Event Information

Libretto by TONY ASARO

Based on the Novel by RAY BRADBURY

Led by a mysterious guide, a group of teenagers embark on an unforgettable journey to find their friend Pipkin, who has disappeared on Halloween night. Through their search, the costumed adventurers learn about the cultural and historical traditions that have led to the contemporary celebration of Halloween today.

Based on Ray Bradbury’s beloved novel, The Halloween Tree has been an audience favorite since ALT’s first libretto workshop. After two piano-vocal workshops, we are thrilled to invite you to join us to explore the magical worlds of Ancient Egypt, Medieval France, and the mystical Mexican “Dia de los Muertos” in Theo Popov’s technicolor orchestration.
