Thrill seekers who enter Theatre Bristol’s third annual Haunted Maze will find themselves in the midst of some of the most iconic horror films of all time.
After months of preparations, Theatre Bristol — located at 512 State St., next to the Paramount Center for the Arts downtown — will throw open the doors to its Old Hollywood-themed haunted attraction on Friday.
The maze will be open for business from 7 p.m. to midnight, Fridays and Saturdays, through Halloween.
“We will have everything from Hollywood horror to literary legends, from the master of macabre Alfred Hitchcock to today’s version of the vampire and zombie,” said Theatre Bristol President Spence Flagg. “Whichever kind of ghoulish creature you crave, you will find it in downtown Bristol this month.
“Our community continues to grow the allure of our wonderful downtown. And this is an event that adds excitement to downtown Bristol.
“Theatre Bristol’s Haunted Maze cast is a group of trained actors that have been rehearsing since August. That’s a lot of haunting practice,” Flagg added. “The rotating cast consists of a group of 55 actors ranging in ages from 8 to 55. You are definitely going to get the scare you seek out of this group.”
Admission is $7, and proceeds will benefit Theatre Bristol, which is also hard at work on its upcoming production of “Peter Pan the Avenger,” set to take flight later this year.
“It is a fun and festive way to support a good cause and the community,” Flagg said. “Theatre Bristol continues to provide a creative outlet for all ages.
“All of the participants are volunteers, and we are very thankful to have their support as well as the support of the community.”
