Dream Theatre Company presents the 3rd of the critically acclaimed horror plays -AUDIENCE ANNIHILATED PART 3: THE TROUBLE WITH ANGELS by Jeremy Menekseoglu at Dream Laboratory located in Chicago’s Lincoln Square neighborhood at 5026 N. Lincoln Ave.

Part haunted house, part horror show, Dream Theatre Company once again shatters the boundary and blurs all lines between actor and audience with this third incantation in the AUDIENCE ANNIHILATED series. Audience members will chose one of two roles to play. To play the lead role, chose Angel (up to 4 people) and be completely immersed in the terrifying story interacting with the menacing figures around you. Or if you are too scared, you can choose to be a part of the gallery audience of 16, the Choir role is for you where you watch the horror unfold before your eyes. Each performance must have at least one Angel.

YOU stand in a dark woods, prickly branches reaching out towards your face. You’re on a trail that leads to the cabin where your mother has recently taken you to live. She has told you never to go outside, but she has been drinking more and more lately, and is so easy to disobey. The air is thick with the sounds of mosquitoes and feasting flies. The remains of a dead animal lies at your feet. YOU hear someone’s rattled breathing beside you.

Menekseoglu’s immersive experience has been deemed a “poetic phantasmagoric” and “thrillingly too close for comfort.” The Chicago Reader recognized Audience Annihilated in the 2014 Best of Chicago awarding it Best 15-Minute Horror Show and calling it “the most chilling horrific 15 minutes I’ve endured in a long time…you walk away from the experience feeling thrillingly alive.”

Doors open no more than 5 minutes prior to the performance and there is no late admission.

Feathers and Teeth at the @GoodmanTheatre

There’s a monster living in Chris’ home, but that’s not even her worst nightmare.

What was your greatest fear as a child? Monsters under your bed? Creatures in your closet? What if the scariest thing imaginable wasn’t an evil beast, but a person invading your home? Thirteen-year-old Chris is going to have to face her biggest fears when a mysterious woman moves into her home and hijacks her once-perfect family life. Will she make it out alive? Shrouded in fear of the unknown, Feathers and Teeth is a new horror comedy with plenty of bite.

Home-sweet-home turns into a haunted house for 13-year-old Chris when Carol—her stepmother from hell—moves in. Struggling with the recent death of her mother, Chris is convinced her father’s new live-in fiancé is evil, but she just can’t persuade Dad to her point-of-view. When a mysterious and potentially dangerous creature is found in the family’s backyard, Chris assumes it’s a sign from above to eliminate Carol once and for all. This imaginative world premiere—both bone-chilling and wildly funny—brings the notion of dysfunctional family drama to sensationally scary heights.

Written by Charise Castro Smith
Directed by Henry Godinez
September 28 – October 18, 2015 in the Owen

Saturday night, October 10 – 7:00 p.m. Start

Rosehill Cemetery
5800 N. Ravenswood Ave. (Just north of Bryn Mawr)
Chicago, IL

Check out fall’s most ‘spirited’ event! It’s the 4th annual 5K on the grounds of the north side’s historic Rosehill Cemetery. Run or walk on the sprawling 350-acre Victorian-era cemetery that opened in 1864. It’s by far the largest cemetery in the City of Chicago (and second largest in Illinois).

Monuments! Mausoleums! Scenic paths! And then there’s the eternal spirits who reside in Rosehill. Among them: more than 10 Chicago mayors, Oscar Mayer, John G. Shedd, Cubs’ announcer Jack Brickhouse, legendary adman Leo Burnett, Sears founder Julius Rosenwald and scores of Civil War vets are just a few of the souls who call Rosehill home.

In addition, there will also be a post run/walk party.
