“This Halloween season, one need go only as far as Lightree Studios in Salt Lake City to capture the spirit of the spooky season in Scaffold Theatre’s Nevermore!” – Front Row Reviewers

Salt Lake offers so many wonderful things at Halloween time and Nevermore is something unique. Designed for the haunted house enthusiast but packed with enough story to satisfy the avid SLC theatre goer, we’re proud to be a part of Utah’s Halloween Community. If you are looking for a fun Halloween event, a zany Halloween activity filled with both laughter and frights bring your Halloween buddies and come to Salt Lake’s Interactive Halloween Show. Who knows, you may even win the Best Costume at our Nevermore Halloween Costume Contest! And maybe even meet the cast of Nevermore after the show. Once the show is over please feel free to take pix or vids on our spooktacular set with your pack of ghouls, and maybe you’ll be lucky enough to get a shot with Mr. Edgar Allen Poe himself! Being a local Salt Lake Theatre we’re also very proud to have developed this homegrown, super fun Halloween attraction right in the SLC Downtown Adjacent area. We love that we’ve turned a simple wear-house in Glendale, UT into a spooktrifying portal in to the heart of Halloween. We hope you’ll join us for some Halloween fun right here in Salt Lake! One of our goals is to make Halloween 2022 in Salt Lake City a holiday to remember!

Mr. Edgar Allen Poe (Barrett Ogden)

Nevermore was created by Scaffold Theatre Founder and Artistic Director, Julie-Anne Liechty. A long time Halloween enthusiast, Ms. Liechty wanted to bring the spooktacular fun of a haunted house together with storytelling. “I love going to spook alleys at Halloween time,” she says, “but find myself wanting something more than just jump scares. A while ago I had the idea of combining classic Halloween stories with live performers in a haunted house kind of setting and then seasoning the whole thing with a bit of humor. To me that sounded like Halloween Heaven. I’m hoping when others see the show, they’ll feel the same way too!”
