Join Night Flight’s 8th Annual Fright Night – A Halloween Circus! This year we are thrilled to announce that Fright Night will be accompanied by the gorgeous live music of Fever, who blends haunting and sultry blues ballads with witchy Latin pop and cabaret fusion to create a truly unique sound that is always unforgettable. This year’s event includes goblins swinging on aerial silks, dancing black light skeletons, a ghost spinning on the trapeze, and fairy royalty twirling on aerial straps at Alberta Rose Theatre. This show is considered to be ‘PG13’ – Minors are ok when accompanied by a parent or guardian.
