  • - As October ushers in the season of fright, LampLight

    Theatre will be debuting a new Mortality Room production. Prepare your heart for the scare of your

    life with “CarnEvil of Death.” This Halloween show plunges to the dark-side as an old beat up

    carnival rolls into a small town with a motley cast of sideshow oddities who cast a demonic curse on a

    group of teens. This chilling production is not for the weak at heart.

    As part of the City Youth League, high school students prepare for the town’s All Hallows Eve

    celebration. Little do they know that their traveling carnival troupe of demons will soon wreak havoc

    and terrorize the souls of the most unexpected victims. The “CarnEvil of Death” is hosted by a

    malevolent evil entity named Furia and assisted by the sinister Drudge Twins. They will introduce you

    to a legion of nefarious demons. These “fallen ones” summon Lucifer, who masquerades as Decessus,

    the Grande Marshal for this disturbing carnival.

    “CarnEvil of Death” exposes the dark realities of true life, which can be very disturbing. When you

    step inside the big tent, the Grande Marshal will introduce you to a world of disbelief. He uses his

    disguised sinister spirits to entice you to believe his lies. Evil necromancers, sorcerers, and conjurors

    are only a part of his haunting menagerie. When this legion of principalities is done with this band of

    teens, their mortal souls will hang in the balance of the “after life.” Perhaps yours will as well.

    LampLight Theatre’s cast and crew are ready to present their ultimate Halloween experience. This

    creepy production is staged under the big tent, complete with sideshow freaks and ominous carnies.

    Mesmerizing illusions and special effects add to this gruesome production. Things aren’t always as

    they seem at 140 Broad Street in Downtown Kingsport. Our fiendish ghouls are preparing to give

    you the scare of a lifetime, if you dare accept our invitation to the “CarnEvil of Death.”

    We do want to warn that Mortality Room’s “CarnEvil of Death” is NOT for everyone. Due to its

    true-to- life situations and scary images, this show is rated PG-13. Performances will run October 7-

    31, Fridays through Sundays and Halloween night. Performances nightly at 6:30 PM with

    additional performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 9:00 PM. The show’s seating is general

    Vision Productions Inc., is a non-profit organization devoted to sharing the gospel through music, seminars, and performing arts. Our mission is to see

    people come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior and to see fellow Christians edified and challenged to a deeper walk of faith.

    admission with a suggested donation of $8. Reservations are recommended in order to guarantee times

    and seating. Concessions will be available from 5:30 until 9:00.

    For Reservations and information please contact the LampLight box office at (423) 343-1766, Monday

    through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or online at click for details.

    - Exchange Place needs no props after dark for a spooky atmosphere, with its shadowy corners of ancient log buildings where storytellers wait to relate chilling tales of the past. Guests assemble at the barn, divide into five groups, each of which is led by a lantern-bearing host to hear all of the five stories wind and through scenes relating to the story just heard.
    Autumn weather in Tennessee can be cool enough to bundle up and windy enough to enhance the evening.
    Many autumn leaves are still clinging to the trees as October moves into November. Watch for our next special event.

    - “Shades of Mark Twain with a touch of Stephen King, as if Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer had found themselves lost in a sinister fairground full of supernatural characters.”

    The #1 longest running American Musical in Broadway History.

    Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse
    Music by John Kander; Lyrics by Fred Ebb
    Based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins
    Script adaptation by David Thompson

    This musical will razzle-dazzle you like no other. It’s the roaring twenties, and Roxie Hart is a small-time chorus dancer who will kill for fame. And after doing just that, she lands behind bars alongside vaudeville star Velma Kelly, who, with the help of hotshot lawyer Billy Flynn, has spun her crime into a media frenzy. When Flynn takes Roxie’s case, he makes her the latest tabloid sensation, setting the stage for singing, dancing cat-fights between the all-too-willing rivals, and featuring one of the greatest Kander and Ebb scores ever.
