NORWELL MARINER – The Company Theatre in Norwell held a Halloween party with Disney villains making appearances and an interactive movie night to accompany games and other activities Oct. 27.

Trick or Treat with the Villains had costumed children dancing and playing games with classic Disney villains including Captain Hook from “Peter Pan,” Syndrome from “The Incredibles” and the Evil Queen from “Snow White.”

Activities included a dance party on stage, a treasure hunt with Captain Hook and “poison” apple bobbing with the Evil Queen.

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of “Hocus Pocus,” organizers of the event also held a Hex-a-long Hocus Pocus where the film was showed and children were encouraged to cheer, laugh and sing along during an interactive screening of the movie.

Children were also given a goody bags and free pizza for those who purchased tickets for both events.

Seventy five children attended and enjoyed dancing and singing with Academy of the Company Theatre’s teachers and local actors volunteering their time to give the kids an evening of Halloween fun.

“Trick or Treat with the Villains came up as a fun way to do a family-friendly Halloween party and as a follow up to our successful Princess Party last summer,” said Corey Cadigan, an organizer of the event. “We hope that the children have fun and immerse themselves in the fun of these classic villains. Instead of just experiencing them through a tv screen, they get to live it for a few hours here at The Company Theatre!”
