Hocus Poke Us

The Annual Hallowqueen Staged Reading

The witches are back and there’s hell to pay! A group of “teens” resurrects three drag queens in 1993 Salem for a Halloween they’ll never forget. The cult classic film goes full camp parody in this staged reading with outrageous improv and musical numbers for the annual Kansas City tradition in its 8th year!

For the first time ever, “Hocus Poke Us!” comes to Kansas City’s historic Folly Theater for a night of mischief and mayhem! Costumes encouraged, masks (Halloween or otherwise) required upon entry.
