‘The Realm of Fire’: An Interactive Theater Adventure

‘The Realm of Fire’: An Interactive Theater Adventure

Northampton, MA – Those seeking a Halloween adventure are invited to ‘The Realm of Fire’ on October 14 - 16, 2016 (Fri & Sat 5:30-8:30pm, Sun 2:30-5pm). For one weekend only, theater-goers can help the characters free the forest from the dragon that has held them captive. In this family-friendly theater experience, you will interact with elves, dwarves and fairies as you walk a half-mile trail through Valley View Farm’s beautiful wooded grounds in Haydenville, MA. Groups, lead by one of the characters in the show, depart every 15 minutes for a 45-minute walking adventure along a candle lit trail (bring flashlights). Food trucks and pick-your-own pumpkins make this an experience you and your family won’t soon forget. Tickets and more information available at
