Because one Halloween is never enough, Red Bennies goes grimm for a night of ghastly and gruesome cabaret entertainment! Featuring the very best in circus, song, and sketch, this masquerade party brings together the living, dead,
and undecided for an evening of ghoulish fun you’ll never forget!

Annabel Green and Letitia Kearney, the delightfully demented ladies behind Full-Skirted Productions, and their extravagant two-woman show, The Object Of My Affection.
