, and a little naughty. The stories contain spooky songs and devilish dances and some elements of horror, comedy, suspense, and the supernatural.

Created by Jon Ludwig and Jason von Hinezmeyer in 2006 - and winner of the 2012 UNIMA Citation of Excellence Award - The Ghastly Dreadfuls includes a variety of 11 characters, 14 stories and 18 songs over the course of its six year run. 

Before the show, patrons may experience the Center’s museum, including its exclusive Jim Henson exhibits that showcase puppets from LabryinthThe Dark Crystal, and many other Henson productions. Patrons may also enjoy a beer or a glass of wine from the “Lost Soul’s Tavern,” before the show and during intermission.

The Dreadfuls dare audience members to get in on the ghoulish action and wear their creepiest couture to the show. As always, at the closing performance on October 27th, a special Halloween costume contest (with prizes) will be held during intermission, so guests should dress to impress!

The Ghastly Dreadfuls by Jon Ludwig and Jason von Hinezmeyer runs October 11 – October 27, 2012 in the Center for Puppetry Arts’ Downstairs Theater. Performances are held Wednesday – Saturday nights at 8pm.
