Have the fright of your life at Geordie’s Halloween Double Feature gala! Join Geordie Theatre at the Segal Centre on October 22nd at 6:30PM and October 23rd at 4:00PM for our annual fundraiser and the best Halloween party in town. Come dressed in your best (or scariest!) costume, or dress as you are comfortable, and enjoy one of Geordie’s favourite Halloween traditions: a double feature!
A special gala treat, catch an exclusive screening of Geordie’s short film, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, a collection of delightfully short and spooky stories recounted on screen. Filmed by 1PXL, directed by and starring staff, Board, local celebrities, and friends of Geordie, audiences are guaranteed a good scare and a great time! Afterwards, enjoy our mainstage production of Frankenstein, Kidoons’ reinvention of the sci-fi monster classic, a living comic book brought to the stage!
Each gala double feature is followed by a cocktail and catered reception, as well as a silent auction and a raffle. Proceeds of the Halloween Double Feature gala will help Geordie Theatre continue to bring its annual 2Play School Tour, Canada’s longest running and furthest reaching annual theatre tour, to children across Eastern Canada, present its Mainstage Series to families here in Montreal each season, and run Geordie Theatre School.1

From the creators of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (“Magical!… Jaw dropping!” – the New York Times) and Jungle Book (“A Must See” – Broadway World) comes a new theatrical adaptation of the original Sci-Fi, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Frankenstein is the third in the “connection” trilogy of high-tech classics from Kidoons.
This electrifying new stage production uses immersive comic book design and playful theatrical techniques to reanimate the sci-fi classic for a new generation! Co-created by Rick Miller, Craig Francis and Paul Van Dyck, this version adapts the novel to confront modern issues of climate change, artificial intelligence, and our relationship to technology… monsters of our own making! When a young comic book artist named Mary discovers the journal of Dr. Victor Frankenstein, she’s drawn into his uncanny story of secret experiments to conquer death. She discovers that we all need to face our own fears… before they face us!
Our online auction is filled with a variety of exciting items, from getaway trips and theatre tickets, to signed NHL merchandise and stunning paintings, to restaurant gift cards and much more!

Geordie Theatre is located on the unceded Indigenous lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) nation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Tiotià:ke (known as Montréal) has existed as a meeting place of many First Nation peoples, including but not limited to the Abenaki, Anishinaabeg (Algonquin), and the Huron-Wendat. We extend our deepest respect to the elders of these communities and to all Indigenous peoples who carry the history of this island’s land and waters – caring for it and calling it home. We are honoured and privileged to share stories on this land.
We wish to also acknowledge that we are grateful to those seeking sustainable solutions to our global climate crisis, so that we may continue to inspire and challenge our audiences near and far.
