As we turned the pages of our calendars and welcomed the month of October, the city of Salem, Mass., came alive for the Halloween season! This home of the infamous 1692 witch trials knows how to celebrate, with ghost tours, special events and month-long festivals.
For the sixth straight year, Bolt PR’s client Christopher Grace is haunting the city with The Salem Haunted Magic Show, a 75-minute live performance filled with magic, mind reading and ghostly illusions. Returning each year with a brand new theme, this year’s show, HYSTERIA: Phobias, focuses on the things that scare us the most.
Our Bolt PR Boston team attended a sneak peek performance to get spooked into the Halloween spirit! Upon arrival, we were greeted by jumping spiders and scary clowns and made our way through a spider web curtain to enter the theater. The St. Peter’s Church Hall Theater is the perfect intimate setting for an up-close and interactive performance. Before the show even started, the themed music had our hearts racing and palms sweating. From the very first act, the surprise of popping balloons and the feat of swallowing syringe needles, Christopher Grace knew exactly what we were afraid of! Then enter ghosts, creepy dolls and all manner of dangerous acts, and we were really on the edge of our seats. Christopher Grace saves the best for last, when he reads the minds of his guests to reveal their deepest phobias! Leaving the theater, and for days following, we kept asking ourselves, “how did he know that?” It was fun, creepy and interactive, with audience members volunteering to participate throughout the show.
This is definitely a show that can’t be missed! With performances through Halloween night, we recommend seeing this to believe it!
