Oh! Costume Contest

In the spirit of Halloween and the spooky nature of The Medium, Oh! encourages you to wear your best costume to opening night of The Telephone and The Medium, October 30th!

Patrons can wear their spooky best or dress as their favorite opera star and enter to win a pair of tickets to an Opera in the Heights performance. Come to Lambert Hall an hour before the start of the show and have your photo taken to enter. The Costume Photo Booth will be available for entries from 6:30 PM to 7:10 PM. There are THREE chances to win! One winner will be chosen for each of the following categories: Best in Show, Best Opera-Related, and Spookiest!

The staff of Opera in the Heights would like patrons choosing to compete in this seasonal event to be mindful of the performance space. Costumes with hats, wings, lights, music, or any items that may prove a distraction to other patrons will need to be stored in Fellowship Hall (the basement of Lambert Hall) during the actual performance.
