Playlab NYC is proud to present Humorously Horrendous Haunted Hideaway as part of the 20th Annual New York International Fringe Festival - FringeNYC. We are thrilled that this will be our fifth presentation at FringeNYC, and Playlab NYC will bring back our love of puppetry and puns. Haunted Hideaway is created for anyone who adores classic children's television and local Shock Theater horror hosts.

Haunted Hideaway is a hangout comedy built around life in the "Haunted Hideaway." Join us as two friends, Ernest Headstone and Ima Knotgoth tell stories, meet guests, and indulge in silly stunts with regular characters, both human and puppets. What transpires is a fast-paced hour of frightening fun that includes stories of relentless banality and heedless children as well as featuring sounds and stories of the supernatural.
