Students came together to put on a haunted house for peers and community members.

Haskell students from the Thunder Bird Theatre department came together with other student volunteers to put on a fiendishly good time for their peers in celebration of Halloween. Haskell’s Haunted Maze of Terror was held at the Pow Wow grounds from 10/28-10/30. “They say the maze was created as a punishment for the human race. Not everyone is a beast. They say that deep in the maze, there is a family who actually survived and went insane inside of the maze. Like the monsters, they now find there sustenance from human flesh. No one escapes the maze alive. Can you?” This is the Facebook slogan that quickly had students buzzing.
Student volunteers came together the week before opening night to plan out the maze and secure materials for construction. The maze itself went through many different stages before the students found just the right combination to make the multi room maze a success. The maze featured an extensive cast of frightful characters. Evil clowns, zombies, dark men, and psychopaths tormented Haskell students as they made their way through the maze. Each room had a different theme and obstacle to overcome such as crawling through a tunnel complete with spider weeds blocking the path.
The most memorable part in my opinion was at the end of the maze where students would exit only to be chased by monsters back to the dorms. Thanks to the Thunderbird Theatre for a great event. If you would like to get involved with the Theatre club be sure to head to Tamanade Hall.
