MIDDLETOWN – The Middletown Arts Center (MAC) will host the family-friendly Zany Zombie Bash, suitable for all ages from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19, at the arts center, 36 Church St.
Attendees will enjoy Halloween crafts, face painting and glow-in-the-dark drawing fun with arts center instructor Laurie Ruggeri and friends. The event will also feature a costume parade, a Monster Mash dance freeze and a pre-event concert performance by Miss Sherri, award-winning children’s singer and songwriter.
Prior to the Zany Zombie Bash, Miss Sherri will host a Dress Up Fun concert in the theater from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Attendees can join Miss Sherri, Dancing Deena, Go Go Green and International kids music sensation Mr. Ray for a live concert filming where children of all ages are invited to dance and sing in their costumes. Mr. Ray has performed with Bruce Springsteen, Meat Loaf and many other celebrity rockers, but he has always said his toughest critics are the kids. The concert is $5 for kids and adults, children under 1 are free.
The cost to attend the Zany Zombie Bash is $5 per person, $20 per family. Attend both the Miss Sherri Concert and Zombie Bash and pay a discounted rate of $8 per child or adult.
