The annual “haunting” of Theatre 29 opens for a
Twentynine Palms Pioneer Days weekend unveiling.
For the ninth year in a row, Producer Eric Ross,
who honed his skills at Knott’s Scary Farm, and
Directors Frances Wright and Charles Harvey have
created another Halloween Masterpiece, “Asylum”.
The Theatre 29 Halloween Haunt has become
legendary in the entire Morongo Basin for its
ever-shifting moods and skillful vignettes. This
years spectacular effort is performed by a large
and talented cast of over 40 performers.
In this years scenario, adventurous souls will be
self guided, as they explore the depths of an
asylum for the criminally insane that was shut
down in the early 1900’s for doing unauthorized
experiments. Unknown to authorities, some of the
inmates and the more dedicated staff never left!
Later, the asylum was used for illegal toxic
waste dumping which has affected some of the more illustrious guests.
Intrepid visitors will start their experience by
going through a sewer, then into a wooded area &
graveyard, before "breaking" into the asylum
itself, then through reception areas, patient & treatment rooms.
Director Wright said, “I am grateful to have been
involved with this year’s incarnation and I am
looking forward to scaring those brave enough to
face the abandoned Asylum and the trapped souls
still lurking within. She also said , I am
thankful to have the support staff and a very cohesive cast this year as well.”
If you have the nerve to face the abandoned
asylum and all the patients still lurking,
tickets will be available through pre-sale at
select locations for $5.00 each or at the door
for $7.00 each for individuals, and for groups of
4 or more $5.00 each at the door with tours
