Top Two Things To Do In Owensboro This Weekend: October 23-25

The Haunting of Hill House

Everyone loves a good scary movie to celebrate Halloween, but what about a live action theatrical performance to really get the goosebumps popping?  Theatre Workshop of Owensboro presents “The Haunting of Hill House” on October 23 and 24 at 7:30 p.m.  It will be the first time TWO does a performance at the Owensboro Convention Center so that a larger crowd can safely social distance and enjoy the show.  “The Haunting of Hill House” is a chilling and mystifying story of mounting terror in which a small group of “psychically receptive” people are brought together in Hill House, a brooding, mid-Victorian mansion known as a place of evil and “contained ill will.” Led by the learned Dr. Montague, who is conducting research in supernatural phenomena, the visitors have come to probe the secrets of the old house and to draw forth the mysterious powers that it is alleged to possess—powers which have brought madness and death to those who have lived there in the past.  Tickets are available at or by calling the convention center during normal business hours – Mon-Fri 8a-5p at 270-297-9932.  Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for students and $10 for TWO members.

The Princess Bride

Perhaps the most quoted movie in history will literally come to life at the RiverPark Center on Saturday, October 24 at 7 p.m.  The audience of “Princess Bride Participation” is encouraged to dress up like their favorite characters from the movie and shout out lines as the movie plays.  Jaynan Day-Wheeler has been working hard to create a Participation Sheet to engage the audience even more as the film rolls on. The showing encourages audience members to openly recite movie lines and engage in the activities provided. The Princess Bride Shadow Cast will provide extra engagement as the film plays.  Tickets are $12 and can be purchased here.
