Before Dark: Thrilling Treats & Ghostly Beats

Gunter Theatre

Greenville, South Carolina, Circa 1910. The sun begins to set over the town, and the night grows quiet and still. Kids are adjusting every last detail of their costumes in preparation for a night of Trick or Treating. While most families make their rounds through the well-known neighborhoods, a handful of kids break off from the group. In hopes to reveal the unspoken Greenville secret, they head to the abandoned mansion along the Reedy River. Only a few feet from the house, the kids start to feel the cool mist that accompanies the river. Right as they are ready to turn around and forget all about the house, one brave girl steps up to the door and rings the bell…

Carolina Ballet Theatre presents Before Dark: Thrilling Treats & Ghostly Beats is inspired by Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. This unique dance production is created specifically for children. Before Dark is choreographed under the artistic direction of Hernan Justo. 

Bring the entire family and experience the suspense and thrill of Before Dark. Kids are encouraged to attend the production dressed in their Halloween costumes. Following the production, we will continue the fun with Trick or Treating down Candy Lane and a character meet and greet held in the Lobby of the Gunter Theatre.
