"Campy horror, personal growth for the tween protagonists, and a supernatural twist in the final pages...The young cast owns their characters' idiosyncrasies like natural personal traits." — Lee Williams, The Oregonian

"[Stan] Foote is always a pro in everything he does and it shows with his casting of the young people." — Dennis Sparks

"It’s easy to be drawn into Stan Foote's stage and the story, forgetting that you’re in a theater seat, at least until your neighbor gasps or laughs." – OR Arts Watch

"The best moment of the show was when the characters practiced their lines for the high school 'play'; the characters’ stilted and sincere line readings contrasted sharply and comically with the actors’ dramatic talent, making for quite the meta experience." – PDX Parent

Live Sketches

OCT invites several illustrators and comic artists to sketch the show from the audience. Check out their work here!
