An Occult Magic Beach Party an Cuttlefish Cove

One year ago, Shawn, the town’s most popular teenage surfer, mysteriously disappeared. Presumed dead, his fellow teeny-bopper friends are going to hold a seance to try to find out what really happened. Was he murdered by Burton, his jealous best friend? Kidnapped by Cheez-It, the high school nerd? Jay Jay thinks it was alien sharks… Or maybe it was BONGO JOHNNY?

Equal parts silly and spooky, Surf Seance is horror-kitsch theatre at its best.

Enter an abandoned Tiki Bar to gather clues and witness plot twists, until the final climactic reveal of what really happened at Cuttlefish Cove. Prepare for bikinis, bongos, ghosts and more at this interactive performance parody of 1960s teen surfer films.
