DETROIT - The Detroit Opera House will hold its fourth-annual Halloween party and fundraiser "Haunted in the House" on Friday, Oct. 26, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. The event supports Michigan Opera Theatre's world-class opera and dance programming and educational outreach.
Once again, the historic former movie palace's magnificent grand lobby and lounges will transform into floors of eerie fun, including dancing to beats from DJ Tom T, specialty drinks, a performance by the Detroit Circus, and fortune telling from the Boston Tea Room. Costumed attire is encouraged, with cash prizes awarded for the best costumes. Shutterbooth will provide spooky souvenir photos, with Subway and Sander's Fine Chocolatiers bringing midnight treats for all.
A VIP lounge will feature early entrance beginning at 7:30 p.m. with a private DJ, and an open bar and hors d'oeuvres from Lakeland Catering until 10 p.m.
"Haunted in the House" began in 2009 as an effort to engage the next generation of arts supporters and encourage them to take ownership of the Detroit Opera House beyond its annual "BravoBravo!" event. This year's committee includes Detroit young professionals David Brethen, Jeanine Fields, Jennifer Frayer, Charlene Minatee, Katie O'Toole and Miguel Pope.
Media partners include Metromix.com, 93.9FM The River, and Real Detroit.
Tickets are $35 in advance ($40 day-of); VIP tickets are $75 ($80 day-of) and include an event preview and VIP lounge, and valet parking. Guests must be 21 or older.
Tickets are available at www.HauntedInTheHouse.com. Tickets are also available at the Detroit Opera House ticket office (1526 Broadway, Detroit, 48226), and by phone at 313-237-SING.
