📰 Thank you to Amy Paradysz and Portland Press Herald for featuring the Children's Museum & Theatre of Maine's After Dark Halloween event in Sunday, November 6, 2022's, Scene and Heard: Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram.
🌙 After Dark: Halloween was CMTM's first 21+ night-time event for kids-at-heart at our new facility at Thompson's Point.
🦇 Partygoers engaged in three floors of exhibits, a trick-or-treating adventure, performances from Bunny Wonderland, Chartreuse Money, and Emily Grotz, delicious food from Plot Twist Pretzels pretzels Quiero Café Maine and The Holy Donut, and festive decor, lighting, and activities galore.
🪁 Proceeds from After Dark support CMTM's Community Fund, helping to ensure everyone can access and belong at the Museum & Theatre.
🧡 After Dark: Halloween was made possible by Major Event Sponsor Coffee By Design, Supporting Event Sponsors Burr Signs, Springtide Studio, and the Sarah Delisle at Portside Real Estate Group - Delisle + Sweeton Team, with Underwriting & Partnership from Renys, Thompson's Point, AV Technik, LLC, Balloon Decor by Laur, Trader Joe's, Sputnik Animation, Maine Needhams, Flatbread Company Portland Maine, Old Port Candy Co., Quiero Café Maine, The Holy Donut, OTTO, and Shaw's Supermarket Mill Creek.
🎃 From candy corns to snails, Hall & Oats, to zoo keepers, attendees showed up in their finest costumed revelry to support the Museum & Theatre's inaugural event.
🌈 The purpose of the evening's event was to raise funds, welcome new audiences, and invite adults to find their inner child.
💬 CMTM's Executive Director, Julie Butcher Pezzino, shared, "We hear from a lot of people, especially folks who don't have kids, that they would like to come and check out the new facility. This is the first of what we hope will be a series of events called After Dark for adults who are kids at heart."
💞 Thank you to all our incredible partners, attendees, staff, board, volunteers, and neighbors for making the first After Dark possible and astonishing success.
💬 In the wise words of our friend and theatre associate, Nathan Lapointe, “To see all this come alive, and all these people here, it’s just beautiful.”
We couldn't agree more, Nathan.
📌 Stay tuned for more information on our upcoming events and plans for our After Dark 21+ series.
