Don’t miss ‘Heidi’s Monkeys’ – LAST WEEKEND

Come experience Central PA’s terrifying new Halloween tradition – Only two performances remain!

13-year-old Heidi Mayerson is trapped inside the attic of a small church. The priest believes the visions she sees are messages from God, but others believe a far more sinister force is at work. Then, there are the wounds on her wrists. No matter how many times she covers them, they still won’t stop bleeding. This year, the audience is part of the show as Heidi’s secret is finally revealed in this stunning, tension-filled horror, sure to be unforgettable, theater experience.

Rated R for Profanity, Excessive Blood, and Horror. Complementary coffee will be served to all guests courtesy of Way Cool Beans beans. Free Tarot Card readings from Lady Olivia of Widow’s Walk.

Fri, 10/20 & Sat, 10/21.  Doors open at 6:30pm.  Show starts at 7pm. Limited seating available.

Octofest: a funk fall festival… First time event showcases city’s creative community

We had a GREAT feature in the Showcase Section of the Williamsport Sun Gazette.  A huge thank you to Arts and Entertainment editor, Bethany Wiegand, for helping us get the word out there about our inaugural Funky, Fall Festival – Octofest!  Learn about what we have happening & when at www.pajamafactory.net/Octofest2017 –  We hope to see you there!

The Pajama Factory, 1307 Park Ave., is trying something new — and funky — this weekend with their inaugural event, Octofest. Taking place 6-10 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 7-10 p.m. Saturday, the Pajama Factory will be a place for everyone, with music, crafts, food, art and more.

According to Danielle Velkoff, head of events and business development at the Pajama Factory, the name for the event came from a brainstorming session with Kyle Huggins, Factory tenant and owner of Kyle Huggins Design & Photography.  “We wanted to find a name that represented our arts festival happening in October, but that would also embody the quirky, offbeat side of our creative community,” Velkoff said. Huggins came up with the idea of calling the event “Octofest” and using an octopus as the graphics. “At first we laughed, but then we realized it was spot on. Each of its eight legs representing all the different aspects of what we have happening — not only at this event in particular — but our community as a whole. It was perfect, fun and funky, just like us,” she continued.
