Halloween Isn’t Cancelled….
As “It’s Just a Bunch of Hocus Pocus” Returns To
The Kelsey Theater October 30-31
One of South Florida’s favorite Halloween shows, It’s Just a Bunch of Hocus Pocus* (previously Hocus Pocus Live) is landing at The Kelsey Theater in Lake Park for two nights of holiday fun on October 30 and 31 (performances are at 7 pm and 9:30 pm each night; each runs 1 hour and 15 minutes).
Following eight consecutive years of instant sell-outs, the wildly popular all-ages tribute show brings Halloween’s most beloved classic to life with incredible detail. The audience is invited to take a dive into ‘90s nostalgia as South Florida’s top drag performers transform into the film’s iconic characters. All are invited to join this limited-seating, socially distanced event as they tell the story of three wacky witches, accidentally resurrected by teen pranksters on Halloween night in 1993. The dynamic lead cast includes Nicole Halliwell as Winifred Sanderson, Calypso Monroe as Sarah Sanderson and Nicky Monet as Mary Sanderson.
Produced and created by South Florida’s drag mastermind Nicole Halliwell (TLC’s I am Jazz, America’s Got Talent, Queenz The Drag Experience), It’s Just a Bunch of Hocus Pocus boasts intricately detailed sets, eerily uncanny lookalikes, replica props and costuming, and more in this immersive stage spectacle. Going light years beyond your standard “drag show,” there’s nothing quite like this! Prior to each performance, audiences can enjoy “Wicked Villains,” a “delightfully evil preshow,” starring the cast of Queenz The Drag Experience as even more fabulous female impersonators transform into such favorite cartoon villains like Maleficent, Ursula, Cruella DeVille, and The Evil Queen.
“Never before has a drag tribute show gone above and beyond to re-create the magic of a cult classic like this,” said Halliwell. “Like watching your favorite film unfold before your eyes, adults and children, alike, can quote and sing along with their favorite movie moments!”
