A Howling Good Time
Claw your way over to the L.A. Zoo for a hair-raising Halloween shindig like no other. Thrill to classic tales of the macabre courtesy of Drama After Dark. Gasp as animals such as the komodo dragon devour their All Hollow’s Eve feasts. Hear true tales of nature’s blood-suckers, as well as creatures odd, slimy and strange. Undead (aka live) music, viciously-good victuals and more spooky surprises await all who dare enter.
Eerie Event Highlights
In Drama After Dark: A Night of the Macabre with Poe and Gorey, actors of the Guild of St. George will perform haunting Edgar Allan Poe tales such as “The Raven” and “The Black Cat” and Edward Gorey’s ghastly “Gashlycrumb Tinies.” Goosebumps guaranteed.
The rockabilly beats of So-Cal Rocket Dynamics and spooky tunes spun by DJ Johnny Hawkes will have visitors shivering, shaking and quaking.
Animal keepers will enlighten the curious with fearsome feedings and terrifying talks throughout the evening.
Those guests deemed Scariest, Best Animal and Most Original in our Costume Contest will win the to-die-for grand prize: VIP behind-the-scenes docent tours.
