Brookdale Haunted Theater Returns Friday, Oct. 13

Residents are invited to navigate nearly one mile of ghouls, monsters and terrifying set pieces this fall when The Haunted Theater returns to Brookdale Community College’s Performing Arts Center (PAC) in Lincroft.

The attraction, designed and operated by more than 100 local actors, technicians and Brookdale theater students, offers a sprawling maze of themed rooms populated with an “undead army” of monsters, zombies, evil clowns and more.

The Haunted Theater also features an interactive 3-D blacklight maze, outdoor scares and other obstacles designed to test even the bravest of Halloween adventurers.

“In recognition of the Haunted Theater’s 15th anniversary, we have created all new sets, all new monsters, and the longest and most immersive experience we have ever offered,” said PAC coordinator Sherri Vanderspiegel. “This is one haunted attraction you do not want to miss.”

More than 100 students, alumni and local actors will stage the 15th anniversary Haunted Theater beginning on Oct. 13.
