Ghost Stories

In the Park... In the Dark!

Event date: 10/2/2020 7:00 PM - 10/4/2020 7:00 PM Export event
Ghost Stories



Because of precautions due to COVID-19, there will be NO TICKETS AT THE DOOR. We are following the directives of the Park District, CDC and state of Illinois.

Tickets were sold in advance at the park district. If you purchased tickets through them, you are on our list. Just come to the show you purchased, we'll check you in at the door, and enjoy!

See below to remember the dates and times and a google map to the Pavilion.


No Ticket? Great News!

Because of the sell-out, and because we want to satisfy your urge for a fun, scary story, we're creating a virtual story telling session.

Instead of Ghost Stories in the Park... In the Dark, it'll be
Ghost Stories on Zoom ... In your Room!, or 
Ghost Stories on your screen ... to make you Scream!, or...

Well, we'll keep working on the title, but you get what we mean.

Three chances to watch!

Fridays, October 16, 23, and 30, at 7:00pm

We'll send you a link via email 24 hours before the show. You'll have 48 hours to watch it before it disappears!

Watch it on your phone, your laptop, your smart TV. Gather the family around and enjoy together.

Only $10 for as many as can fit around your screen.

October 16 | October 23 | October 30


For Those Attending This Weekend

A Naperville tradition! A night of fun for audiences of all ages!

It's on! But we're taking precautions to minimize the transmission of covid-19. Keep reading below the map.

A group of story tellers delight the audience with chilling and thrilling ghost stories; some old, some original from the story tellers.

We do 2 kinds of shows. The first is more silly and not too scary so younger kids (5 and up) are welcome to that one; then we do a slightly scarier and more cerebral batch of stories that get under the skin, so older kids (teens and up) usually like this show more.

COVID-19 Precautions

We're following the rules of Restore Illinois Phase 4, so group limits and seating will be strictly enforced.

The rules say there's a maximum of 50 people at the event. Since we have actors and staff under 10 people, we'll set the number of tickets at 40 per show.

TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT. More on that below.

Individuals must sit 6ft from the next person in the row. Family groups can sit together, but must keep 6ft between their group edge and that of the next group. If not enough room in the row, ushers will direct attendees to other seats. Attendees not complying will be asked to comply and if they refuse will be asked to leave. Park district police oversee the area and will be brought in if necessary.

Folding chairs will be set up and spaced apart. Families may move the chairs into a pod. Please make sure you are 6 feet away from any other chairs or pods.

Let's all do our part to have an enjoyable evening as safely as possible!

Juice and Cider and Cookies has been a long-standing after-show treat, but in practicing an abundance of caution under the circumstances, no refreshments will be served after the show. Sorry!
