Covey Center for the Art…
Shakespeare’s Much Ado is a genuinely brilliant comedy and one of his most timeless classics. It is a great love story, the story of two bright and lonely and wounded people, Beatrice and Benedick, both of whom have renounced love forever, who nonetheless find each other. But it’s also about Claudio and Hero, two lovers poisoned by slander and gossip and the nasty political machinations of Don John. It’s about life and romance and taking a chance on love again. But death is a constant presence, and under all that is war. What better way to express this death and war than with…zombies! They represent the ever-present human fear of death, a terror that follows when the dead rot in their graves, but still won’t quite stay dead. And they crave brains, the site and source of human personality, of consciousness itself, of what we call the soul. Much Ado About Zombies uniquely explores the dynamics of love and life (Beatrice and Benedick) versus hate and death (Don John and the zombies). And trapped in the middle are Claudio and Hero, the innocent victims, trapped between life and death, love and hatred.

The Echo Theatre is proud to present Shakespeare's classic tale of General Macbeth; whose ambitious wife urges him to use wicked means in order to take the throne. This classic play is considered one of Shakespeare's most powerful works and explores themes of revenge, ambition, and the corrosive psychological effects of an unethical rise to power. The Echo's creepy adaptation arrives just in time for Halloween. You've never seen “The Scottish Play” like this before. Kris Wing Jennings says “Why this production? This time of year lends itself to theatre and performances that explore the frightening elements of the supernatural. We've chosen to use the Greek myth of Pandora to inform our staging choices as well as to create an environment that is suspenseful and scary. Our witches play a much more integral part of the action than is written in Shakespeare's script. Our production is also interactive. Audience members are invited to sit with the actors onstage, bringing the visceral production right up to the audience.”
McCoard's Mystery Corn M…
The McCoard’s Mystery Maze is sponsored by McCoard’s Garden Center. The corn maze has three different mazes at varying levels of difficulty and length. The Kids maze is .3 miles long, our Adventurous maze is 1.6 miles and the Insane maze is 3 miles. Admission allows you access to all three mazes. We have designed the maze to be an interactive activity that makes a trip inside the maze more than just a haphazard stroll. Solve a crime scene investigation while in the maze. Option 1: The Farm Scene Tracks. Farmer Joe’s pie is missing. We need you to find out who stole it. Six of the animals took off through the corn maze with the stolen pie. Navigate the corn maze to find all the tracks, and then match up the prints to all the animals that are guilty of the pie thievery. Option 2: Farm Scene Investigation (similar to Clue©). Farmer Joe is missing and we need your help to find out who kidnapped him. There are seven animal suspects, weapons, and locations that we need you to investigate. Players collect all the clues on a punch card that they take through the maze to solve the mystery and earn an FSI badge. Zombie Paintball Patrol: In the spring of 2014, the Head Farmer at McCoard’s Garden Center began experimenting with the cross-breeding of plants, hoping to create a new breed of corn that would never die and produce fruit year-round. The farmer was very close to creating a breed of corn that would never die, even if deprived of sun and water. Then, everything went horribly wrong. There was a big chemical spill which affected all of the people working in and around the greenhouses. The people who survived haunt the greenhouses at night, feeding on human flesh. They feel no emotion and sense no pain. They do not die even when deprived of water. They appear to be walking dead men or ZOMBIES!!! That’s why we need your help. We’ll send you out in teams to kill as many zombies as you can. If you see someone infected, shoot to kill or you may not survive the night.
