Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Banquet room.

Props / Special FX: fog machine?

Summary: Information on the website for this event said it would be a fun night of contests, prizes, music, and games with six bands. We drove over an hour to get there and when arrived we found out it was in a rundown banquet room above a bowling alley. We were fully decked out in our costumes which we spent a long time preparing and were excited for a fun party but when we got upstairs we saw a room full of tweens! And none of which had a costume on. Admission was $7 bucks all of which we had quickly refunded as we left. Absolutely nothing like the website said it would be and very disappointing.

Visibility/Location: It was easy to find, mapquest gives good directions.

Wait Entertainment: None.

Length of Event: Too Long! 30mins??

Actor Performance: There was only one actress and she did a good job with what she was given. Some points couldnt hear her very well.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Fine.

Appropriate Ages: 10+??

Props / Special FX: Nothing special. Was expecting a lot more with the space that was provided.

Costumes / Make-up: Not very good. Seemed to be taking place in the past but she had sketchers on.

Summary: This play was just a series of monologues. There was one actress on stage the entire time. It has a few surprises but there wasnt really a climax, no action, and the plot was not enough to hold it all together. The actress didnt utilize the space given and stayed at the front of the stage for almost the entire play. The borchure claims a "crazy journey" but was far from crazy. I expected her to throw things around, scream, roll on the ground, cut herself, SOMETHING! but she didnt, just monologues. Needless to say I was disappointed. Oh and the website says $12 to get in but they charged $15. bo-GUS!
