Aurora Theatre presents Goosebumps: Phantom of the Auditorium, The Musical, October 19–22

Families invited to celebrate the spooky season onstage in downtown Lawrenceville


Theatergoers, beware! Goosebumps: Phantom of the Auditorium, The Musical will play a limited public engagement as part of Aurora Theatre’s Learning Library from October 19–October 22. Adapted from the hair-raising children’s book Goosebumps: Phantom of the Auditorium by R.L. Stine, this not-too-spooky adventure follows two aspiring young thespians named Brooke and Zeke as they embark on a likely-haunted middle school play. From the best-selling children’s author R.L. Stine, the Goosebumps book series has risen to great acclaim on nightstands of generations of kids past and present. Aurora Theatre’s Learning Library series is educational outreach that provides school groups the opportunity to experience fully-staged professional productions performed on the Aurora Theatre mainstage on weekday mornings.

“Kids and kids at heart will absolutely love this silly mystery,” says Jaclyn Hofmann, director of Goosebumps: Phantom of the Auditorium, The Musical. “The suspenseful story will keep audiences on their feet, toeing the line between spine-shivering scares and humor, right in time for Halloween. We are proud to bring this worldwide bestselling book series to the stage for a theatrical rendition, Aurora Theatre style!”

The classic story, which achieved a 2003 Guinness Book of World Records nod for bestselling book of all time, is now celebrating its 25th anniversary. The narrative has mesmerized generations with the tale of Brooke and Zeke’s adventure with an old, rumored to be cursed play about a phantom. Strange happenings keep disrupting rehearsals and students can’t figure out whether the interruptions are a coincidence, a not-so-funny joke or if the curse might actually be real. Under the direction of Hofmann and with musical direction by Ann-Carol Pence, Yuka Sekine is set to star as Brooke Rodgers with Branden Cleveland as Zeke Matthews. Perfect for elementary and middle-school aged children, Goosebumps: Phantom of the Auditorium, The Musical is the hidden gem, age-appropriate solution for parents looking for some authentic, festive fun during the spooky season.

Following exclusive school field trip performances from September 28 – October 20, Goosebumps: Phantom of the Auditorium, The Musical will play for the public at Aurora Theatre October 19–October 22, 2017.
