The Night of a Thousand Scares – Youth Theatre Northwest

Our October 24 Drive-In Fundraising Event is sold out, but you can stream the whole program from home, which includes the three films, interviews with the casts and screenwriters, and an encore performance of our spooky original radio drama Maureen, for a special price of $20 per household.


Join YTN on Saturday, October 24 at 7:00 pm for a Special Drive-In Fund Raising Event. Held in the east parking lot of Emmanuel Episcopal Church, this event will feature all three short horror films, interviews with the casts and screenwriters, and an encore performance of our spooky original radio drama Maureen, written by Seattle theater veteran, Gillian Jorgensen, and directed by YTN alum Rachel Carlson.

Thrill to a trio of original short horror films starring YTN student actors, directed by YTN educator and honest-to-goodness Paranormal Investigator Kim Douthit. 

Discover what's real and what's unreal in Scream Scene, by Martina Dalton, featuring a group of theater students holding rehearsal when one-by-one the cast and crew start to disappear. Then in The Vanishing Tree, by Maggie Lee, Nadia can make all of her problems disappear with one wish, but is she willing to lose her soul in the bargain? And in Den Busemann, by Kate Swenson, the Nelson family has bargained with the supernatural Busemann for years, but when things go too far it breaks free and seeks revenge — the kind that lasts for generations. 

Plus, The Night of a Thousand Scares short horror films will be available for streaming from October 25 through November 1. Streaming shows are "pay what you can" to help YTN bring you thrills all year round.
