Welcome back to this edition of cheap date! Today we’ll jump into the final hoorah before Halloween and talk about the Drama Club Haunted House.

For some, a trip to the circus is a joyous experience, with animals, jugglers, and snacks. For others, there’s one thing that ruins it all: clowns. But everyone should be afraid of the clowns at this year’s circus-themed Drama Club Haunted House. The “Cirque de la Mort” features a clown named Smiley, who’s not your typical circus performer. He loves to see people smile, but unfortunately, he’s not very good at cheering people up. He’s developed a bad habit of becoming angry (to say the least) when people don’t enjoy his act. Watch out!

For the more faint of heart, there’s a family-friendly hour before the main event starts. It will feature face painting, games, and more! Both events will occur on October 30 in the Studio Theater. Tickets are $5, and proceeds will help support the Penn Drama Club. The family friendly hour will run from 6-7pm, and the main event will be from 7:30-10pm.
