Unlike other Halloween attractions, SCT fabricates all works by hand--nothing is store bought. All props, puppets, costumes, score, sets and stories are original. The show has no recognizable Hollywood characters, maintains a general absence of clichéd gore, and tailors each show to the philosophy of “The Hero’s Journey,” the classic mythical story structure that has aided George Lucas’s Star Wars Trilogy & J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter Series. Small groups, accompanied by a masked, silent guide, are lead through several interconnecting sets. Along the way, SCT participants interact with elaborate puppet characters, collect clues & ultimately decide their own final.
