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

launching every 10-15 minutes. Season ticket

holders get their first tour included with their purchase

“Asylum” will come to “life” beginning October

19, ending Halloween night. Performances of this

seasonal scare fest will begin at 7:00 PM and end

at 10:00 PM Friday and Saturday nights October

19, 20, 26, 27. Monday & Tuesday performances
