A collection of global ghost stories

Just in time for Halloween, join the Department of Theatre & Dance for an evening of seven spine-tingling ghost stories from around the world. Inspired by the legendary Japanese Kabuki play, "Kaidan+: Something Strange and Spectral" features a contemporary update of this chilling tale of revenge, and also journeys to a sinister boarding school in Africa, a desolate riverbank in Latin America, an otherworldly battlefield in Europe, a haunted bridge in Australia, the bleak expanse of the South Pole, and the menacing wilds of Colorado. Bring a friend—you won’t want to watch this alone!

Cecilia J. Pang directs a cast of CU Boulder Department of Theatre & Dance's talented student performers in the elegant University Theatre.

"Humans have always had a fascination with the paranormal, and many cultures embrace the existence of apparitions. It’s in this spirit (pun intended) that CU Boulder Associate Professor of Theatre Cecilia J. Pang conceived the Department of Theatre & Dance’s Halloween event 'Kaidan+: Something Strange and Spectral,' an evening of seven chilling ghost stories from around the world."
