Dress Rehearsal, Thursday Oct 2, 2014

This is a reminder to everyone; we will be having a dress rehearsal this Thursday Oct 2nd at the Hall School house at 5955 W. Hurt Rd in Hall.  We will meet at 6:30 pm to get everyone assigned their parts and take a tour of the Haunt.
Fall is our favorite time of the year with the leaves changing, the frost, the pumpkins and the fall smells in the air and we are very excited about this year’s Haunted House.  We are getting a lot of publicity and the word has gotten out that Hall’s Haunted Halls is one of the best in the state.    We are expecting this to be a record year for attendance and we so appreciate you, our volunteers for making it all happen!   If you need to contact us please call Randy Marsh at 317-430-8023

We still have a few spots to fill, and we ask that if you have a friend or relative that would enjoy helping us, we would appreciate your bringing them with you or inviting them to come.
We’re going to have a great time and a great Haunting season!
