In a Halloween-week fundraiser, Seaquam Theatre Company welcomes people to experience a “Haunted Hallway” at the secondary school in North Delta.

The walk-through haunt is planned for the afternoons of Monday, Oct. 30 and Tuesday, Oct. 31, from 3 to 6 p.m. daily.

The company aims to crank up the fear factor “with a spine-chilling journey through a haunted hospital,” according to drama instructor Kayla Gardner, who promises “a hair-raising adventure” for $5 in advance, or $7 at the door.

The “haunt” is a fundraiser for Seaquam Theatre’s spring production of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, “Cinderella,” which hits the school stage from April 29 to May 4, 2024.
