HALLOWEEN STORIES

What’s scarier than the monster that lives under your bed? An October without some frightfully good programs to celebrate Halloween! We can’t do anything about the monster (sorry), but we can help with the Halloween entertainment. Take a look at what’s in store, including a spooky episode of Arthur.

And so begins a haunting tale of creature vs. creator, in KTWU’s local production - 1940’s radio-style drama from A.R.T.S., Inc.
