The Ghastly Dreadfuls

Center for Puppetry Arts

through October 31, 2015

The Ghastly Dreadfuls, created by Jon Ludwig and Jason Hines, returned to the Center for Puppetry Arts in time for All Hallows Eve and a jolly good time for all. This one is for the more-or-less adults among us, and they say you should be old enough to buy booze if you wish to attend.

The Dreadfuls are made up by Scott DePoy, Kristin Haverty, Jason Hines, Jon Ludwig, T.T. Mahoney, Spencer G. Stephens and Reay Kaplan. With 5 of them providing the music live on stage, and each of them handling roles in 15 skits featuring great puppetry, classic costumes, high stepping dancing, and wanna-sing-along musical numbers.

You may think that puppets are just for kids; and while the youngsters do enjoy visiting this Atlanta theatre and museum; this is one that is playing to full houses of adults and every one of them in the audience leaves having had a really enjoyable break from the news of the day.

So, don’t be afraid to try something different and maybe a bit eerie. When selecting seats, the better views are from rows C or higher, as some action takes place over the puppet set. You can read more and see times and tickets at and buy online or by phone.
