Dr. Diabolic does Halloween — and the Flamenco?
The devious Dr. Diabolic has some frightfully fun-filled adventures planned for this creepy week of Halloween and Dia de los Muertos. The Doctor’s Traveling Roadshow & Fun‐Time Variety Hour will host two different shows, guaranteed to put the “kill” in Michael and the “boogie” in boogeyman.Halloween evening Dr. Diabolic and his nefarious assistant, Nadia Neuroleptic, will be showcasing a special screening of John Carpenter’s classic original Halloween film, starring the pre- Activiated Jamie Lee Curtis. The presentation includes the short documentary film, You Can’t Kill the Bogeyman: 35 Years of Halloween, directed by Fangoria’s Justin Beahm. There will also be a costume contest and local artist Marty Freetage will have a new Halloween poster redo print available for purchase.
HALLOWEEN COSTUME CONTEST DETAILS: Costumes must follow these guidelines – no masks, no weapons, no nudity. No harmful or potentially harmful substances will be allowed. This can include, but is not limited, to water, silly string, flames, fireworks, cigarettes, and any other substance that can be fired, launched, or dripped. Everything that comes on stage with you should leave with you.
The Dia de los Muertos show will run in conjunction with the Phoenix First Friday art walk event. Entrance to the Phoenix Art Museum is free, but the Whiteman Hall events are $12 for Halloween and $15 for the Day of the Dead Variety Show. Both Dr. Diabolic Shows are sponsored by Bookman’s Entertainment Exchange.
